Approved Contractors

Ronacrete highly recommend that products are applied by one of our Approved Contractors. If you would like Ronacrete to recommend an Approved Contractor in your area please phone 01279 638700 with details of the project you have in mind. Alternatively you can fill in the form below and ask for an Approved Contractor again giving details of the project/products being used.

 

Ronacrete can recommend Approved Contractors for all five of their product ranges: Concrete Repair and Coatings, Flooring and Bedding, Resin Bound and Bonded Surfacing, Screeds & Waterproofing and Tanking.

 

A Ronacrete Approved Contractor should be able to show you a signed certificate covering their area of expertise. The logos and certificates are colour coded to differentiate between the five ranges covered, very few contractors are approved in all five specialisms.

 

If you are unsure that a contractor is a bona fide Approved Contractor, please contact our offices and we will be able to check for you and recommend an alternative if necessary.
