Greenough & Sons came out winners at the recent RCI Pitched Roofing Awards, which was hosted virtually by comedian Jo Caulfield on the 26th February.
The Company won in the ‘Best Use of a Roof Tile for a Heritage Roof’ category for its contract at Y Sospan cafe, Dolgellau.
The building dates back to 1606 and maintains many original features, including the ‘vernacular’ roof. The roof was laid with small random width and diminishing length Welsh slates and ‘single-cut-swept’ valleys.
The award represented the first ever win for Greenough & Sons at the RCI (Roof Cladding and Insulation) Pitched Roofing Awards, complementing the nine NFRC (National Federation of Roofing Contractors) Awards the company has won in the past ten years.
Heritage Foreman Llewelyn Gerrard received particular praise for his workmanship and project management, with the awarding judge commenting: “this project shows exceptional workmanship and true heritage works. It highlights great use of natural slate with some very traditional detailing. The overall appearance with stone walling looks stunning!”
