Fibre flat roofing system training day announced

Local builders’ merchants General Building Plastics has teamed-up with building materials supplier Cromar to host a training day at its Banbury branch on July 10th, when roofers and builders can learn how to install the latest in advanced glass fibre flat roofing systems.

The system, Cromar’s ProGRP, is a new advanced liquid applied glass reinforced polyester flat roof system, specifically engineered for flat roof applications in the UK.

It is a fully integrated seamless system where all the components are designed to work together and can be used on virtually all types of flat roofs up to and including vertical surfaces for example the cheeks of a dormer or the inside face of a mansard or parapet roof.

For installers to fully understand the system and why and how it should be fitted, the company provides full training in association with its stockists and distributors.

Clare Falls, support manager at GB Plastics, explains: “As part of our ongoing commitment to supporting roofers, building trade professionals, keen DIY-ers and all our customers who are looking to improve their flat roofing skills, we are hosting a training day at the branch on 10th July.

“This will be the second training day, and Cromar’s area trainer Scott Williams, a roofer himself, will run the session.”

GB Plastics’ Simon Tate works at the Banbury branch and took part in the last training day earlier this year. He said: “Scott’s training involved a step-by-step guide to the product to ensure anyone fitting the ProGRP understands the importance of each step in the installation to ensure it is fitted correctly so that the product will work correctly.”

Silviu Popa, owner of roofing business Just Flat Roof in Bicester that specialises in flat roofing, also attended the training course. He said: “The whole course was a great experience; the staff was very friendly and there was a practical approach to everything. We are very glad we attended it and would recommend the day to other roofers.”

The training day costs £100 per person, and once completed, will enable tradespeople to offer customers a 25-year guarantee on their Cromar ProGRP roof installation.
