Client: Coast and Country Housing
Type of works: supply and installation of Sandtoft's Cassius clay roof tiles for major refurbishment project.
Sandtoft's Cassius clay roof tile has been selected for the refurbishment of 120 houses on the Ayton Court Estate in the North East of England.
Coast and Country Housing, the largest social landlord in Redcar and Cleveland, is replacing existing concrete tiles with Cassius to give the properties a more aesthetic appearance.
Andy Moss, Buyer at Coast and Country Housing, said: "After reviewing a number of different products, we chose the Cassius as we felt it offered the most authentic slate appearance.
"The A+ rating in the BRE Green Guide made the Cassius a suitable solution as it fitted in perfectly with our environmental strategy.
"We were also impressed by its large format, interlocking design, which makes the tiles very easy to fix. In addition, the Cassius is lighter than concrete tiles, which is ideal for roof refurbishment projects as it reduces the need to change structural design."
Sandtoft has also provided Coast and Country Housing with its unique Roof SPEC® package. This provides a guarantee that the roofs will remain weathertight for 20 years and comply with all relevant building standards and best practices.
"The Roof SPEC guarantee is a major benefit for us," continued Andy. "It provides extra reassurance that the roofs are of the highest quality.
For our tenants, it also minimises the risk of any future disruption caused by maintenance or repair."
Established in 2001, Coast and Country took over the ownership and management of homes from Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council as part of a large-scale stock transfer in July 2002. Coast and Country is a not-for-profit housing company which owns over 10,000 properties in the North East.
