Confederation of Roofing Contractors

Established in 1985, the Confederation of Roofing Contractors (CORC) is the premier roofing trades association in the UK. Our members are considered to be the best roofing contractors in the business. If you require a roof repair or even a completely new roof, our recommended roofers and roofing companies are there for you.

Your roof is the most important part of your property and it is vital that repairs and re-roofs are carried out in order to protect your home.

All new works can carry our fully insured back up guarantee (subject to payment). This protects the customer should their chosen roofing contractor decide to cease trading for any reason during the guarantee period.’
