SPONSORED: When you need a new roof, make sure you ‘plan well’

One of Scotland’s best roofing companies is Planwell Roofing Supplies and it has been manufacturing and supplying high quality, yet affordable, metal roofing since 1989.

Today, as they celebrate 30 years in the industry, the Buckie-based business – which was established as part of the John Duncan Group of companies – is still owned and run by two of the Duncan brothers, Murray and Mark.

Planwell Roofing is always looking to improve its offering and introduce new products for its growing customer base and the latest addition is Nova Mica 0.7mm thick which comes with a 20-year guarantee, making Planwell the only company in the UK currently stocking this.

Planwell began marketing and selling metal roofing, and buying in pre-made roofing sheets to supply with the flashings which they manufactured. Then 10 years later, in 1999, the company invested £1million on building a new factory and purchasing a computerised plant and equipment help expand the business. That was crucial to its success, as it then became a ‘roofing manufacturer’, doing everything in-house. It was also able to expand the services provided and the areas delivered to, thanks to more lorries being added to its fleet.

In the years that followed, Planwell continued to expand and improve its range of roofing products meaning it now provides an even greater choice at more competitive prices for the customer.

Professional roofers ensure your new roof is expertly fitted

As well as supplying quality products, it’s the firm’s excellent customer service that encourages people to recommend Planwell time and time again. With roofing solutions that are built to last, a Planwell roof comes with a written guarantee, so you should never need to replace it.

Mark Duncan, director of Planwell, said: “One of our customers once said to me ‘Do you realise you are selling one of the very few products that actually lasts a lifetime?’ That’s because our Permaroof metal roofing is maintenance free and designed to last for decades.

“We use Swedish metal supplier, SSAB (Swedish Steel); all of their products are of the highest quality, are guaranteed and are designed to last a lifetime.
“On our doorstep in Buckie, my brother and I installed a metal roof at the church hall 35 years ago, and it’s just like new!”

Brother Murray added: “Just a few weeks ago we had a customer from Elgin who said he was ordering his second roof – his first roof he bought from us was 25 years ago and that again it still looked like new.”
