Kestrel Installers Have Access to NVQ for Roofline Installation

Although a large national industry, PVC-UE roofline installers have not had access to a professional qualification, until now. Kestrel, the leading no lead, no tin, 100% calcium organic brand of PVC-UE building products, is pleased to announce it has teamed up with Wigan & Leigh College to provide a formal qualification in roofline installation for all Kestrel Registered Installers.

“It seems crazy to me that such an important profession has never been able to achieve a qualification in the skill of installing PVC-UE roofline,” explains Tony Crutcher, Sales and Marketing Director of the Kestrel brand. “This means installers don’t have anything on paper to show homeowners they know what they’re doing where roofline installation specifically is concerned. This is particularly important of course with consumers being reminded to look out for cowboy tradesmen. The course we have set up with Wigan & Leigh College promotes best practice and will include an array of guidance including general workplace safety, efficient work practices and installation of eaves, verge and rainwater systems. We believe this qualification will help our installer customers win more sales because they will be able to offer the homeowner additional peace of mind when working on their property.

“Kestrel will be offering access to this qualification exclusively to its Registered Installers, giving them another means of clearly differentiating themselves from the competition. Kestrel installers can already stand out with one of the widest product ranges in the industry, more environmentally friendly 100% Calcium Organic products, 3 shades of white to match any brand of existing window or guttering profile and extensive marketing support, but they will now also be able to demonstrate their competence before even starting an installation. We want to give our installers everything they need to get ahead of the competition.”
