Cheswick Place

Edgemere concrete interlocking slates

Bloor Homes has chosen Marley's Edgemere slates in Smooth Grey and Smooth Brown as a cost-effective roof finish for 95 new homes in the Solihull village of Cheswick Green.

All in the detail

Cheswick Place is a new development of two, three, four and five bedroom superior homes, designed and built to fit in seamlessly with the village location. Bloor Homes specified the Edgemere tiles in Smooth Grey and Smooth Brown as a contemporary, yet cost effective, roof finish which blends well with the surrounding village roofscapes.

With its leading edge of only 18mm, the Edgemere has been precision-engineered to be 40% thinner than standard concrete interlocking tiles. Its large format coupled with a broken-bond laying technique make it ideal for quick and easy installation, saving you time and money, and it is versatile enough to be used on pitches as low as 17.5°. The Edgemere slate has been designed to integrate seamlessly with Marley’s dry fix and ventilation systems into a full holistic roof system, ensuring complete protection from the elements and full compliance with BS 5534. The product is BES 6001 accredited and can achieve extra credits under BREEAM and HQM. As a roof covering, these tiles have a very low carbon footprint and environmental impact and can score an A+ rating in the BRE Green Guide.

“We have an ongoing relationship with Marley and our commercial team chose to use the Edgemere slates at Cheswick Place because they are so cost effective and much thinner than standard concrete tiles."
