Harkin Roofing is a family run business and as far as the Harkin’s are concerned our roofers are part of the family as well.

Because of this Health and Safety is at the forefront of everything we do because it is important to us that our family is safe.

EDGE PROTECTION

Our company policy is that for all roof installations where possible edge protection should be in place to ensure the safety of our roofers. We own the Intaks edge protection system and have a dedicated installation team.
