Barclay Roofing Secures Place on NFRC Heritage Register

After 35 years of providing the highest quality roofing services across the North of England, with a real specialism in heritage works, Barclay Roofing have secured their place on the National Federation of Roofing Contractor’s Heritage Register.

The register is in place to help ensure that the roofs on the nation’s most precious buildings are restored to the highest possible standards. And, with one of the oldest housing stocks in the world, the UK has a special interest in maintaining these important buildings.

NFRC developed the Heritage Register to be a trusted source of information for those who are responsible for ensuring these historic landmarks are preserved for future generations. The unique service provides assurance for specifiers and others seeking a roofing contractor to carry out this exacting work that they appoint a company with the most appropriate skills and experience in the field.

Although Barclay Roofing is renowned as a ‘go to’ for complex heritage work, the company has never featured on the NFRC register until now. The company is known for its heritage slating and leadwork in particular, and has led high profile refurbishments across the region including The Great North Museum, Sunderland Minster and Middlesbrough Town Hall to name a few.

Esme Flounders, Director at Barclay Roofing said of the award:

“We are delighted to finally feature on the NFRC Heritage Register. The team at NFRC have been suggesting we join for years, but it’s only recently that we made the move. We were too busy putting roofs on!

Joking aside, this is a progression we should have made years ago, as we really are known as a quality provider of heritage services thanks to the quality and skill of our operatives and management team. Joining the register makes that standing ‘official,’ and also helps to raise the importance of competence across heritage refurbishment and the roofing industry more broadly.

The team at NFRC were very supportive in guiding us through the application process, which was actually very straightforward. We are now looking forward to refurbishing the North’s truly magnificent heritage housing and building stock under the official banner of true skill and specialism.”
