About Us

What We Do

As the roof tile industry spokesperson, our association has input to Governments, Education bodies, Roof Tile manufacturers and other Building industry associations.

We also provide industrial representation to the Conciliation and State Industrial Commissions and the Apprenticeship Directorate. We also have input into the Australian Standards and the Construction Industry Training Advisory Board (NSW), both bodies being increasingly important and authoritative in the construction industry.


The association meets monthly to discuss our business. This is an open forum and input from members is encouraged. These meetings provide an opportunity for members to be updated on current happenings, to make public their grievances, and frustrations and provide effective input. 

Our priority is safety

We believe that safety should be a priority for everyone in the roofing industry and are proud to represent those who have dedicated themselves to this cause. Join ARCA today and experience the benefits of being part of the roofing industry’s premier body.

Our ethos is excellence

Our passion is roofing

We are passionate about everything roofing and are committed to providing our members with the knowledge, resources and support needed to succeed in the ever-evolving roofing industry. We strive to be the go-to source for roofing insights, advice, and industry news.

Our History

In 1936 a group of Roofing Tilers saw a need for such a movement and so formed the Master Slaters, Tilers & Shinglers Association, the name reflecting the influence of the various roofing materials at that time.  Recently the name was changed to coincide closer with today's material usage. 

During the eighty plus years of our existence we have maintained continuous service to our members even throughout the war years and are regarded as financially sound and member oriented
