Telfer Roofing wins metal tile award

Jonathon Telfer of Telfers Roofing, Kerikeri is the winner of the 2016 RANZ Professionalism in Metal Tile Installation Award, sponsored by Metrotile.

He received the award at this year’s RANZ conference, held at SKYCITY Auckland Convention Centre, judge Des Cowperthwaite of NZ Roofing Consultants Ltd commenting on the exceptional quality of workmanship from this year’s entries.

Telfer Roofing is 100% involved in the residential sector in the Far North where Jono has worked as a roofer since leaving school, with a few breaks in-between. 

Says Jono:  “The most satisfying aspect of winning this award is being recognised for the quality of our installation:  it has been a lot of hard work to attain this level of competency and we can now reap the benefits with new marketing opportunities”.

Joint directors of Telfers Roofing, it was Jono and wife Janine’s own new home that was nominated for the award, an architecturally designed, 42m long, single level residence featuring a ridgeline on the same level throughout involving various changes to the roof plan to accommodate certain pitches and valleys. 

Joint runners-up were Chris George (Cooke Roofing Ltd, Hamilton) whose work was exemplary while Trevor Mason (Mason Roofing, Rotorua) had to remove 12 tonnes of concrete tiles before re-roofing a hacienda-style home with metal tiles in the Bay of Plenty.
