Commenting on the announcement of the winners, James Talman, chief executive of National Federation of Roofing Contractors (NFRC), said: “My congratulations go out to all those who have won at this year’s UK Roofing Awards. It takes a lot to win a roofing award at the best of times, but this year, it has been even harder, with all the projects entered having been completed during the pandemic. You should all be incredibly proud.

I am delighted that we were able to celebrate in person at our largest ever UK Roofing Awards, at the InterContinental at the O2. Whilst our 2020 awards live event wasn’t able to go ahead, we were still able to recognise the 2020 winners through a feature-length film, which was played during the 2021 ceremony and will be available online.”
