    I went into Roofing straight from school doing 3 layer felt & asphalt with the biggest job I worked on being the cargo bay at Heathrow Airport. I moved into the office side of the business in 1999 where I worked myself up to Branch Manager for my previous employer. I have been at Contour Roofing for 6 years now and enjoy the banter & camaraderie we all have while still getting the job done which for me is the sign of a good team.

    Outside of Roofing I have my 2 daughters & son who make me proud every day while for hobbies I play golf and support Liverpool FC which I have done since I was 6 years old. I am the reigning champion of Contour’s fantasy football league although contrary to many of my colleague’s comments, I don’t actually spend a lot of time on it!

    I’m always listening to music with The Kinks, David Bowie, Oasis & The Beatles being amongst my favourites. I regularly go to live gigs with my girlfriend while we also enjoy eating out & visiting the cinema, theatre & comedy shows.

    Senior Contract Manager Flat Roofing

    My father was a roofer so for me I think it was inevitable that id become one. I started roofing when I was 20 years old where I spent 7 years on the tools laying both built up felt and single ply systems, my preferred being Sarnafil, At 27 years old I joined Contour Roofing in a more office based role which has now developed into managing the day to day running the flat roofing side of business.

    In my own time I enjoy watching football and used to play reasonable standard for Cambridge City FC, I currently play for Nemwmarket Town FC.

    I have spent most of my working life in the roofing industry where I started training as a tiler at the age of 18.

For the best part of 15 years I sub contracted from 2 large local firms & also employed & trained several young labourers up to be tilers. In 1999 I hung up my tools & became a Contracts Manager for a national roof tiling company, where I spent just over 16 years before joining Contour Roofing as Senior Contracts Manager in November 2015. I’m a keen golfer, playing as often as I’m allowed(!). I enjoy holidays to sunny destinations where I spend the majority of the time laying in the sun relaxing. I also enjoy going to concerts & festivals.

    Joe McCanna

    Contracts Manager Flat Roofing

    I started working with Contour Roofing in 2008 after a few years working within the building trade on other projects. I remember my first 10 days were just purely health and safety training before I was allowed to step foot on site, at one point I did wonder what I was getting myself in to. With me now booking training for guys in the position I was once in I feel I have the experience to explain why this is so important and will stand them in good stead for the future. I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to progress through the company and will hopefully continue to do so.

  • Tom, Everett

    Tom Everett

    Senior Estimator

    I started my working life after studying Engineering at college. I had a number of different jobs within in the construction industry including Air conditioning installation, Partitioner and Telecoms engineer which I did for nearly 10 years working all over the UK. The last project I worked on was Terminal 5 at Heathrow airport. Due to working away from home and varied shift patterns I decided it was time for a change.

    I began working at Contour Roofing in the summer of 2007 as a trainee estimator. My role within the company is predominately focused on the logging incoming enquiries, pricing the tender, negotiating  and securing contracts which can be anything from small house extensions to entire sites of houses and apartment blocks.

    I enjoy problem solving and the different day to day challenges I am faced with. I also enjoy working with the network of suppliers and builders we work with, I always try to keep good communication in order to  build relationships as I think this is key to successful business.

    In my spare time I enjoy cooking, reading, cycling, going to the gym, going for walks, playing guitar and above all spending time with my family. I also like to travel as much as I can.

    I left Raytheon to start a family of which I now have a girl of 19 and a boy of 14, I still continued to work in various places as and when I could.

    I left there and joined Contour Roofing (Essex) Ltd nearly 7 years ago in August 2009 and took over there Accounts.
