ROOFSHOP’S CASH-BACK SCHEME HITS THE SPOT!
Roofshop’s innovative ‘Cash for U’ scheme that offers up to £5 cash back per m2 on its flat roof insulation systems for domestic refurbishments, has received an overwhelming response from roofing contractors, with hundreds having registered early and many already enjoying the profit from their claims.
Launched in conjunction with the UK energy industry and linked to the government’s CERT scheme to reduce carbon emissions, this industry-first initiative has become an instant hit as, unlike other schemes, it focuses on the roofing contractor and not the homeowner. Plus, it offers an opportunity to make genuine savings before the CERT scheme expires at the end of this year.
Business Development Manager at Roofshop, Derek Thomas explains: “We are delighted with the speed at which roofing contractors have signed up for this scheme. With a generous cash back reward of up to £100 per home - based on the average size of a domestic flat roof replacement of 20 square metres and only 120mm insulation being required - it’s an opportunity not to be missed!”
Derek adds: “Those contractors that haven’t yet signed up risk losing out on work to the contractors that have. If they are not in the scheme, they cannot use the claim back values to make them more competitive and encourage inclusion of insulation as extra works - the more roofs refurbished, the more cash the contractor can enjoy.”
Cash for U represents the first time that energy saving measures have been specifically directed at flat roofs and, with potential homeowner energy savings of £8 per m2 per annum*, Roofshop is delighted to be pioneering this successful industry initiative.
Applicable to domestic flat roof refurbishments for heated areas of the home - garages are not included - the scheme is open to all UK roofing contractors and is simple and hassle free to operate. After registering for the scheme and presenting a countersigned claim form by the homeowner, the cash back claim will simply be paid directly into the roofing contractors account within 30 days of receipt.
With over 125 branches nationwide and with an unrivalled choice of over 40,000 roofing products, Roofshop provides a one-stop shop for the roofing contractor. Backed by expert advice and efficient service, Roofshop caters for all aspects of flat roofing, from design and materials, to delivery.
