B7 sheets provide fire resistant roof to holiday lodge

Report

Cembrit B7 fibre corrugated sheets have been specified and installed to prevent leaks and weather damage and provided a fire-resistant roof top to a holiday lodge in North Yorkshire.

Located just three miles from the market town of Thirsk, Foxhills Hideaways is a holiday retreat that features four Scandinavian style lodges in a beautiful setting on the western edge of the North York Moors National Park. Spread out amongst the fir trees, the lodges include two bedrooms, a bathroom, an open plan living space with lounge, dining area and kitchen, and an outdoor veranda and BBQ area. Since the lodges were built over 35 years ago, one cabin has had to be rebuilt following a fire, and the roofs have become damaged and experienced leaks. When the owner was looking for a new roof material for one of the lodges that would match the existing profiles of the others, they turned to Cembrit.   

Supplied via David Tompkins Ltd, Bernard Mitchell Roofing installed blue/black coloured B7 corrugated sheets that have provided a finish that blends in well with the setting and the surrounding lodges.

The B7 corrugated sheet is the perfect solution for cladding or repairing single-story buildings, including stables and garages. B7 sheets do not require underlays and is used on buildings with a minimum of 14 ° roof pitch. The fibre cement sheets is available in five different colours — blue/black, anthracite, mocha, maroon and brick red —and are supplied with corner cut outs and screw holes, as well as full edge and without holes.
