Tell us about your family business (What you do, how you started, who’s involved etc)
We’re roofers. We’re a family run business.  Rooftec makes peoples’ homes safe, secure and the havens that they crave. I’m Mark Cattanach and Rooftec is run by me and my wife, Nicola and over the last nine years, we’ve quickly established a reputation as one of the very best roofing contractors in Scotland. The business started in 2008, but roofing’s been in our blood for as long as we can remember.

Roofing was what I did immediately after leaving school, taking on an apprenticeship, and over the last 27 years, I’ve honed his skills whilst working for a variety of different roofing businesses. But along the way, something changed.  I had had enough of the ‘cowboy’ nature of some roofers, and I could see the ‘holes in the bucket’ where the customer was being let down. My drive to give customers what they truly deserved resulted in me setting up on my own, and with Nicola’s background in administration, the two of us were ideally positioned to launch a new roofing business. The rest is history.

What’s your proudest moment/biggest achievement as a family business?
We have two proudest moments, the first is moving out of the house into our first office, this was amazing and gave us family time back. The second was winning Forth Valley Chamber of Commerce “Excellence in Customer Service Award 2016”. The full team attended this event and the look on the faces said it all, we couldn’t do it without them.

What do you love about being a family business?
What we love most about being a family business is always knowing if one of us is having a bad day someone has got your back. It has been fantastic for our kids Robbie, Eve and Lexi to grow up seeing how hard work pays off, they have learned loads of skills from being in the office and one day they may even join us in the business.
