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...

Allied Roofing & Construction Ltd

...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”
