Raising the Roof: Ecosafe Group Attains Accreditation from the NFRC Competent Person Scheme

Roofing experts Billy Sanderson and team proudly display NFRC certification, symbolising our commitment to quality and industry excellence.

In a significant achievement for our roofing services, we are delighted to announce that our Roofing Team has recently secured accreditation from the National Federation of Roofing Contractors (NFRC) Competent Person Scheme (CPS). This accreditation marks a notable advancement in our expertise and capabilities, enabling our team to undertake a diverse range of roofing works with the endorsement of a recognised industry authority.

What Work Is Covered Under the NFRC Competent Person Scheme?

Our accreditation empowers our Roofing Team to excel in various roofing tasks, including but not limited to:

Repair of Roof Structure: This involves the replacement of rotten joists or rafters on a like-for-like basis. It's important to note that work on trussed rafters is not covered under the scheme.

Insulation Insertion: The scheme includes the insertion of insulation, contributing to energy efficiency and improved thermal performance.

Battens and Counter Battens: Provision of battens and counter battens, essential components in roofing structures.

Sheeting or Boarding on Pitched Roofs: Our team is qualified to provide sheeting or boarding on pitched roofs, ensuring durability and weather resistance.

Decking on Flat Roofs: This encompasses the provision of decking, including structural steel decking on industrial/commercial buildings.

Flashing, Guttering, Re-Pointing, Eaves, and Verge Work: Comprehensive roofing services covering essential elements for structural integrity and weatherproofing.

Roof Lights: Installation of roof lights is allowed, provided they are inserted between rafters/joints where the existing structure is not altered.

Benefits of Joining the NFRC Competent Person Scheme

Being a member of the NFRC CPS comes with a host of advantages, both for our team and our clients:

Self-Certification: We can self-certify that our roof refurbishment work complies with Building Regulations, eliminating the need to wait for a Building Control inspector.

Time and Cost Savings: Simple online works notification and completion processes save time, and the Building Regulations Compliance Certificate fee is cost-effective, starting as low as £12.50 (ex VAT) for domestic jobs.

Insurance-Backed Guarantees: Clients receive a Building Regulations Compliance Certificate with a ten-year insurance-backed guarantee for domestic roofing refurbishment works up to £50,000, providing peace of mind.

Automatic Notification to Local Authority Building Control: Completion of works is automatically notified to Local Authority Building Control.

Competitive Edge: We gain a competitive advantage by offering an 'all-in-one' service to customers, backed by NFRC accreditation.

Free 10-Year Warranty: Domestic customers automatically receive a free 10-year warranty along with the Building Regulation Compliance Certificate for contracts up to the value of £50,000.

Technical Support and Training: Access to technical advice, training, and the regularly updated Building Regulations Handbook enhances our capabilities.

Public Visibility: Our business is listed on the NFRC website, allowing members of the public to easily find a NFRC CPS Registered Contractor, leading to increased business.

Reporting Hotline: A hotline allows members to report property owners or roofing contractors not complying with Building Regulations, contributing to industry integrity.

Visible Branding: Vehicle stickers and recognisable logos, including the NFRC CPS logo on our company profile, reinforce our commitment to quality.
