80th Birthday Celebrations


Congratulations to our original company director Phil Gilmore, who recently had a full week of celebrations turning 80. 
After more than thirty two years owning Paton Roofing, Phil is still keeping his finger on the pulse of the business and enjoyed his birthday at work!

All of the team at Paton Roofing wish our "Head Honcho" the best and say thank for being a great person to work for.

Our Team on the Roof

Our team is a group of local people who want to provide a service they can be proud of.  

Paton's longest standing employee has worked with us for over 25 years! We also have 4 families that have had fathers and sons working within the company, one of which went into the third generation.

Keeping good Tradesmen in the industry is not easy.  Roofing is not one of the most sought after trades with it being extremely hot work in summer, cold and wet in winter, but our team feel passionate about what they do and doing a good job.   

As in most areas of the construction industry, there are always changing materials and products.  Our staff are all trained in the products we use and we fully advocate in-house training to keep everyone up to date.

Paton's have a wealth of knowledge within our team of Tradesmen, gained from years experience and formal qualifications. Our teams are carefully chosen to ensure qualified staff, senior tradesmen and trainees are appropriately mixed.

We have a good level of NZQA Qualified Tradesmen and six staff members are currently completing their formal roofing qualifications.  

All of our staff have current Site Safe Passports and we ensure our employees are up to date with
Fall Arrest, Elevated Work Platform and First Aid training.
