Problems are guaranteed...
Improper “wild” production will most probably lead to bad prestige and to problems in the quality of the product.

... if management is neglected
Like any industrial or semi-industrial process, MCR and FCR production requires good management. This includes the acquisition of raw materials, hiring and guiding qualified workers, daily control of productivity, maintenance of equipment and workshop etc.

Quality control

The most important part of successful MCR and FCR production is continuos quality control of raw materials as well as control of the finished product and its application on the roof. This includes testing cement, sand, fibre and water quality and also load bearing, impact strength and the water tightness of the elements. Guidelines for quality control are available at the Roofing Advisory Service at SKAT.
