Cembrit C5 the alternative to asbestos roofs

Cembrit C5 the alternative to asbestos roofs

Cembrit B5 modern fibre cement corrugated sheets have been used to transform a 60 year old village hall and improve the roof’s performance through its superior water shedding capacity when compared with the old 3" profile.

Located at the heart of the Gorsgoch, the village hall is the main community building in the area and provides the local community with a common meeting place. After being closed for a number of years, the village hall required a refurbishment.

In particular, the narrow asbestos cement corrugated sheet needed to be replaced with a durable and attractive looking roof. Local contractor, Jeff Thomas worked on this project, and Huw Davies from Pensaer HD Architect specified Cembrit’s B5 corrugated sheet.

Natural grey coated B5 corrugated sheets have provided a spectacular finish that blends in well with the countryside setting. The contractor installed a Plain Wing Angle Ridge to provide sufficient ventilation.

Huw Davies from Pensaer HD Architect said "the durable and low maintenance credentials of Cembrit’s B5 corrugated sheet made it ideal for use on this project."
