Awards and honors for one of Washington’s oldest roofing contractors

Feb 7, 2013 (Hyattsville, MD) – Nationally recognized restorer Wagner Roofing was honored today by the National Roofing Contractors Association with two Gold Circle Awards, the industry’s highest honor, as well as the Gold Circle Platinum Award for the most superior overall project. The Gold Circle Awards are a national competition to recognize NRCA members for their outstanding contributions to the roofing industry. Wagner Roofing’s Gold Circle Awards came in the categories of workmanship and innovative solutions for the company’s work on Mahan Hall and its distinctive clock tower at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.

It took Wagner Roofing 3,500 man hours of sheet metal fabrication in its shop and 14,000 on- site man hours to complete the restoration of Mahan Hall. “We are so excited that the NRCA recognized the painstaking effort that went into this project,” said Wagner Roofing President Chuck Wagner. “Restoring the thirteen 6×8 foot copper dormers – as well as ensuring that everything we did adhered to historical standards – made this perhaps the most challenging job I’ve worked on in my 47 years of roofing.”

The Gold Circle Awards are not the only honor Wagner Roofing has received recently. The company’s restoration of the 100-year-old copper roof of the historic Capitol Hill 7th Day Adventist Church, just blocks from the Capitol Building, was featured in the most recent edition of Professional Roofing magazine. The magazine pointed out how diligently Wagner Roofing went about the restoration, including taking exacting measurements of the finials and cornice so they could be reproduced to their original design.

“I am delighted that a local roofer like us would be honored both by the national association as well as by the leading roofing publication in the country at almost the exact same time,” said Chuck Wagner. The craftsmen, superintendent and project manager worked as a very successful team on both projects.

Wagner Roofing is one of the leading roof restoration companies in the Washington, DC area and will celebrate its 100th anniversary next year. It specializes in historic restorations, churches, government buildings, and residential work. Founded by Otto Wagner in 1914, the company is currently run by his grandson, Chuck Wagner. Wagner Roofing employs 50 craftsmen and has its own extensive metal shop which enables it to provide slate, copper, tile and architectural metal work on any size job.
