Since the retirement of Mr A Clegg, the business is now within the safe and experienced hands of his son Matthew. Matthew has been working for the business for over 25 years both in a hands on capacity undertaking roofing renewals and repairs, and at management level overseeing our cladding department. He therefore has the knowledge and experience to successfully continue the Clegg & Shortman legacy.
