The UK’s leading liquid waterproofing specialist Hyflex has been awarded the Liquid Applied Roofing award at the prestigious NFRC Scottish Roofing Contractor of the Year Awards 2014 for the second year running.
The award for the company’s waterproofing application at the Holiday Inn Express in Glasgow reinforces the company’s position as the market leader in cold applied liquid waterproofing systems.
The awards were organised and held by the NFRC on Friday 24th October at the Trades Hall in Glasgow and presented by TV personality Kaye Adams. The event, sponsored by Sig Roofing, saw more than twenty roofing contractors from across Scotland hoping to win in a range of categories that included Green Roofing, Single Ply and Liquid Applied Waterproofing.
Held at the Dynamic Earth science centre in Edinburgh on Friday 25th October, the annual ceremony recognises and rewards outstanding standards of workmanship and safety demonstrated within the roofing industry over the previous twelve months.
In the Grange area of Edinburgh, the existing roof of St Raphael’s Care Home had been exposed to several decades of harsh Scottish weather and was in need of a facelift. To meet the project’s tight ten week deadline, Hyflex recommended the lightweight, tough and totally waterproof Exemplar Roofing System.
With the works completed on time and on budget, Hyflex were immediately awarded a further five care homes by the same client to which work have already been successfully completed.
NFRC prides itself on the highest standards of health and safety and workmanship in roofing. The annual awards reward and celebrate the pinnacle of the roofing industry, with some breathtaking projects – including St Raphael’s Care Home – demonstrating outstanding technical excellence and aesthetic qualities.

Albert Bruff, Briggs Amasco Group Safety Advisor commented:-
“The reason Hyflex Scotland branch was chosen was for their continued progress on how they prepare and set up their larger contracts, whilst there was close competition from the BA Hull branch and BA Manchester branch, We felt that most of Hyflex Scotland contracts last year involved being principal contractor and the time, effort and presentation of their sites were very good, and they had a couple of visits from the HSE and no problems were found, They also maintained a very close working relationship with the client and went the extra mile to ensure the residents of the buildings they were working on were kept informed of progress and kept disruption to a minimum. Very well done to all staff and operatives, well deserved”

The Roofing Awards – an annual highlight for the industry – recognises and rewards the outstanding standards of workmanship demonstrated by members of the National Federation of Roofing Contractors (NFRC). The awards are judged by a panel of independent professionals overseen by the NFRC – further enhancing Hyflex’s reputation as one of the industry’s leading roofing contractors.
