  • Testing carried out by engineers with a minimum of an HNC in an engineering discipline and a minimum of 1 years training with a time served roof installer or 5 years minimum roofing experience and 1 year training with a qualified engineer.
  • All field technicians are CSCS working at height certified, Harness Trained, IPAF trained, Disclosure Scotland checked, Site Health & Safety Awareness trained.
  • Constructionline Accredited
  • Member of BINDT
  • Full reports with every test
  • Full UK wide coverage


All field technicians are cross trained between academic education in electrical/electronics and practical roof installation, along with complete on site roof integrity testing training. Modern Roofing feel this sets us apart from our competitors who may send to site a highly qualified engineer who has great understanding of the test equipment, but has never actually installed the roof system he is testing. This would be fine for finding penetrations, but in these circumstances it would be very difficult to spot incorrect detailing, poor welding etc.. On the other hand sending a roofer to site without detailed understanding of the test equipment and a basic knowledge of electrical and electronics could result in the roofer being unable to interpret the results from the testing machines.
