Launch of Old Plean Roofing – January 2019

Thornton Construction Consultants Ltd launch new roofing business

A new roofing business has launched with the aim of improving industry standards.
Thornton Construction Consultants Ltd have set up Old Plean Roofing after spotting a gap in the market for reliable roofers.

Thornton Construction Consultants (TCC) is a highly regarded consultancy providing technical advice on roofing to construction businesses which operates from premises based in Old Plean.

TCC is now expanding in a move which will bring Mark’s 30 + years of industry experience to the domestic market covering Central Scotland and Fife.

Mark, who began learning about roofing in his father’s firm aged 12, has a real passion for the trade and a determination the job should be done properly.

He said: “I love roofing – it’s the perfect job for me after working so long in the business.
“Whether it’s a flat or a pitched roof, I know how they fit together, all of their systems and their capabilities in different weather conditions.

“We’re launching our new roofing business because we feel there is a real need for honest, efficient roofers with high levels of competency to serve people in the area.”
Old Plean Roofing specialises in flat roofing – an area that we have a great deal of experience in as training managers for the Single Ply Roofing Association (SPRA)

We also work with pitched roofs and services include fixing leaks, clearing blocked gutters, replacing slates and tiles and repairing roofs following water, wind or theft damage.

Old Plean Roofing also offers a free maintenance check one year after work has been completed.

Mark said: “We pride ourselves on our reputation and on raising standards across the industry.

“This means when you employ us, we will do the job properly and you won’t have to call us back out.

“We will do the work right the first time using high-quality commercial grade products and we will do it safely and correctly adhering to all health and safety standards.

“We will also keep the homeowner completely up to date on what’s happening, and we will come back to carry out a maintenance check after 12 months.

“We are proactive about that and will contact the homeowner to arrange the visit which we see as an essential part of the deal.”

Mark is a member of the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) and The Institute of Roofing (IoR) and has worked for over three decades in the construction industry.

He began by helping at his father’s Northern Irish company, James Thornton Roofing Contractors, on a Saturday while still at school before joining the family firm when he was 17.

He started his working life as a labourer before progressing to Contracts Manager, Lead Estimator and Operations Director and then moving on to work for other construction firms in Scotland.

TCC was established in December 2016 and is committed to raising standards in the roofing and cladding sectors of the construction industry.

TCC now aim to offer our expertise to the domestic market with the launch of Old Plean Roofing which will cater for residential customers.

And with the new year just beginning, January is an ideal time to have your roof checked over before Spring arrives.

Mark says: “Give us a call and we will come out and provide you with a free roof health check.

“January is a good time to ensure your roof is in good order and you are well protected for the rest of winter and before the onset of Spring with its variable weather conditions.”
