Milltimber Grange

Duo Edgemere Interlocking Slate - Smooth Grey & Old English Dark Red

Set in idyllic Deeside, Cala’s Milltimber Grange development at Oldford Village needed a premium, yet affordable, roof finish that would complement the rural surroundings. Already approved by local planning as a suitable alternative to natural slate, the Duo Edgemere tiles were the immediate choice.

All in the detail

Cala Homes has specified Marley’s Duo Edgemere slates for a new development of Signature Collection homes near Aberdeen. The thin leading edge concrete tiles have been used to create cost effective slate roofs for the high specification four and five bedroom properties.

Marley Contract Services fitted the Duo Edgemere Smooth Grey and Old English Dark Red tiles on the new build homes on the second phase of the Milltimber Grange development. The thin leading edge concrete slates give a slate like appearance at a much lower price and because they are an interlocking tile, are very quick to install.

Daniel Redfern from Marley, comments: “These Signature homes have a very high specification throughout and using an affordable tile like Edgemere can be very beneficial on developments like this. With a slate-look, it still achieves a premium aesthetic but enables housebuilders to focus more of the budget on luxury internal specifications, such as kitchens and bathrooms, which are often a major factor in purchasing decisions.”

With only 9.7 tiles per square metre, Edgemere is a single lap solution that is quicker and easier to install than natural slate and 40% thinner than standard concrete interlocking tiles. With the ability to perform at pitches as low as 17.5°, Edgemere has the versatility to be used on a wide range of roof types and is available in three variants, standard, riven and duo.

Edgemere slates also offer impressive environmental credentials. Independent carbon certification, the ability to achieve an A+ rating in the BRE’s Green Guide to Specification and certification to the BES 6001 standard for Responsible Sourcing, means they can help to achieve extra material credits under BREEAM or the Home Quality Mark scheme.
