NFRC encourages members to join Which? Trusted Traders

As part of its recently launched membership awareness campaign – ‘Get wise, get savvy, get NFRC’ – The National Federation of Roofing Contractors is encouraging contractors to stand out from the crowd and further enhance their reputation by joining Which? Trusted Traders. In doing so, they can enjoy a 50% discount off Which? Trusted Traders’ joining fee, thanks to their membership of NFRC.

Which? Trusted Traders is an endorsement scheme that recognises reputable traders in the home improvement and motoring repair industries. By thoroughly vetting and assessing all traders who apply to join – a process which has been streamlined for NFRC members, as vetting has already been carried out – consumers who use Which? Trusted Traders can feel confident that they are choosing a reputable tradesperson.

After successfully passing the Which? Trusted Traders assessment, contractors are able to use the recognisable scheme logo and receive an enhanced web listing and profile page. As an extra benefit, all traders signed up to the scheme have access to alternative dispute resolution provided by Ombudsman Services.

Ray Horwood CBE, Chief Executive of NFRC explains: “What better endorsement can there be? If contractors want to be known as the best roofers, then this scheme is for them. Being endorsed by Which? Trusted Traders delivers peace of mind for customers before they even ask for a quote, whilst contractors get to benefit from the prestige of membership and homeowner reviews.”

Ray continues: “It’s all about standing out from the crowd. Hiring a contractor who is a member of both Which? Trusted Traders and NFRC gives customers that extra layer of protection and reassurance that they are employing the very best craftspeople.”

Stephen McCluskey, Managing Director at Which? Trusted Traders comments: “NFRC and Which? Trusted Traders have been working collaboratively since October last year. Our endorsement scheme helps traders stand out from the crowd and lets prospective consumers know that they are endorsed by the consumer champion Which? who have been testing and recognising products and services for nearly 60 years.

NFRC members who join Which? Trusted Traders are eligible for a discounted rate, which is just one of the many benefits that NFRC membership brings. In addition to being fast tracked to joining CompetentRoofer, which enables self-certification for Building Regulations on roof refurbishment, NFRC members also benefit from automatic membership of the Government-endorsed TrustMark scheme at no extra cost.
