A luxurious housing development by AJC Homes Scotland in one of the most exposed parts of the UK has used Edgemere slate effect interlocking tiles and a full dry fix system from Marley Eternit, to meet the demands of extreme weather and planning requirements.
Situated in the picturesque village of Aboyne in Aberdeenshire, planners required the Castle Park development of 26 family homes to have a slate aesthetic for the roofs. With high internal and external specifications, AJC Homes was able to deliver a contemporary slate look at a much lower cost with the use of the Edgemere interlocking tiles. The Edgemere tiles were fitted by Marley Contract Services and C Hurl Roofing on all of the three, four and five bedroom homes on the current phase of the ongoing Castle Park development, with the next phase about to start.
Neil Paterson, director at AJC Homes Scotland, explains: “Castle Park is a luxurious development built with materials such as granite and cedar to give the houses a natural appearance, blending in with the surrounding countryside. Planning dictated that the roofs must have a slate aesthetic but we chose to use the Edgemere interlocking tiles to give the sleek slate look in a more cost effective way and the planners were very happy with the samples Marley Eternit provided".
