As an organisation embedded within the roofing construction sector, we offer a complete and impartial design and supply service, built around a selection of waterproofing options that are able to meet the specifier’s definite requirements.
Roofing expertise and knowledge are just part of the service that we provide absolutely free to our clients.

Furthermore, our roofing range includes the design and supply of flat roofs, green roofs, and zinc, copper and stainless steel roofing and cladding with the reassurance of advice, appropriate products and solutions, PI Insurance and full system guarantees.
As we provide back to back guarantees that cover both product and workmanship, we work hard to manage the installation process. This is delivered through our accredited contractor scheme (DATAC) where our trained installations contractors are regularly monitored by our team of field technicians. These processes ensure that reliable, experienced roofing contractors install the roof and that they have the specialist technical support on hand when they need it.
Poor roof designs will not only fail to meet the required performance of the roof but will additionally be impossible to install effectively. For this reason we ensure that we are involved in the process of roof design providing J42 design documentation.
As specialists within the whole roofing sector we will help you identify the right solution for your project.
SIG Design Technology have developed two RIBA Core Curriculum approved CPDs
- A structured approach to roof specification and design
- Specifying hard metals: choosing the right product for the project
These seminars set out a step by step process to help you establish the most appropriate solution in any particular circumstance. They work through how to establish the client’s brief, how to ensure compliance, and how to make the right cost decisions. In addition they detail what support to expect from suppliers and offer further sources of information.
