Dry Fix Valleys ‘best’ for complex job at care home

A high quality roofing solutions company has chosen Hambleside Danelaw’s Dry Fix mortarless GRP Valley Trough for a complicated roof on a Buckinghamshire care home.

Malone Roofing went for the sustainable and quality solution offered by the British roofing products manufacturer when working in partnership with Castleoak on Lent Rise House, a new 60-bed care home in Burnham that forms part of Buckinghamshire County Council’s major Project Care reprovisioning programme.

Alan Stagg, contract manager at Malone Roofing, said:

“The new care home has a complicated roof by industry standards so we needed roofing and ventilation products that were ideal for a complex job. We have used Hambleside Danelaw’s Dry Fix valley troughs before and the GRP material is the best for this type of work, especially as it offers a high performance and mortarless solution.”

Hambleside Danelaw’s Dry Fix mortarless GRP Valley Trough creates close-cut appearance on new build and refurbishment. Available in standard lead grey colour, the unique product cuts fixing time by up to 50%.

GRP valley troughs provide the following advantages over lead products:

• up to half the cost of traditional lead installation
• semi-skilled fitting procedure
• pre-formed profiles are light in weight and easy to handle
• 30 year guarantee
• BBA approved, complies with NFRC technical Bulletin 28
• does not streak or stain slates or tiles
• can be safely used with other products to recycle rainwater
• no value to the thief.

Other products include GRP Dry Verges, Dry Soakers, Dry Fix Bonding Gutters and RollOut Ridge and Hip Systems. Full technical support is provided.
