Accurate technical knowledge
Agnostic systems approach
Advice that you can trust

Our triple-A approach designed to make your life easier: AccuRoof provides complete project support for roofing, assisting with specification, supply and installation.

Take the risk out of specifying with AccuRoof

Playing catch up with regulations, struggling to find objective technical advice, contemplating a complex specification with no obvious solution?  

Roof design can create time-consuming challenges for architects. At AccuRoof, we make your challenges our problem.  

From navigating legislative changes to aesthetic alignment, we consider all elements of your project, and can provide support from start to finish. With a clean slate approach to specification advice and access to our detailed product performance information, we help architects find and deliver the best possible roofing solution

Agnostic approach to roofing systems and brands
A full service partner: from specification advice to supply and installation
Warranties ‘from the deck up’, for both new build and refurbishment projects
Specialist knowledge of single ply, liquid, hot melt, green roof, clay, slate, zinc, copper, and stainless steel roofing and cladding systems
A national network of hundreds of trained, registered, and supported roofing contractors
PI Insured, independent advice that considers regulations, standards, sustainability, aesthetics, design intricacies, performance targets and more.

AccuRoof: the new name for SIG Design & Technology

Precision and accuracy are the cornerstones of specification. Design is a painstaking process that demands careful consideration. Small errors can lead to big future headaches – and we’re here to help you avoid them with accurate, trusted advice and comprehensive support for your roofing projects.

As part of SIG Roofing and SIG plc, you have the backing of one of Europe’s major suppliers of products to the construction industry. We’re a trusted pair of hands that you can rely on for projects of all shapes and sizes.

AccuRoof 5 Broadgate City of London

As a supplier with a broad product portfolio, we aren’t biased to any one roofing technology or brand. With AccuRoof, you know you’re getting a recommendation based on suitability, not stock.

In an ever-changing world of legislation, we help architects and specifiers make the informed choice. Our specialists help you cut through the red tape, taking the burden of navigating regulations off your shoulders.

Extensive product knowledge, roofing expertise and decades of experience helps us provide technical support you can rely on. Listed buildings, tricky details, large-scale projects: whatever your challenge, our team can help.

Our roofing systems can be provided with material, labour (in the event that the roofing contractor goes into insolvency) and system warranties of various periods depending on your requirements and the system.

Your design may be exceptional, with creative solutions and a precise specification, and still be unravelled by a poor installation. Our national network of specially trained and registered roofing contractors can implement your vision, as you see it.

Years of collaboration with the industry’s leading manufacturers provides flexibility and makes their range of tested and compatible materials, products and components easily accessible to you.
