May Winner – Pitch – MF Roofing
MF Roofing was established in March 2012 with the clear aim of offering two things:
- High-quality roofing services
- Outstanding customer service
My background, before self-employment, was eight years working in the industry for a larger company. It was here I completed my apprenticeship, learnt the tricks of the trade and developed my skills. After this, I continued working as a roofer for another four years, completing jobs on a range of property types and roofing projects. It was this early time in my career when I developed my passion for working with older properties, particularly listing buildings. I was fascinated by their character and their history, and so learnt everything I could about the different ways I could help to preserve these when completing roofing jobs. From that point, I knew that I wanted to specialise in listed properties.
Since starting MF Roofing, I’ve always placed importance on staying up-to-date with the latest trends and standards, which allows us to remain at the cutting edge within our sector.
Despite not much having changed in the industry over the past hundred years, MF Roofing approaches our work with knowledge drawn from traditional and new building practices, to offer the best services no matter the job or the property.
Traditional slating itself has almost become a dying art. Few companies are left who fully know how to carry out this sort of work, partly due to economic pressures. People want work carried out as fast and cheaply as possible, and not many can keep up. Carrying out work to a roof using old reclaimed slate, with traditional methods is neither fast nor cheap. Having said all that, I was to ensure all our clients that I will carry on with passing these old school ways of working to the next generations to come.
