FORTICRETE'S Hardrow Slates Provides The Ideal Finish For David Wilson Homes

Highly durable Hardrow Slates from Forticrete, one of the UK's leading manufacturers of specialist roofing products, has been specified by David Wilson Homes to compliment the existing natural stone vernacular of its new development in Moorbrook Mills, Holmfirth.

As most of the buildings in the surrounding area of the development feature natural stone with stone slate roofs, the local planning authority had specific planning requirements that needed to be met to ensure that any materials specified would blend seamlessly with the existing properties at the site, as well as the surrounding environment.

After a number of alternative products failed to meet the requirements, Forticrete's Hardrow Slates in Twilight were handpicked by David Wilson Homes to provide both a cost effective and aesthetically pleasing solution.

Erica Bell of David Wilson Homes commented: "We considered a number of alternatives for use on this sensitive site, but Forticrete's Hardrow Slate stood out head and shoulders above the rest; it offers the same architectural properties as natural slate, with an aesthetically pleasing finish at a fraction of the cost, providing us with the ideal solution.

"As well as being cheaper than natural slate, Hardrow is also available in a range of natural stone shades. This meant that we were able to carefully select the perfect weathered blend which would be best suited to compliment the developments' surrounding environment. The natural finish provided by the slate is remarkable."

Suitable for use in regions where a natural stone slate appearance is required, Forticrete's Hardrow roof slates are manufactured with a slight variation in dimensional tolerance, adding to the product's character when laid.
The range, which is extremely durable and mellows with age, can be laid in either random widths or diminishing courses for an authentic traditional appearance.

The slates are available in a variety of sizes, for both roofing and vertical cladding. The sizes range from 457mm x 305mm (min. pitch 25o), right up to the imposing 610mm x 457mm which can be laid confidently at pitches as low as 17.5o, creating a bold appearance. The colour of Hardrow Slates will change with natural weathering, but the integrity of the tile carries a 30-year guarantee from date of supply.
