Falmouth Flat Roofing
The port of Falmouth – an historically important naval centre guarding the entrance to the English Channel – was the first town in Britain to receive the news of Admiral Nelson’s death at Trafalgar in 1805. Although it’s steeped in matters maritime, Falmouth has plenty of other claims to fame, not least of which are several remarkable tertiary educational establishments, a reputation as a top holiday spot and great cultural institutions. This fortunate Cornish town also has recourse to one of the best roofing companies in the south west – Cornwall Flat Roofing Ltd!
This company has been installing and fixing roofs in Falmouth (and not just flat ones!) since 1968 when it was founded by the father of the current owner/director, Adrian Saundry.
