Ultraroof is the only roofing system to have been shortlisted in the category at the prestigious awards, which is brought to you by RCI magazine, which acknowledges and rewards excellence for all those working within the pitched roofing sector.
Commenting on the company’s shortlist success, Alex Hewitt, marketing director at Ultraframe, said: “The two projects shortlisted are both fantastic examples of Ultraroof’s capabilities. One demonstrates perfectly how Ultraroof saves huge amounts of money on steel goalposts due to its immense strength, and the other is a roof replacement/change of roof style on a tricky shape – but of course, Ultraroof can be used for any shape or style of roof.”
The two installation companies shortlisted for the Ultraroof projects are Green & Heritage Roofing of Halifax, and Southern Conservatories of North Perrott.
Green & Heritage Roofing undertook a project which involved transforming a T-shaped polycarbonate conservatory into a contemporary Ultraroof lean-to extension, complete with several full-length glazed panels. The change of shape meant the project was technically difficult, but this was not a problem for the Ultraroof system as it can be used for any shape or size of roof.
Southern Conservatories is shortlisted with a gable style Ultraroof extension, which features a large span of bi-folds. Thanks to the incredible strength of the Ultraroof 380mm box eaves beam, no additional support was needed over the doors, and so the installer was able to save around £3,000 compared to using other roofs on the market, where a steel goalpost would have been required.
Alex concluded: “We feel extremely proud that both shortlisted entries in the Solid Roof category at the Pitched Roofing Awards are for Ultraroof projects, and we would like to offer huge congratulations and the best of luck to our retail customers who designed and built these stunning projects.”
