We are excited to announce the winner of the first DECRA Metal Roofing Project of the Year! While the competition was fierce, we are proud to recognize the craftsmanship of the contractors who used our products to build this year's award-winning roof.
So, how did we pick the Project of the Year winner? The rules were straightforward: project entries needed to use DECRA Metal Roofing and they had to be finished by the end of 2020. Our internal team of roofing experts then judged each entry based on criteria ranging from design complexity to the project's unique features. We then nailed it down to our top six finalists.
From there, we posted the project images to DECRA’s Facebook page to allow our followers–you–to vote for your favorite project. The job with the most votes is awarded the DECRA Metal Roofing Project of the Year.
We know it wasn't easy picking the winner after seeing each submission's elevated craftsmanship and boundless style. Still, we can't be more thrilled to announce the team behind this year's winning project after seeing the great competition it went against. From all of us at DECRA, thank you for your participation in our program. We can't wait to do this again next year!
Project of the Year: Western Sierra Roofing
The 2020 DECRA Metal Roofing Project of the Year is Western Sierra Roofing. This project features over 250,000 square feet of DECRA Tile in Onyx Blue, a custom color designed for residents near Discovery Bay in California.
DECRA’s Vice President of Marketing Trevor Underwood said, “The magnitude of this project is unparalleled. Not only is the craftsmanship superior, but the residents can rest assured knowing their roof is backed by the strength of stone-coated steel to withstand the elements.”
DECRA Metal Roofing products are designed to bridge the gap between durability and beauty, without the compromises in strength and longevity that come with clay tile. Additionally, our acrylic-based stone-coating formula resists corrosive salted air and other coastal elements, making it a durable and dependable option for Bay Area homes.
“We’re honored to be recognized as the 2020 DECRA Project of the Year. This was one of our larger projects, so it’s nice to see it get the recognition it deserves, as it was no small undertaking,” said Tony Farber from Western Sierra Roofing.
Western Sierra Roofing is a family owned and operated company that specializes in metal roofing, seamless gutters, and solar electric systems. The company services Contra Costa County.
As the winner of the DECRA Metal Roofing Project of the Year, Western Sierra Roofing also received a Swenson Shear Stone Coat Cutter for metal roof applications.
The Swenson Shear Stone Coated Steel Cutter is a multi-purpose tool used to cut through stone-coated roofing of various sizes. It has a dual-edged 34'' high-carbon steel blade used for precision cutting and doesn't require any special training. No matter your skill level, it will always cut straight.
DECRA has been providing ageless beauty as the original stone-coated steel roofing manufacturer since 1957 and Swenson Shear has been providing a more productive way for metal roofing contractors to make precision cuts and bends since 1959. Together, they are a time-tested winning combination for metal roofing contractors.
