“We had our school roof covered by Tor Coatings in 2 stages and we are delighted with the results! At all times the site was kept neat and tidy, and the roofers on site worked the hours to get the job done. The job was professional from start to finish in every aspect, we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Tor Coatings”
