NFRC are now inviting submissions for next year’s Awards, which recognise outstanding workmanship across the roofing and cladding industry.
The NFRC UK Roofing Awards will return on Friday 12 May 2023, once again at InterContinental London—The O2, and NFRC is now welcoming entries from across the roofing and cladding industry.
Can I enter the UK Roofing Awards?
Entries are now open, with submissions welcome from members of NFRC, NFRC Competent Person Scheme (formerly CompetentRoofer), and selected other trade associations. Uniquely this time, NFRC are accepting entries for projects that were completed within a two-year window between 1 January 2021 and 31 December 2022; as the Covid-19 pandamic meant the normal schedule of the awards had to be changes in 2020 and 2021.
The deadline to submit your project is Friday 13 January 2023.
Whilst many entries are made by contractors, submissions from manufacturers, architects and specifiers are also encouraged and welcomed, as long as the roofing contractor on the project is a member of one of the qualifying trade associations.

Why should I enter the UK Roofing Awards?
The Awards recognise and reward outstanding standards of workmanship and health and safety among competent roofing companies.
Winning or being shortlisted at the UK Roofing Awards means that your team is recognised for their great work and your company raises its profile across the industry, as well as receiving free PR in industry newsletters and publications.
Can I attend the 2023 awards show?
You can now purchase tickets for the 2023 UK Roofing Awards.
NFRC Members can obtain tickets for £195 per seat—or even better value when purchasing a whole table of ten seats, at £1750.
Non-Members are also very welcome, with tickets at £250 per seat, or a whole table for £2150.
NFRC wishes to thank the event’s sponsors: Radmat Building Products (headline sponsor), Bauder, BMI, CUPA PIZARRAS S.A., ICB, Marley, Recticel Insulation, Siderise, SIG, and Sika. Without these sponsors, it would be impossible to keep ticket prices down to ensure as many companies as possible can access the event despite signicifant cost increases in the hospitality and events industry over the past couple of yers.
James Talman, NFRC CEO, said, “I am delighted that the UK Roofing Awards will be back in 2023 after a hugely successful Awards last November. Once again I am looking forward to this major opportunity to celebrate excellent workmanship, innovation, and safe practices in our industry.
“We decided not to run a 2022 event in order to run the 2023 Awards in May, returning to the pre-Covid timing of the event—it would have been too soon after November’s event to go ahead in May 2022. It takes time to prepare an event on this scale and to such a high standard.“
Robert Speroni, Managing Director of Radmat Building Products, added, “Radmat Building Products is delighted to be the headline sponsor of the UK Roofing Awards once again for 2023—we were very pleased to be associated with the 2021 event, the largest Roofing Awards yet. We are looking forward to the 2023 Awards, which will be another great chance to celebrate the very best work in our industry.“
