Each year the prizes get bigger and better, with this year’s winner receiving the following.
- Your choice of the Swenson Shear Stone Cutter ($895 value) or Swenson Shear Base and Ridge Bender ($3,995 value): The Stone Coat Cutter is designed for use on a multitude of metal roof applications from stone coated metal shake and shingles, to 14 gauge stainless flat sheets. The Stone Coat Cutter is equipped with a 34-inch blade that is made of long-lasting, high carbon steel. This go-to tool is safe, efficient and will give you a clean cut every time. The Base and Ridge Bender is a combination tool used for bending stone coated steel to control water from blowing into the metal roof system.

The ridge bender is used anywhere on the panels where there’s a short course in the field, head wall and ridge.
- Three-month R-CLUB membership ($150 value) from RoofersCoffeeShop. Your membership gets you an interactive directory, media opportunities, a digital toolkit and more.

What If I Don’t Install DECRA Metal Roofing?
While all entries must use DECRA products to be considered for the Project of the Year, it’s easy to start installing DECRA Metal Roofing!
The demand for metal roofing has doubled in recent years, making it the second most popular material for residential homes. By adding DECRA products to your service offerings, you’ll tap into a lucrative market of homeowners who aren’t willing to sacrifice on style or strength. Plus, most homeowners interested in metal roofing value durability and longevity over trying to find the cheapest option.
