On Tuesday 19 May 2015, we launched our first Roofing Trade Show, located at our London Colney Branch and supported by a range of our industry leading suppliers. On display was a huge variety of products covering every aspect of roofing, from flat roofs and insulation to roof windows and power tools.

A number of suppliers used the event to showcase their new innovations, give advice on best practice and allow customers to ask the questions to the field experts.

Joining us were industry leaders in Flat Roofing Products, EPDM systems, Fiberglass GRP, Torch on Felt, Tiles, Slates, Roof Windows, Specialist Tools, Guttering and Green Roof Systems.

Keeping everyone going during the show was Adrian from Adrian Webb Street Food, providing attendees with bacon rolls in the morning and Polish Hot Dogs throughout the day. Delicious.


Product Demonstrations

If you attended the trade show you will have seen Velux in their roadshow van, they were at the show to talk to customers about the new Velux generation. The new designs of this generation of windows let in more sunlight while maintaining great energy efficiency and a modern design.

Also making an appearance was Cromar's Pro GRP, they showed the incredible speed at which the compound sets and customers were even invited to hit the flat roof with a hammer just minutes after application revealing no damage to the GRP.

The idea behind the product demos in general was to give customers a hands on and close up experience of materials and equipment they may have seen advertised but not know how they work or best practice for use and application. This means potential buyers can make more well informed purchasing decisions.
