We'll guide you through the possibilities

It’s important to be well-informed when choosing a roofing material – after all, this is probably one of the biggest investments you will ever make, and you won’t want to have to think much about that investment again for many years to come.

There are a lot of priorities that you will therefore undoubtedly have for your chosen roofing material, including compliance with all relevant British standards and the most minimal possible maintenance requirements.

Whether you choose slate on account of its natural and traditional appearance, or fibreglass GRP or EPDM roofing due to these materials’ own various sophisticated benefits such as exceptional resistance to a wide range of weather conditions, we’ll ensure that your choice gives you the utmost peace of mind.

That will be especially the case when you entrust Findley Roofing & Building to be your roofers in Newcastle upon Tyne, Sunderland, Durham, Northumberland, Middlesbrough or whatever other part of the North East or the UK in which you reside.
