Solarwise is a building and roofing company based in Manningtree that became a dream turned reality for husband and wife duo Shayne and Sade. 

Shayne had previously worked in the building and roofing sector over over 20 years and, after marrying Sade in 2018, they decided to started their own company together, which, according to Shayne, is ‘one of the best things’ he’s ever done.
