RCi is the leading magazine for the roofing and cladding industry. It is renowned for its in-depth coverage of the industry, its technical content, its industry commentators and its close links with manufacturers and contractors which allow it to break the news first.
The magazine covers all aspects of roofing, from slating and tiling to flat roofing, twin skin and composite systems. When it comes to cladding - either twin-skin or composite - the entire building envelope is considered, including insulation.
Each month RCi editorial covers metal cladding, flat roofing, slates and tiles, roof safety and access plus specified special features, for example liquid roofing, sarkings and underlays or rainwater systems. In addition, it publishes the RCi Directory each year another industry first which keeps the magazine ahead of its competition.
RCi is distributed to more than 7,000 readers. Of those, 38 per cent are roofing contractors and 25 per cent specifiers (architects, surveyors, consultants). The remainder of the readership comprises public sector officers and housing associations, roofing and builders merchants, other contractors plus industrial, commercial and manufacturing companies.
