UK Roofing Awards finalists revealed

The finalists for the 2018 UK Roofing Awards were released by the National Federation of Roofing Contractors (NFRC), at a reception at the Ecobuild show.

The awards scheme, which is in its 12th consecutive year, is said to celebrate the very best in the industry across 14 categories.

Ecobuild show attendees had the opportunity to cast their vote for the Industry Choice Award, which is sponsored by Radmat Building Products.

James Talman, chief executive officer at the NFRC, said: “This year the standard of entries was exceptional, and the judges had a very hard time whittling it down to create this spectacular shortlist.

“Our congratulations go to each and every one of those finalists who should be proud of their achievement. We have some extremely talented, dedicated and ambitious roofing professionals in the UK, and this goes some way towards highlighting their achievements and showcasing best practice and quality in the sector.

“We would like to wish everyone the very best of luck for the finals.”

Winners will be announced at a gala awards luncheon on Friday, May 11, 2018, at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge hotel. The event will be hosted by Dan Walker.
