Roofing contractors around the country have received free on-site tuition thanks to one of the UK’s leading roofing manufacturers, Hambleside Danelaw. The company appointed a product support technician in April to assist users of the company’s products in the best methods of installation and to help customers choose the right product for the application from the extensive Danelaw range.
Field Support Technician, Paul Lambert, has 17 years’ experience in the roofing sector and is a former customer and user of the company’s products. Primarily, the position focused on supporting those on site, this has now developed into offering product demonstrations at merchants for both staff and contractors on best practice and new products. The demonstration days have received positive feedback and been successful in offering free support to those in the roofing sector.
The demonstration days can be organised with Paul directly or through Hambleside Danelaw’s head office. The days are supported by the marketing department, offering merchants sales collateral including brochures, posters, leaflets and social media posts.
Renowned for quality and innovation, Hambleside Danelaw is a leading UK roofing products manufacturer. The company has patented a number of pitched and industrial roofing products and it is committed to finding innovative roofing solutions.
Commenting on the new appointment, Hambleside Danelaw Managing Director, Chris Avery said: “This is the first time we’ll be providing training on the road and it’ll offer contractors the chance to hear about new products, watch demonstrations and learn the latest techniques. It will also help us to deliver our ambition to improve standards and practices across the building industry as a whole.”
Prior to joining Hambleside Danelaw, Paul ran his own company, managing up to 5 different fitting teams. He was a fully approved Dryseal system installer, and his company was the first to provide a full roof in Dryseal GRP to a Grade 1 listed medieval church after repeated lead thefts. He will be responsible for travelling around the country to train merchants, distributors and contractors on site in best practice.
