About Us

cu.tech.zn.ornamental ltd are a roofing contractor installing purely hard metals such as Copper, Zinc, Stainless Steel and Aluminium to roofs, vertical cladding and Rain Water Goods. We are members of the Federation of Traditional Metal Roofing Contractors and have been since its inception.

The business was started in 1994 by Colin Wallington, then known as cu.tech. and later became incorporated in 2002 as cu.tech.zn.ornamental ltd. The Director Colin has 40 years’ experience installing Copper, Zinc, Stainless Steel and Aluminium and is still seen on the tools today.

Our portfolio ranges from Conservation and Heritage projects to self-builds. We specialise in traditional methods of installation of Domes, Spires and Ornamental works using Copper and Zinc, but also long strip standing seam and numerous types of vertical cladding in Copper, Zinc, Stainless Steel and Aluminium. We project manage throughout the entire length of the contract that we undertake in order to achieve the required finish for both the Architect and Client.

cu.tech.zn. work closely with the project architect, building contractor and the client, offering free advice, enabling them to design and solve any problems they may have in their design.

We offer the same service along with supply and fix to other roofing contractors on occasions, where this resource is not provided by them directly.

We are recommended and approved installers of Rheinzink, Aurubis, VM Zinc , KME, Uginox and Traditional Textures.

We carry out works in many areas of the country, for example East Anglia, the Midlands, the South and South East plus others.

We have been very fortunate to have been awarded recognition over the years by Sussex Heritage Trust, CDA and NFRC.
