Welcome to The Pitched Roofing Awards

Nominations are now open for the Pitched Roofing Awards

Following the astounding success of the inaugural event, the Pitched Roofing Awards, which is brought to you by the publisher of RCI magazine, returns to shine a spotlight on the sector’s most outstanding projects and people who operate within the industry.

From innovative product design and materials used on a project, to the complexity of the installation, roofing contractors and manufacturers can now submit an entry for themselves or recognise other contractors and individuals who they believe to be award-worthy. So, if you’ve worked on a pitched roofing project within the last 12 months, and you feel that it deserves greater recognition, then you should enter the Pitched Roofing Awards.

Deadline extension for entries for 2 weeks, you may now enter the awards up until Friday 27th September but don’t delay and start working on your nominations now! 

The winners of this year’s Pitched Roofing Awards will be revealed at a luncheon at the prestigious Midland Hotel in Manchester on 5th December. We hope to see you there to celebrate the winning of our industry’s highest accolades.

Good luck to everyone from the Pitched Roofing Awards team!

Having attended the Pitched Roofing Awards as a guest in December 2018, we were extremely impressed with the quality and professionalism of this event. It is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate some of the fantastic work and innovation in the roofing sector and also to network with a broad range of roofing professionals. We are delighted to be confirmed as a sponsor for 2019 and look forward to a fantastic event

John Lovatt, Market Manager, Forticrete

“We submitted an entry into the RCI Roofing Awards in 2018 because we believed that our slate re-roofing project at ‘Urmston Grammar School’ merited inclusion. We were shortlisted for the award but were not fortunate enough to win in our category. However, we realised that being shortlisted was an achievement in itself and was recognition from industry peers as to the quality of our work and the delivery of the project...

...We have also realised that industry recognition of our project through our shortlisting for the award is an excellent testimonial for us to use in the growth of our business. We now use evidence we used in our entry and the shortlisting notification as selling points for potential new clients. This has enabled us to secure 2 large school re-roofing contracts with a new client. Being able to evidence quality and industry recognition via the awards process has been extremely beneficial and gives prospective clients confidence in engaging our company”
