Training & Support

Working with you the contractor

Correct installation methodologies prescribed by Sharmans are critical to the lifetime performance of our gutter and roof refurbishment systems. Our Approved Contractor Network receives comprehensive installation training and our national network of Technical Services Managers and Technical Support Centre provide full support on all site activity from initial survey through to installation and guarantee request. Moreover, a programme of site inspections and/or audits is applied on all projects as a prerequisite to release the system guarantees.

At Sharmans we pride ourselves on providing the highest level of technical information and customer support to our Approved Contractor partners. We provide a suite of sales support tools including samples, specifications, marketing materials and training programmes.

Purpose Built Training Centres

We have two purpose built training facilities – one at our head office in Derbyshire and another in Wiltshire. At both, contractors learn from our experienced Training team about key system components and the installation methods required to secure the system’s guarantee. Training programmes include a blended and interactive programme:

  • A review of the key system gutter and roof profiles
  • Hands-on practical application and fitting skills using purpose built demonstration rigs
  • Hot air gutter welding techniques for bespoke moulded components
  • The 12 Golden Rules of Plygene Gutterline installation with supporting videos
  • Digital support tools for installers
  • Site inspection and certification requirements to secure the system guarantees
  • Practical hands-on survey guidance

 

Approved Contractor Network

To ensure the highest level of installation quality control, we operate a national
network of certified Approved Contractors, fully qualified in the installation of
our systems.

Our Experience

See all case studies

FirstGroup, Bus Depot

Continuous leaks in the roof of First Bus’s depot in Boyle Street, Manchester defied all remediation attempts.

Great Bear Distribution Limited

Gutter leaks at the Great Bear storage warehouse were in need of repair and a successful refurbishment of the gutter system would go a long way to attract new customers looking for safe storage in a Control of Major Accident Hazards (COMAH) regulated establishment.

Thomas Cook Building, Falkirk

As an integral part of the roof refurbishment works to Thomas Cook’s commercial offices near Falkirk, Scotland, Plygene Gutterline was specified to refurbish the gutter network and prevent leaks for good.
