Product Choice Helps Eliminate Cause for Complaint

CHOICE OF ROOFING components is helping one contractor eliminate cause for complaint.

Kent roofing contractor, Russells of Headcorn now uses Danelaw LR120 vapour permeable membrane and dry fix roof ventilation at valleys, ridge and eaves as standard, wherever possible, for enhanced employee and customer satisfaction.

“The roofers are quick to feed back to us how they find products on site. LR120 is a product they don’t moan about. If they aren’t complaining, we’ve got it right!,” elaborates estimator, Mark Bottle.

“We work with most of the major housebuilders, and they have all been happy with its use too, in conjunction with Danelaw dry fix ventilation solutions at eaves and ridge. It makes their life easy: the dry fix option gives them a 10-year guarantee, no maintenance and eliminates the risks of remedials inherent with muck work. For us, the Danelaw products give great value for money, and have been problem free to install.”
