This dwelling in Falkirk town centre required a full roof overhaul of the existing Rosemary Tiled roof.
As an alternative to replacing the roof with Rosemary tiles we recommended the Redland Duo Plain Tiles. The reason being this is an excellent aesthetic equivalent to replacing Rosemary tiles like for like and allows the property to keep the original look. These tiles are larger and therefor less are required, which in turn requires less battens and fixings, reducing the overall material and labour costs. Various samples were provided to our lovely client for a choice of colour.
The roof was reinstated with a full Redland specification using the Redland Duo Plain Tile in Flame colour. The tiles were fitted onto graded tile battens and every tile nailed and clipped to meet the BS5534 standards. The roof wascompleted with a Redland Dry Hip and Ridge system, which are mechanically fitted. This avoids the continual repointing of cement as part of a maintenance program and is more secure against wind uplift.
