Forticrete Launches New Roofing CPD

Forticrete, one of Britain's leading innovators in the design and production of concrete and slate roof tiles, has launched a new CPD to help architects and specifiers select the right product for their residential and commercial projects.

The 30 minute ‘Introduction to Roofing’ CPD covers the key considerations of roof tile specification.

With many local planners continuing to favour the use of natural stone and slate because of its rustic finish and longevity, indicative of its durability, the CPD provides an overview of how flat and profiled interlocking concrete tiles, as well as double lap, concrete stone slates, can help to design homes that are sympathetic to the local vernacular without breaking budget.

The CPD also discusses how to approach roof tile specification in circumstances that demand special design considerations such as curved roofs and vertical tile hanging.

Rachel Appleyard, Roofing Product Manager at Forticrete, commented: “At Forticrete, we’ve developed a unique expertise in the creation of innovative products which not only replicate, but actually improve on traditional materials.

“This depth of knowledge has been built through years of close collaboration with designers, architects and specifiers, developing products to suit individual needs. With that in mind, there isn’t anyone better placed to provide architects and specifiers with the advice and guidance they need to successfully design with concrete roof tiles and slates.”
