About us

Brief History

Ronnie and Diane Benns started R G Benns Roofing Co in 1965 installing good quality built-up felt roofing systems throughout East Anglia. In the early 1980’s the company expanded into roof slating & tiling. In the mid 1980’s R G Benns roofing Co started repairing and installing industrial roofing & cladding and also lead roofing.

In 1990 we moved to our new premises nearer to Norwich on the Rackheath Industrial Estate.

In 2004 R G Benns Roofing Co started trading as a Limited company which is now run by Ronnie and Diane’s son Steven and their daughter Deborah who carries out part time administration duties.
