David Wilson Homes Specifies Forticrete Roof Tiles For New Luxury Development

Forticrete's innovative Gemini roof tile has been specified by David Wilson Homes (North West) for use across Bollin Park, a stunning collection of stylish and distinctive four- and five-bedroom properties in the affluent town of Wilmslow, Cheshire.

The 24 acre development was designed to create a bespoke and prestigious range of properties. To ensure exactly that, David Wilson Homes specified Forticrete's Gemini roof tile in Grey and Mixed Russet.

Tony Sutton, Technical Director at David Wilson Homes (North West), commented: "With Wilmslow such a sought-after location and one with a considerable appetite for bespoke, exclusive homes, it was vital that we specified materials that reflected exactly that. Forticrete's Gemini tiles certainly didn't disappoint."

Forticrete's Gemini interlocking tiles have been specifically designed to replicate the look and feel of traditional plain tiles, maintaining the appearance of a traditional plain tile roof. They have 50% less CO˛ emissions per m˛ roof and improved coverage, using less tiles per m˛ making it a much more cost effective solution. The roof tiling solution features increased tile strength and an even stronger, tighter interlock as standard and because they are so simple to install, the cost to lay them is also significantly reduced.

As well as being extremely energy efficient, these next generation roofs tiles are aesthetically pleasing, easy-to-install and high in quality. They have been specifically designed as interlocking tiles which are just 270mm x 337mm overall, yet because of a carefully judged central groove and innovative ‘double cambered’ design, they have the appearance of two traditional plain tiles side by side when laid, effectively laying two tiles at a time.
