Commercial Roof Systems for Installing Contractors

Commercial roof systems for the installing contractor

At IKO, we recognise that the quality of any commercial roof system is only as good as the quality of its installation. IKO installing contractor training programmes show our commitment to delivering high quality installations, from the design and planning to finishing stages of each project. Providing expertise, sharing knowledge and offering ongoing support to everyone within our supply chain is at the core of our philosophy.

We offer several specialist installer training courses to ensure those that use our products have a full understanding of the installation methods and application of our full roof systems as well as our waterproofing systems. Contractors receive hands on training on the full IKO product range in our fully equipped, purpose built training centres.

Practical demonstrations and theoretical information are the staples of each course. Full support is provided by our highly experienced trainers. The skill and knowledge of each installing contractor will be signed off upon completion of the respective course. The knowledge and skills gained will help our approved contractors install high performance systems that will last the test of time.
