New award for excellence announced 

Coverland, in collaboration with the South African Institute of Architects (SAIA), recently announced the Coverland Roof Tile Award for Excellence. It is a new sub-category award that forms part of the 2023/2024 Corobrik SAIA Award of Merit and Awards for Excellence in partnership with Coverland. 

Industry first 

The award aims to reward projects that show exceptional application of concrete roof tiles in aspects such as aesthetics and creativity. This is an industry first and an exciting opportunity for Coverland to raise the image of concrete roof tiles as a durable roofing solution. It is evidence of the company living its purpose of “Building new horizons”. 


As the leading concrete roof tile manufacturer in South Africa, Coverland wanted to raise awareness of the versatility of concrete roof tiles with architects. What better way to do this than with a prestigious award?” says Willem Grove, marketing manager at Coverland.

Entries are open to all concrete roof tile manufacturers and not exclusively to Coverland roof tiles.
