SIG RoofSpace - the market leading panelised room-in-roof system
SIG UK Exteriors, a division of SIG plc, is pleased to announce the acquisition of RoofSpace Solutions Limited (“RoofSpace”), effective 15 July 2014.
RoofSpace is the market leading turnkey supplier of the award winning ‘RoofSpace I-Roof’, an offsite manufactured panelised room-in-roof system focused on the UK new build residential housing market.
The business provides a fully managed package including the design, supply and installation of the RoofSpace I-Roof to UK house builders looking to maximise floor footage by creating loft living space through a room-in-the-roof. Key benefits of the system versus traditional construction include cost effectiveness, speed of construction and safety of construction.
Manufactured offsite in a controlled factory environment, up to six units can be installed in one day, saving approximately two to three weeks on a typical build programme. Safety benefits include reduced working at height and the removal of the risk of gable blockwork collapse - a significant potential issue when using traditional construction methods.
Following the acquisition, RoofSpace Solutions Ltd will be rebranded SIG RoofSpace to reflect the combination of the two market leading brands. This follows the recent announcement of the rebrand of SIG UK Exteriors and supports its stated ambition to provide additional value enhancing products, services and solutions to the UK exteriors market.
Philip Johns, Managing Director of SIG UK Exteriors comments: “I am delighted to announce the addition of RoofSpace to our Group. The business offers a fantastic solution to roof construction in the UK new build housing sector and we are fully committed to supporting and maximising its future growth potential. The new SIG RoofSpace brand will help us deliver even greater added value to our unrivalled roofing solutions and will further augment our comprehensive offer to UK house builders and the wider construction industry.”
Kevin Sherlock, Managing Director of SIG RoofSpace comments: “The combination of two market leaders that are truly committed to the roofing industry will help us deliver an even better service to our customers. We have always believed the RoofSpace I-Roof system is the most compelling solution available in roof construction and it is great to see that SIG shares that belief.”
