Our story begins back in 2007 with two lads called Dave and Ruffy. After missing out on acquiring RoofingSmiths in Queenstown they formed their own business (About Roofing) and joined forces with Calder Stewart to supply their roofing material. Of course, as we all know the following year is when the GFC hit which made business very challenging.
Throughout those tough years their focus remained the same, to provide quality roofs for families and businesses. In 2012 they met their ‘lady in shining armour’ Alison, who swooped in, helped the lads out and hasn’t left.
As the local population grew, so too did the business and in 2013 Dave, Ruffy and Alison joined the RoofingSmiths team then added on a cladding arm (Architectural Cladding) in 2015.
Business grew to a point where Roofing Hub Limited was incorporated in March 2017 so that all the businesses could be under one roof.
Throughout the growth of the company Dave, Ruffy and Alison always maintained a focus on training as they realised the importance of the next generation of roofers not only being taught the skills but also to be nurtured through their careers.
In late of 2022, Roofing Hub was sold to Quentin Ross, who is from a 4th Generation roofing family. Nothing has changed for Dave and Ruffy, while Alison saw it as a good opportunity to move from Wanaka with her family to the warmth of Northland.
Always up for a challenge. One great characteristic of the Roofing Hub team is the way they relish in problem-solving or creating anything from a quirky small shed to an architecturally designed space which is more like a piece of art than a building.
Since the beginning, Dave, Ruffy and Alison have always stuck to their core values of honesty, pride and hard graft which has earned them respect from their staff, customers and suppliers. Their values match Quentin’s with the goals of provide the best job we can do, training the next generation of roofers and provide an excellence service with honesty, pride, and respect in a friendly and fun team.
