Crest Planum Concrete Roofing Tile


Experienced roofing manager Geoff Caulfield from East Yorkshire Roofing Services rubber stamps working with Crest Nelskamp *Planum high quality micro concrete roofing tiles.

Barley Folde is a development of two, three and four-bedroom family homes in the historic market town of Pocklington, East Yorkshire. Crest are delighted to supply the building products to Mulgrave Properties, an award-winning house builder specialising in developing unique, high quality, design-led residential properties in desirable locations throughout Yorkshire.

Crest provided two different brick types, Cortes a grey base colour brick with dark and light shades and Flemish Antique a superb red multi brick, both perfect for this development. To complement the bricks the Crest Nelskamp *Planum concrete interlocking flat tile in Onyx Black was the preferred choice for the pitched roofs.

East Yorkshire Roofing Services are a pitched and flat roofing contractor that has been established for nearly 20 years and were the chosen company to fit the roofing tiles of these bespoke contemporary properties. The project involves the installation of new roofing materials to newly built homes. All new roofs at the site are specified to be maintenance-free and include dry ridge, verge and valley system.

Geoff Caulfield managing director of East Yorkshire Roofing Services said: “We had not laid this product before but found it to be very strong, easy to lay with variable gauge, good coverage and robust interlocks and, as the finish was high sheen and the concrete structure of the tile very dense the completed look was exceptional, outshining many other roof tile products of a similar size and coverage which exist in the marketplace”.  Although the roofing contractors are based in Yorkshire they regularly carry out roofing projects throughout the whole of the UK, and have also used Crest’s clay roofing products within the Nelskamp range and also find their quality and finish of a very high standard enhancing the modern developments they are used on.

Crest Nelskamp roof tiles are recognised for their use of high-quality robust materials and proven manufacturing techniques.  With the most modern production facilities and special preparation treatments, they ensure consistency and long-lasting quality. The Top Longlife revolutionary protective finish comes as standard on the *Planum concrete range, with its ultra-smooth flat finish, acrylic colour coating and polymers sealing the tile giving “Pore Free” edges.  The self-cleaning Longlife coating has a distinctive pore seal and ensures no absorption of moisture and dirt.  The tile also offers colour resistance and protection against UV degradation.
