Andrew Bradshaw, a partner at RTC has been appointed as the Northern Area Chairman of the Property Care Association (PCA).
The Association represents the UK’s damp-proofing and timber preservation industries, as well as structural waterproofing and structural maintenance.
The Property Care Association (PCA) has been in existence for four years as part of the British Wood Preserving and Damp-proofing Association (BWPDA) but last year officially became an independent association, along with the Wood Protection Association.
The new Associations have been created to concentrate on their own areas of expertise – namely for the Property Care Association – damp-proofing and timber preservation, structural waterproofing and structural maintenance.
Although a relatively new trade body, the Property Care Association has inherited the stability and professional strengths of the BWPDA and its 75 year history.
This includes the choice of a long-term FSA regulated specialist insurance policy, and a UK-wide list of contractor members who are all carefully vetted before being awarded membership – and are then subject to rigorous auditing procedures once admitted to the Association.
The Property Care Association is also a member of TrustMark the scheme supported by Government, to help property owners find reliable and trustworthy trades people to make home improvements.
