Story Homes chooses Roofshield to endorse quality and excellence

Award winning property developer Story Homes has chosen Roofshield, the unique vapour and air permeable pitched roof underlay as a key product in their strategy for continuous improvement in the quality of build. The developer’s passion for quality and excellence has enabled Story Homes to become recognised for building a inspirational, modern, high specification homes.

In 2017-18, Story Homes hopes to sell more than 1000 homes across three regions. With expansion plans to build 700 houses in Cumbria, South West Scotland, Lancashire and the North of England, all sites from the beginning of 2017 will be constructed using Roofshield from the A. Proctor Group.

An important area which Story Homes wanted to improve was the ventilation of their cold roof spaces, particularly given the complexity of the roof designs on their 4/5-bedroom house types. Following initial meetings between the A. Proctor Group’s technical team and the developer’s design team, Roofshield was selected. It’s high performance air permeability means that the roof space has five times more air changes than using traditional eaves/ridge ventilation.

In line with guidelines and a statement issued by the NHBC, independently certified air and vapour permeable underlays can be used without additional ridge ventilation in cold roofs. The use of Roofshield vapour and air permeable membrane will lead to savings in labour and material costs, and avoid the risk of ventilation being blocked by insulation or household storage.

As we look to create buildings which are better insulated, and more energy efficient, taking the management of moisture into account in the design process becomes more critical. Roofshield pitched roof underlay, which is both air and vapour permeable, was chosen for the roof because it has an extremely high degree of vapour permeability, as well as air permeability, so will still perform in conditions in which airtight alternatives will not.

The A. Proctor Group developed Roofshield 21 years ago in response to problems caused by the requirements of the UK’s demand for cold-pitched roof construction, and the drive towards ever increasing thermal performance requirements. Today, trusted by architects, developers and contractors, the Roofshield brand is synonymous with the highest quality, providing a pitched roof underlay, which is both air and vapour permeable.
