The Heritage Roofing Register Propels Contractor to Victory

Pictured below: Penmaen Cottage - a key heritage project in Snowdonia National Park - that helped Jordan Heritage Roofing Ltd scoop the 2015 UK Roofing Award for Heritage Roofing.

The unique register of Heritage Roofing - developed by the National Federation of Roofing Contractors (NFRC) - proved to be the catalyst behind one roofing contractor not only being appointed to work on a key heritage project in Wales, but also to scooping the 2015 UK Roofing Award for Heritage Roofing.

Jordan Heritage Roofing Ltd, based in Derbyshire, was appointed alongside Slate & Stone Consultants to renovate Penmaen Cottage - a grade two-listed farm building located in Snowdonia National Park. The roofing company guaranteed the confidence and expertise vital for this project by being featured on the National Heritage Roofing Contractors Register. This provides a listing of roofing companies that have the vital skills and experience necessary for the repair and renovation of specialist heritage roofing projects.

With part of its 18th century roof collapsed, Penmaen Cottage was on the ‘at risk’ register and was seen by CADW - the Welsh Government’s historic environment service - as an opportunity to create an exemplar roof, by ensuring traditional local roofing details in the park were sustained, as well as providing a dedicated training programme throughout the process. Upon completion, the project went on to win the 2015 UK Roofing Award for Heritage Roofing.

Ray Horwood CBE, Chief Executive of NFRC comments: “When it comes to selecting contractors for key heritage work, this project is a prime example of the prestige and credibility carried by The National Heritage Roofing Contractors Register. In addition to ensuring that cultural heritage preservation is restored on buildings such as Penmaen Cottage, the Register guarantees the highest standard of roofing expertise and knowledge.”

Richard Jordan of Jordan Heritage Roofing Ltd said: “The Heritage Roofing Register gives local companies with the relevant expertise and training the chance to grow their business and expand their work on key heritage projects. It provides a professional platform that offers high visibility to architects, specifiers and local authority conservation officers.”

Richard adds: “We are delighted that Penmaen Cottage demonstrates the correct approach to roofing conservation, and now provides training for other professionals and slaters. However, winning the 2015 UK Roofing Awards was the ultimate accolade.”

Designed to ensure that the roofs on some of the UK’s most precious buildings are restored to the highest standards possible, The National Heritage Roofing Contractors Register provides an exclusive listing of only those roofing companies that have the vital skills and experience necessary for the repair and renovation of heritage projects.
