There is no better endorsement of product quality and performance than an industry accolade, and for SR Timber – one of the leading distributors of specialist roofing battens and the renowned ‘Premium Gold’ battens – the recent NHBC Pride in the Job awards for house building sites is testimony to the quality of its products.
For more than 36% of the winning sites in the NHBC Pride in the Job Quality Awards for the West Region – approximately 15 out of 41 – feature SR Timber’s Vacsol PREMIUM GOLD ® roofing battens. These sites belong to such leading house builders as Barratt and David Wilson, Bellway West Midlands, Persimmon Homes South, Taylor Wimpey Midlands and Taylor Wimpey West. Across all sites, SR Timber’s gold roofing battens were specified and installed by leading roofing contractors S M Roofing Contracts, based in Walsall.
Shortlisted from over 13,000 site managers across the UK, the winners of Pride in the Job 2013 Quality Award and Single Home Commendation have excelled in 12 months of rigorous judging. Roofing works in particular have been subject to unprecedented levels of scrutiny by NHBC due to past historic problems nationwide.
Adam Pearson, Group Commercial Director of S M Roofing Group, comments:
“Due to their outstanding quality and reliability, we only ever work with SR Timber Vacsol PREMIUM GOLD ® battens. To be part of a winning site team which has been very strictly judged to be among the best nationwide is very satisfying indeed.”
Pride in the Job is the only competition in the UK dedicated to recognizing site managers who achieve the highest standards in house building. As such, it has been instrumental in driving up the quality of new homes for 32 years. Competition is fierce and the site managers’ determination to win awards means that homeowners have benefited year on year from higher quality homes.
Trading Director at SR Timber, Shaun Revill, comments:
“We fully support the NHBC Pride in the Job and it just goes to show that a commitment to quality pays off. We are proud of the contributions that we have made to roofing battens over the past seven years and the success of our Vacsol Premium Gold batten, in particular, has helped reset the benchmark for quality graded battens in the UK.”
