Russell Roof Tiles has been instrumental in providing re-roofing expertise to one of Wales’ largest housing providers, as part of its significant improvement programme.
Wales & West Housing, which manages 12,000 high quality, affordable homes across Wales, manages a vast cyclical improvement programme investing continuously in its existing homes.
Having worked closely with Wales & West Housing for more than three years, Russell Roof Tiles has provided re-roofing expertise and pitched roofing solutions on a number of its social housing projects, including most recently at Butt Lee Court in Barry, South Wales.
The housing provider required five of its flats at Butt Lee Court to be re-roofed and were looking for a pitched roofing solution that provided a robust replacement for existing roofs and that would be long-lasting under adverse weather conditions.
Russell Roof Tiles’ Grampian tiles were specified as a result due to its cost effective and sustainable attributes. As a standard flat interlocking roof tile, the product combines the traditional yet stylish appearance of slate or clay, with the security of an interlocking design and the economy of concrete.
Concrete roof tiles are also a long life, durable product and require minimal maintenance once installed – a feature which means lower maintenance and repair costs.
Russell Roof Tiles also specified its Dry Fix solutions for the re-roofing scheme. Specifying both roofing tiles and plastic accessories from one manufacturer ensures that the products are designed to work together to create a more reliable and effective roofing fixing solution.
James Pendleton, Regional Sales Director at Russell Roof Tiles said: “Our high-quality products and technical expertise have ensured that Wales & West Housing and its residents benefit from long-lasting pitched roofing products for a number of years.
“We were also able to provide our Russ Spec guarantee to ensure a long-lasting solution. This is our 15-year guarantee when using Russell’s whole roof solutions, where the roof has been installed in accordance with information provided. We look forward to working with Wales & West Housing again.”
Russell Roof Tiles is a pioneering independent roof tile manufacturer, providing pitched roofing solutions for leading UK house builders and high-profile social housing projects, where sustainability and eco-credentials are of the utmost priority.
