Earn Money From your Industrial Roof

The government has this week announced a ban on the sale of new diesel and petrol cars by 2030. This revised date has brought forward the government’s original target by 10 years, and is a key part of their wider plan to make the UK carbon neutral by 2050

The RAC have responded to this development and said that the UK’s charging network would have to grow “exponentially” to cope with the demand when sales of electric vehicles (EV) soar as the date of the restrictions near.

We’ve recently strengthened our presence in the commercial solar industry as a trusted installer of quality solar PV systems. In collaboration with our partners, we are able to provide a solution that meets the exact requirements of your property.

So, what’s this got to do with industrial and commercial roofing we hear you say. Well, the places where EV owners will be working such as offices, warehouses and factories are going to need somewhere to charge their car whilst at work. The infrastructure to cope with this extra demand will need to significantly increase and this is where we can help.

Not only does solar PV help to reduce the overall energy consumption of the workplace, it will also maximise the return on investment (ROI) and instantly increases the value of your commercial property. It really is a win-win situation for you and your staff who will need to charge their EV’s.

Furthermore, if your commercial property was built before 1999, it is more than likely to have some kind of asbestos element within your roof. Recent government rulings state that asbestos has to be removed from all buildings before 2035, and we strongly advise you to take advantage of the 150% tax benefit of the cost by removing asbestos as part of your solar PV installation.

Forward-thinking businesses are already reaping the rewards of harnessing energy from the sun and now is the perfect time to seriously consider solar power. A commercial solar PV system offers a fantastic addition to any business be it on a small or large scale, and helps your business work towards a more sustainable future.

Industrial and Commercial Roofing Training

Retain Limited prides itself on its commitment to continuous training to ensure our staff have as much opportunity as possible to keep improving and move forward with their roofing careers

This begins at the top where our director and company founder (Jamie Gibbs) is the regional Chair for the Institute of Roofing (IoR). This role is responsible for encouraging like-minded professionals to embrace collaborative learning to ultimately improve the day-to-day aspect of the industrial and commercial roofing industry.

A key reason we also invest in training is to ensure that our professional and dedicated workforce is kept up to date with the latest regulations and practices that our industry adopts. It’s our aim to be at the forefront of our industry and the training we undertake allows us to be one of the market leaders in our field of expertise.

Other training that we regularly undertake with our staff is provided through manufacturers whose products we regularly use on our roofing projects. This could be how to fit a certain type of cladding properly or learning how to use working at heights equipment in a safe and competent manner.

We like to prove and give confidence to our clients that our roofing staff are competent, safe and formally qualified to work on construction sites. This is the least we can do to make sure they have all the necessary tools and knowledge to deliver beyond what is expected of them.

Jamie Gibbs said: “It’s our aim to recruit and train young people into the industrial and commercial roofing industry and to provide them with the foundation for an exciting, rewarding and successful career.

“We also invest heavily in our training programme to give our clients the best possible service and customer experience when we’re out on site doing what we do best.

“I believe that training and investment in staff should be the backbone of any successful business and this is something that we will continue to do for the foreseeable future.”

Starting an Industrial Roofing Revolution

The industrial revolution started in Great Britain during the 18th century and changed the world by transforming the face of business, economics and society. These shifts had a major effect across the globe and still continues to shape it even to this day.
