1. Digital presence

We help you kick start your online presence by including a free company profile page that will help homeowners to find you online. We have more than 1,000 homeowners searching for a contractor on our website every month. You can get found by potential customers who will also be able to see the great reviews which have been left for you by previous customers.

2. Knowledge and training

MTC changes are coming this year and there will be more focus on installers being able to demonstrate their competency on site. Our MTC Continuum members have free access to our Glazing Competency Portal which has bite-size training sessions, so installers can prove their knowledge and competency ahead of the 2021 changes. By opting to do this, you may reduce your inspection rate.
