Pitched Roofing Awards 2021 Shortlist

The standard of entries we have received for the 2021 Pitched Roofing Awards has been exceptional, shining a light on the complex workmanship and high-quality products involved on the individual projects.

We have some extremely talented, dedicated, and ambitious roofing professionals in the UK, and the Pitched Roofing Awards goes some way towards highlighting their achievements and showcasing best practice and quality in the roofing sector.

Here at RCI, we would like to take this opportunity to say a big ‘thank you’ to everyone who took the time to submit an entry for the Awards, and to wish them the very best of luck for the finals.

The RCI team’s attention is now on the judging process, where our independent panel of industry experts will come together and utilise their years of expertise to pick the winners for each of the categories.
