Headline sponsor announced for awards celebrating roofing

Hosted by the National Federation of Roofing Contractors (NFRC), the awards recognise and reward outstanding standards of workmanship and technical excellence across the roofing industry

SIG Roofing has once again shown its commitment to celebrating the industry’s achievements by becoming Headline Sponsor for the UK Roofing Awards 2019.

For more than 10 years SIG Roofing has sponsored the event including the ‘Roof of the Year Award’ and the ‘Local Hero Award’, which it developed with the NFRC last year to celebrate the work of contractors that often gets overlooked.

Stuart Base, Marketing Director of SIG Roofing, said: “We are thrilled to be Headline Sponsor for the awards again. They are a highlight in the roofing calendar that showcase the excellent standards of roofing projects completed each year in the UK.

“Last year we sponsored ‘Local Hero Award’ because we are keen to recognise the activities of contractors that can go unnoticed, such as working on community projects for free, and we continue to sponsor this important category.”

The awards scheme, which is in its 13th consecutive year, is the most prestigious in the roofing sector and celebrates the very best in the industry across 14 categories. The categories highlight beautiful structures, outstanding workmanship, superior problem solving, environmental qualities and contribution to the built environment.

Amanda Brackey, head of marketing and communications at the NFRC, said: “We are delighted to be working with SIG Roofing again. For more than 10 years they have supported the awards and it is a testament to their commitment at recognising great achievements within the roofing community that enables the awards to continue.

“Through our dedicated partners, we are able to celebrate best practice and innovation in roofing, as well as evolve the awards to be continually relevant to the sector. We are also pleased to once again be hosting the Local Hero Award to draw attention to the roofers who dedicate time and resources to their local community and to those in need.”

The winners of the awards will be unveiled at a glittering luncheon on 10 May 2019 at the InterContinental London-The O2.
