No more tears with Hambleside Danelaw

  • 30 Nov 2020

Watching a TV programme has spurred a Cornwall roofing contractor into action, to give something back to society, in partnership with Hambleside Danelaw.

The inspiration for Mike Wheeler, Managing Director at RCC Roofing, is DIY SOS The Big Build. which he says makes him cry when he watches it

“Personally I do a lot for charity anyway; the show demonstrates how providing a nice home can bring a family together. We all need that,” Mike said.

Mike founded RCC Roofing almost a quarter of a century ago, and has been a user of Danelaw roof ventilation solutions from the outset.

His desire to do some good means he has volunteered for, and now been involved, in a number of Big Builds in the South West, supported by Hambleside Danelaw. For RCC’s DIY SOS Big Build projects, Hambleside Danelaw donates its products free of charge.

The latest DIY SOS Big Build project RCC Roofing helped with was at Carbis Bay, which aired on 26 November. Here, the semi-detached home was single-storey extended on two sides. 

RCC Roofing had to upgrade the existing roof, and cut into it to abut the new shallow pitched extensions. Mike and his team used Danelaw Individual Dry Verge plus accessories, Dry Valley Trough Tile, Dry Valley, Fast Flash, Conti-Soaker, Rigid Felt Support Tray and Tile Vent Soil Pipe Adapter Complete Kit to finish and appropriately ventilate the roof, all supplied through Mammoth Roofing. 

Mike added: “Having the support of Hambleside Danelaw makes it easier to help the Big Build. Everyone involved gives their time, effort and materials for free.

“That can create some interesting scenarios at times – we’ve been finishing the roof detailing and the scaffolders have been following us, taking the support framework down literally the minute we moved off it!”
