At About Roofing Supplies between our four branches and our website, we receive and deliver literally tens of thousands of tons of roofing materials every year - in fact we estimate that on an average day we deliver over 200 tons of roof tiles alone!
In this, the first of the special interviews that we will be sharing to celebrate our 20th year in business, we have spent some time with Mark Simmonds, who is the Branch Manager at our Dorking branch.
We opened our doors to our Esher branch for the first time in February 1999 - 3 more branches, thousands of customers and tens of thousands of deliveries later we are celebrating our 20th anniversary.
Tom joined us 3 years ago, fresh out of college, initially to start work in the yard. His likeable personality quickly shone through and it wasn’t long before he moved into a sales position at our Redhill Branch. At About Roofing Supplies, we encourage career progression and personal development and take great pride in allowing our team members to move into positions which build on their skills and showcase their strengths. Tom is a great example of this.
As a relatively new addition to the team, Morgan joined About Roofing last June just after completing his A-levels. Morgan, who is currently working within the sales team, will be eventually taken on formally as a member of the Redhill Sales Team. Discover Morgan's journey to About Roofing Supplies

As a dedicated employee, Woody’s career with us has spanned the last 10 years, making him an expert across all About Roofing Supplies branches and services. Beginning his 10 year career in our Esher branch, Woody has worked on the sales teams in our East Grinstead and Dorking branches and is currently a key member of the Sales team at our Redhill branch where he is able to put his wide experience to excellent use.
Jason has been a dedicated employee at About Roofing Supplies for nearly 15 years. Initially, Jason started working in deliveries where he was responsible for driving a small van. His excellent driving skills and outgoing personality made him very popular with our customers. To further Jason’s career, we invested in HGV and crane training, which resulted in him delivering many hundreds of tons of roofing materials across the country, for over a decade!
Customers who are familiar with our company and staff will quickly recognise our long-standing and highly valued team member, Graham Chappell. Graham’s commitment to About Roofing Supplies has spanned the last 14 years, where he originally started out on the Trade Counter in our Esher branch. After a few years, he was promoted to a Sales Representative role, before becoming Branch Manager of our Redhill branch in 2009. Graham strongly believes “people prefer dealing with people”, so you’ll often find him on the Redhill trade counter and telephones, or working closely with our customers on site.
Felt Shingles are a very popular product for roofing sheds, garden buildings, workshops, garages etc, and we sell literally thousands of packs annually. We were contacted by a customer recently who has purchased some felt shingles from us, but had imaginatively used them for an application that we have never seen previously - and we were so impressed that we just had to share what he had to say, and the fantastic images that he kindly forwarded to us
