Northwards Housing, is seeing its relationship with Wienerberger strengthen in light of an industry-wide shortfall in the supply of concrete.
In response, the Manchester based non-for-profit management organisation, Northwards, has utilised one of Wienerberger’s large format clay roof tiles in order to meet tight timescales and react to market demand.
Northwards has a stock of around 13,500 properties and currently re-roofs between 700-800 units per year. It has recently used the Actua Flat clay tile in order to facilitate the completion of three large refurbishment schemes in a timely manner.
Wienerberger’s Actua Flat clay tiles provide durability, ease of installation, and an aesthetically pleasing finish to builds.
John Harris, National Sales Manager at Wienerberger, commented: “We’re thrilled that Northwards is using our Actua Flat Clay tiles because supplying clay tiles to this sector is not a typical occurrence. They bring a huge range of benefits; not only do they tend to be more durable but they also provide long-term colour stability and give an incredibly appealing finish to building projects.”
