This impressive property, due for completion in late 2016 is built to Passive House standards by Wexford Timber Frame Homes and is roofed throughout using Dryseal. Ivor Gilbert, the owner of the Company decided to train to install Dryseal in 2015, having been delighted after using the system on several new houses.
Ivor said “We have been using Dryseal for the last four years because of its excellent track record in lightweight construction and the ability to finish the system with decorative trims to make a good-looking roof that is similar to metal in appearance. With the 20 year insured guarantee providing peace of mind at a reasonable price, we are very happy with the Dryseal system.”
Passive House is a German standard of energy efficient construction that can apply to any building. Very high levels of insulation and air tightness are required, to ensure that the building will not require conventional central heating, so heating the building is usually fulfilled by heat recovery systems and managed solar gain.
Having inspected the property in July 2016, Hambleside Danelaw’s Technical Manager John Godley said “This is project shows off the skills of Wexford Timber Frame Homes beautifully. We are really happy with the quality of the Dryseal installation and the way that the roofs look adds to the overall high standards of this excellent Show Home”.
Wexford Timber Frame Homes are based in Co. Wexford, serving the South-East and beyond since 2000.
