Specifier: Access Builders of Manchester
Type of works: supply of TLX Gold multi-foil.
Access Builders of Manchester chose TLX Gold for the re-roof of a 1930s semi-detached house and extension, to meet Building Regulations' rule that where 25% or more of a roof is being renovated, the thermal performance must be upgraded. The project was a complex roof and involved multiple roof lines and gulleys and it was important that the roof line wasn't altered.
TLX Gold is a unique two-in-one multi-foil and roofing membrane which delivers a less intrusive energy improvement. It is installed in the same way as standard roofing tile underlay and in this instance was specified to ensure the roofing line of property didnt alter.
- The project took only one day per side to strip and re-roof
- The thermal performance of the property was improved at same time
- TLX Gold overcame the technical and structural problems of raising the roofline and met the 15 year payback rule.
Jim Isaacs, Owner, Access Builders Ltd said: "TLX Gold is a great product for installers and as part of the work we deliver we are now able to offer the insulation upgrade required when re-roofing. This kind of installation would previously have been impossible without raising the roofing line. We will be using this product again,
