Swish black half-round gutters and round downpipes are being supplied alongside white fascias and soffits through local stockist, Quay Plastics to contractor and installer, Newlife Windows.
Swish Building Products will be supplying the North Yorkshire-based housing association with components from its sustainable rainwater range.
Ian Pollitt, quantity surveyor for Broadacres Housing Association: Historically these [roofline and rainwater] components have been on a 30 year replacement programme however this may be reviewed going forward due to the increased life expectancy of new generation PVC-U products. We also pick up prospective replacement jobs following stock condition surveys carried out by our Technical Services team. In most instances, the new roofline and rainwater systems are replacing existing PVC products but on this year’s replacement programme there are 13 properties with timber fascias.
Forming part of an annual replacement programme, 191 properties were completed under phase one; a further 161 will be upgraded during phase two which began in October and will continue into the New Year.
Fascias and soffits are replaced on all elevations of the properties while rainwater goods are only replaced if required.
Broadacres, established in 1993, provides a comprehensive range of services to approximately 5,600 homes in North Yorkshire.
