Blackpool Roofing is one of the oldest-established roofing contractors in the North-West, having been passed down through three generations of
the Lynden family.
The companys main specialisation is in flat roofing, for which it relies heavily on Norbords Sterling OSB Roofdek.
Weve been using Sterling OSB Roofdek for the past 1 4 or 1 5 years explains Sean. OSB is the perfect choice for decking out a flat roof. Nobody uses plywood any more, and not just because its expensive. Roofdek 8 x 2 tongue-and-grooved panels are better because they have the T&G joints and are self-supporting. That means you dont have to support each edge on a joist.
If its a re-roof, we will first strip the old roof off, then install membranes and insulation before boarding out with Roofdek panels. No adhesive is required in the T&G joints because we then laminate the fibreglass which is bonded directly to the board.
Blackpool Roofings Sterling Roofdek is supplied via the local branch of Jewson. We get through a lot of timber and can require anything from four to eight pallets of Roofdek per month says Sean.
We always use Sterling OSB, although other brands are available. Norbords the biggest manufacturer of OSB in the UK so we know that supplies are going to be reliable and delivery will be prompt.
