How can housebuilders benefit from using a full roof system?

Marley news Aug2

In recent years, the security of pitched roofing has come under greater scrutiny, with the revised BS 5534, a proposed new Dry Fix standard and greater focus from warranty providers, like the NHBC, on roof fixing methods.

As well as the need to comply with increasingly stringent roofing standards, housebuilders are also facing their own time, cost and skills challenges, which means roofs not only need to be high quality, but also quick and easy to fix to BS 5534 requirements. 

Choosing or specifying a comprehensive roof system from one manufacturer can help to reduce this performance gap, enabling housebuilders to take more control of the specification and minimising the risk of unmonitored product choice or substitution further down the line.  A Marley Eternit roof system covers everything from the underlays through to the fittings and can also offer the benefit of a 15 year guarantee, which is particularly attractive when it comes to reducing installation liability and cost of repair work, and also where the roof system covers more elements.
