UK Roofing Awards 2019- Winners Revealed

The winners of the UK Roofing Awards 2019, hosted by the National Federation of Roofing Contractors (NFRC), were announced at a ceremony hosted by TV host Sarah Beeny on 10 May 2019, at the InterContinental London-The O2

The awards celebrate the very best in the industry in all the roofing disciplines, recognising outstanding workmanship, problem solving, environmental qualities and contribution to the built environment.

The day, which is a key fixture in the industry’s calendar, continued to receive fantastic support from all its industry sponsors, Including BMI and Radmat Building Products, without whom the event would not be the success it was. Once again, SIG Roofing was Headline Sponsor, demonstrating its commitment to showcasing excellence in roofing and recognising the achievements of roofing operatives.
