A Ssshhhhh noise comes from the extensive audio system in the Hyatt Regency’s Grand Ball Room, “I’d like to kick off the evening with the presentation of the first category”. Marty Fields is the compere for the evening, hosted by the NSW Metal Roofing Association to recognize Excellence in Metal Roofing across NSW. Marty continues, “the Winner of our first category of Roofing for a Residential Home, value < $50,000 is …….. Metal Masters Home Improvement, for their work on a Collaroy Plateau Home.

The Home built by Revolution Building is built high on the hill and has commanding views over the beach at Collaroy, and Long Reef Point. A lifelong dream for the Homeowners, the home was architecturally designed and has multiple low-pitched roof sections. Proprietor of Metal Masters, Shaun Clancy, who was understandably very excited with the win said “the roof design incorporated a number of skylights, box gutters, wall cladding and an extensive amount of flashing work. Judges commented the level of detail and considerable care that went into the installation really caught their attention, and ultimately resulted in a unanimous vote for category winner.

The MRCAA has hosted this event for a long time and in recent years has nurtured the Residential categories with “entries now seeing record numbers and remarkable levels of quality” said President Manny Tabone. “The passion for perfection amongst the contractors is something our industry can be very proud of”.

The Metal Masters entries also included a massive Heritage themed home at Richmond consisting of 1700m2 of galvanized Corrugated roofing at a 30 degree pitch. Built by local Kenthurst Builder; Jakin Homes, this home built on the banks of the Hawkesbury River is a magnificent home. We entered this home in the $100,000 plus category explained “Mr Clancy, and we were equally proud to be 3rd place for this home, given the quality of the entries submitted.

“These Awards hosted annually are very important for us, but at the same time very humbling when being recognized as the highest accolade our industry affords. Just as important is the passion and pride we take in our work, and that all the guys that work for me can be extremely proud of what they have achieved” said Mr Clancy.
