Marley’s JB Western Red Cedar Shingles have been specified for the roofs of 28 new medieval-themed lodges at Warwick Castle. The unique additions to the popular tourist attraction give visitors the chance to experience the medieval age like never before.
Willerby Bespoke designed the lodges, including the Knight’s Lodge; a two-storey mezzanine design, meaning that installation and stitching the roofs together was more complex and had to be completed on site.
With approval from Warwick Castle, Willerby Bespoke specified JB Shingles for the lodges due to the robust finish they deliver, and the reassurance provided by the accreditation to the Certi-Grade quality assurance label, as certified by the Cedar Shingle and Shake Bureau (CSSB). Shingles also require low maintenance and blend into the heritage surroundings, so were deemed an ideal choice.
Phil Parks, lead commercial manager at Willerby Innovations, the parent company of Willerby Bespoke, said: "In commercial projects such as this, the lightweight nature of JB Shingles, together with their ease of installation, play an important role in ensuring we are able to meet the deadlines.”
