Supporting Paul is a sixteen-member strong team who have extensive experience within the roofing industry, most of whom have over ten years within the industry sector.
When visiting the Newcastle Branch, you can not help but notice the great customer service. The team is a great lively bunch who will most certainly give you some banter but will ensure you leave the Depot with a smile.
