Northern exposure for Marley Contract Sevices

Marley Contract Services has completed yet another award winning roofing project on ten luxury properties in the Cults area of Aberdeen.

The standard of work carried out by Marley Contract Services, where houses are priced up to £1.175m, resulted in the company winning the 2013 NFRC (National Federation of Roofing Contractors) Scottish Contractor of the Year Awards.

This northerly part of the UK, where wind driven rain can be an issue if there is poor quality of workmanship on site, lead to developer CALA Homes appointing Marley Contract Services because it knew the company had the specialist in-house skills to complete work to the required standards.

A key requirement set by the developer was that the roof should complement the light grey stone exterior of the properties. Marley Contract Services used Edgemere tiles with a single-lap flat interlocking design in smooth grey to achieve this, which helped the development sit harmoniously in its picturesque surroundings.

The work on site for Marley Contract Services was far from straightforward with a requirement for a series of hipped dormer windows, along with a combination of large hipped and gable roofs.

This required accurate installation of the underlying sub-structure, trimming of tiles and completion of a number of intricate valleys, flashings and rainwater systems along with a dry fix system, RidgeFast.

Cala Homes’ project manager Raymond Will, said: “These properties are built to a very high standard and Marley Contract Services deserves the recognition it gained in the NFRC roofing awards. It is testament to the skills and experience of their in-house team who worked on this development.”
