Irish self build is B5 beautiful with Cembrit

Cembrit’s B5 corrugated sheeting has recently been chosen as part of a renewable energy self-build project in Saintfield, Northern Ireland, which sees 210 black sheets installed on both the walls and roof of the property.

Self builder, Michael Montgomery, began work on the project in 2012 and completed the site dig out, drainage and foundations by the end of the year. In early 2013, construction re-commenced and currently the upstairs and landscaping is being finalised. Michael required a perfectly scaled corrugated sheet for the roof and walls of this property in the rural Irish countryside. Fibre cement has a number of advantages over metal sheeting, such as it being rust resistant and not noisy in the rain. It is for these reasons, and the profile and depth of corrugation, that he decided to work with Cembrit B5.

Michael Montgomery, Self Builder, said "My requirement for the sheeting was that it would not only suit the surroundings of the property, but also accommodate the installation of solar thermal panels. Cembrit B5 ticked all the boxes. I looked at other suppliers but the sheets were either too small or too large – the great thing about B5 is that it can be fitted by a good joiner.”
