The renowned RoofGuard® Maintenance System, developed by Edwards & Hardy Roofing, has been used to clean and maintain domestic and commercial roofs throughout New Zealand since 1959.

As we grew we were often asked to repair and replace roofs and we have developed close and long standing partnership relationships with a number of respected New Zealand roofing manufacturers and suppliers.

The Edwards & Hardy business now employs over 150 people across 8 Branch’s. This team is supported by a similar number of contractors and we are now New Zealand’s largest roof maintenance and re-roof company, providing nationwide support in the cleaning, repair & maintenance, re-coating and re-roofing of a wide range of residential, commercial and institutional longrun, metal tile and concrete tile roofs.

We also offer a number of support services including gutter cleaning and installation, exterior wall and pathway cleaning, brick and block sealing and spider control. This adds up to a wide range of services, and we are helping over 3,000 customers per month to manage or resolve an issue with their roof or property.

Edwards & Hardy History Images


Edwards & Hardy Roofing was founded in 1959 by Dick Edwards and Des Hardy when they realised there was a growing need for the cleaning and maintenance of tiled roofs in their home city of Christchurch.

This successful partnership, which pioneered the cleaning, siliconing and resurfacing of roofs, eventually grew into a nationwide company.

Their motto: "To provide the best possible service, to economically maintain existing roofs, at the best possible price, with satisfaction guaranteed", still stands today, across the company’s roof cleaning, maintenance and reroofing services, as well as its growing range of related property maintenance services.

Just as importantly, Edwards & Hardy Roofing remains a family owned business that is personally committed to supporting New Zealanders in maintaining their properties.

Health and Safety

Edwards & Hardy Roofing is committed to maintaining a healthy, and safe working environment, for its employees and customers.

We achieve this through full compliance to our responsibilities under the Health & Safety Act. In doing this we recognise that Health & Safety is everyone’s business, and that we all have a shared commitment to avoiding accidents and incidents that may cause personal injury, property damage or loss of any kind. To this end Edwards & Hardy now meets the Tertiary Level Requirements of ACC’s Workplace Safety Management Practices, which is a bi-annually audited Health & Safety program.

We also pride ourselves on our best practice work standards, which are carried out in accordance with Work Safe New Zealand and Resource Management Act Guidelines. All of our Operators are fully trained and certified to work at heights, and the bio-degradable solution used to treat your roof is either neutralised or diverted, to give you peace of mind that no pollutants will enter our storm water system from your property.
