Wayman Roofing is the result of three brothers; John, Paul and Phil Wayman — triplets — mastering their self-taught craft over the years before entering into business together in the late 70’s. Over thirty years of blood, sweat and a family-first mentality have gone into making Wayman Roofing what it is today.
WAYMAN ROOFING LTD.
Moving along a generation and today, Wayman Roofing is in the more than capable hands of the Wayman triplet’s own sons; Zac, Dave, Tim and Marcel. Although they officially began buying into the business four years ago, they have all been involved in one way or another throughout the years.
With a clear focus on family, Wayman Roofing put the utmost care and quality into everything they do. Being involved in a number of high profile roofing projects over the years, Wayman Roofing continue to service Canterbury and most of the South Island, all the time ensuring they are at the forefront of their industry.
Although there has been some prosperity, especially following the need for roofing after the Christchurch earthquakes, Wayman Roofing have had their fair share of ups and downs over the years.
In 2013, they received a major blow when one of their main clients Mainzeal, a major construction contractor at the time, went into receivership. This put a major strain on the business.
When speaking of what has kept them afloat for over thirty years of business, Zac explains that it comes down to their reputation of reliability, experience and a down-to-earth attitude. “Although Christchurch is New Zealand’s third largest city by population, it is still a relatively small market. The key here is to have a good reputation, then maintain it”.
It is this that has proved to be key to their relationship with Leech & Partners as well. Despite only being Wayman Roofing’s accountants for just over a year, Zac explains that it is Leech & Partners’ professionalism and proactivity that sets them apart from the rest, and in his mind, no one embodies this more than their accountant, Chris Smith, and his team.
