The Federation also offers training and technical advice, and represents member interests to the wider construction industry and government. The RTA (Roof Tile Association) represents the concrete and clay roof tile manufacturers in the UK. Its purpose is to share best practice and shape standards in the industry for pitched roofs, as well as providing the latest guidance and information on the use of roof tiles. Their combined knowledge of traditional pitched tiled roofs is now available to share with anyone looking to create the most environmentally responsible, thermally efficient and architecturally inspiring roofs in the UK.
