Tauranga company wins roofing award

A 680m2 metal tile roof covering two dwellings won top honours in this year’s Roofing Association of New Zealand’s Professionalism in Metal Tile Roof Installation Award.
Dave Washer of Roofing Systems Ltd installed the roof which the judges said was a pleasure to look at with the straight lines of this expansive roof.

Sponsored by Metrotile NZ, the award was presented at this year’s Roofing Association conference in Wellington.

Features of the design included multiple angles and dormers, sloping soffits, valley flash points, Dutch gable returns, valley exits and hip gable junctions – all installed to a very high standard.

With seven roofing installers in the company Dave’s approach to training apprentices is to be positive while insisting on high standards. He feels the greatest challenge for the roofing contracting industry is finding people with the right attitude.

Dave and wife Dominique, both keen on paragliding and kite surfing, will head to the Gold Coast for the $1500 prize for winning the RANZ Professionalism in Metal Tile Roof Installation Award.
