Coatbridge roofer in semi-finals of contest to find Britain’s top tradesperson

A Coatbridge roof tiler has reached the semi-finals of a competition to find Britain’s top tradesperson.

Darren McGhee, of DMG Roofing, has made it to the latter stages of the annual contest run by Screwfix, which attracted more than 1000 entrants.

He will now be interviewed about his business, trade skills, customer service and ambitions in a bid to earn one of the 10 places at next month’s final in Farnborough.

Darren said: “I’m deeply motivated in training up apprentices and I’ve set up a care package that aims to combat the bad reputation other rogue traders bring.

“Seeing and hearing stories of customers being scammed was heartbreaking so I created MyRoofCare, a type of cover that gives homeowners added protection, making life difficult for rogue roofers.

“Making it this far in the competition is a massive achievement.”

The chosen finalists will then face a panel of industry experts, with the winner collecting £10,000 worth of tools, £5000 of technology and £5000 for future training.

Caroline Welsh of Screwfix said: “The award for Britain’s top tradesperson is given to the very best in the business, who demonstrate how they excel and are investing in the future of the industry.

“We’re looking for phenomenal tradespeople who go that extra mile for their customers and ensure that every job is completed to perfection and I would like to wish Darren the best of luck in the semi-final.”
