Works started on a new housing development last June on part of the old Beach Coach Station in the centre of Great Yarmouth. The newly built Royal Britannia Crescent consists of nineteen houses with gardens and parking and is the first initiative from the Norfolk Development Company (NDC). Hambleside Danelaw’s original Dry Fix mortarless GRP Valley Trough has once again been selected as the best product for the complicated crescent shaped roof.
The crescent shape of the houses is a very shallow curve; therefore the number of useable roof coverings was limited. Shallow hips on the outside of the crescent would mean that the use of hip tiles would be unsightly and unreliable and on the inside of the crescent, open bedded valleys would be inconsistent with the overall design.
Norfolk based roofing contractors; Aspect Roofing chose our Dry Fix Valley Trough for low profile tiles for both the hip and valley detail due to their close-cut appearance on this new build project and the fact that they cut fixing time by up to 50%. Paul Elliston, General Manager at Aspect commented, “The proposition was for the product to be aesthetically pleasing and practical. Hambleside Danelaw’s Dry Fix Valley Troughs fulfil both of these elements at the same time as being easy to install and they provide good cover.”
The developer was extremely happy with the principle and the countless advantages that go alongside using this leading Dry Fix brand.
