Stormking is the only GRP manufacturer of GRP Dormer Roofs, GRP Bay window and GRP Chimneys to hold BBA certificates for these products and we have held the BBA certificates for their GRP dormer roofs and bay window roofs for over 10 years. This means that they have been maintained and audited every year to ensure that the customer gets the same level of quality build ever time the product is produced, not any other GRP manufacturers can prove this happens with other accreditations. Stormking have set these standards and are geared to maintain them for the foreseeable future, even when cheaper, less affective accreditations are on the market.
