Hambleside Danelaw: Durable Solutions for Pitched Roofing

  • 12 Jan 2023

Winter can be a challenging time for any household, particularly with the current cost of living increases. In addition to this, cold weather puts a great deal of strain on your home, with issues arising from condensation, poor insulation, and leaking roofs coming to the fore. Rain, snow, and high wind can damage your roof – with all three typically occurring in the first few months of the year, Hambleside Danelaw believe it is important to consider how to protect your home…


Take into account the service life of the pitched roof during the development stage. There are numerous options which can enhance the service life of the roof, whether the project is new build or refurbishment.

One thing to bear in mind is dry fix GRP components can have a superior service life compared to traditionally used roofing materials, and have no value to a prospective thief, unlike lead flashing applications.

Some traditional pitched roofing products have also shown to be less reliable over a longer duration. Failing mortar, for example, has been common for many years.

It is also important to ensure all products comply with applicable regulations and standards, such as BS 5250 and BS 8612.

Hambleside Danelaw’s Range of Products

Hambleside Danelaw has always been a pioneer in the field of roofing products, beginning with its valley trough which celebrated its 25th anniversary last year.

The last few years have seen a variety of new products manufactured by Hambleside Danelaw in its state-of-the-art facility in Northamptonshire, such as the MidVerg20® (a dry fix interlocking verge system) and the TV10/11 (a tile vent with an industry leading airflow area of 8500mm² – pictured above). Long service life and quality are of the utmost importance when designing new additions to the Danelaw family.

Hambleside Danelaw GRP products, including valley troughs and continuous soakers, come with a 30-year service life guarantee – meaning roofers and homeowners alike can feel secure in the protection these products offer.

Hambleside Danelaw’s range of individual soakers, such as the MDS or SRRS, are manufactured from polypropylene, have a 20-year guarantee, and create no harmful run off into water courses, making them suitable for water harvesting systems. They are also manufactured from up to 50% recycled PPC if black in colour, or 100% recycled PPC if grey.

Ensuring adequate ventilation is a vital part of any roof space, and Hambleside Danelaw’s wide array of roof ventilators all come with 20-year guarantees, as well as air flow areas of up to 15,000mm2 depending on the vent.
