Keep metal (and lead!) alive

ALM in-house training helps develop your roofing skills in both lead work and hard metals.

Evidence of the stunning roofscapes metal creates is all around us – from the historic dome of St Paul’s Cathedral in London, to the Art Deco grandeur of the Chrysler Building in New York, the use of metal on roofs has stood the test of time. It’s a tradition that goes back thousands of years and one whose popularity shows no signs of diminishing.

Despite the specialist knowledge required, leadwork and hard metals are increasingly popular today on roofs for both commercial and residential buildings. To keep those skills alive and pass them on to the next generation of roofers, training providers like ALM are an essential part of the industry.

If you’re looking to develop your skills in leadwork or hard metals (or both) ALM provide courses in their very own in-house training facility in East Hertfordshire. As one of the country’s leading experts in lead and hard metal roofing the team’s knowledge at ALM is second to none. Whether you’re an experienced contractor or a budding installer, they can guide you through everything you need to know about installing zinc, copper, stainless steel, aluminium or lead.

They also work extremely closely with all the major European metal manufacturers to ensure that their training meets the highest standards and is completely up-to-date. From standing seam roofing and cladding on new finishes, to alloys and detailing requirements, you can be absolutely sure that if these guys don’t know it, it’s because it doesn’t exist.

ALM supports all the key industry associations and their trainers so they’re totally up-to-date with the latest developments. On their courses you’ll develop your skills with all the tools and equipment you’ll ever need and their knowledge of these vital accessories is as good as it gets.

Don’t take our word for it though – get down to their in-house training centre in Hoddesdon and find out for yourself.
