JB Shingles top off luxury Treehouses at Center Parcs

Luxury Treehouses at Center Parcs, Elveden Forest in Suffolk have welcomed their first guests following completion using JB Western Red Cedar Shingles from leading roof systems manufacturer Marley.

The four treehouses, which contain luxury features such as TV room and games den, en-suite bathrooms and hot tubs, have been designed to blend in seamlessly with the woodland surroundings. JB Blue label Shingles were specified for their ability to provide a high quality long-life solution with low maintenance, which fit perfectly with the natural environment.

Furthermore, the JB Cedar Shingles specified were also treated with JB FRT Exterior, which gives them a fire classification to BS 476-3, the same as a clay tile, for added reassurance and the protection of the visitors. In total, 564 bundles of JB Shingles were needed for the project and sub-contractor Lodge Roofing were appointed to undertake the installation.

In addition to JB Cedar Shingles, Lodge Roofing also used ShingleFix, which uses specially designed stainless steel staples to fix the shingles instead of using the traditional nail, further reducing the installation time of the project- by up to 50% on larger builds.

Billy Sweeney, general manager at Lodge Roofing, says: "For projects such as this, JB Shingles are perfect. For us, they are the best name in the trade and we never have any problems with them. As a result, we’ve used them for many years".
