Priordale Road

Sandtoft concrete roof tiles from Wienerberger were used for essential roof renovations on this social housing development.

WDH use premium Sandtoft concrete tiles from Wienerberger bring new lease of life to properties on Priordale Road in essential roof renovations.


The Challenge

WDH’s Investments and Improvements team were tasked with bringing a new lease of life to properties on Priordale Road, one of their social housing developments in Featherstone, West Yorkshire. For the essential roof renovations that these properties needed, they chose Sandtoft concrete tiles from Wienerberger.

The Solution 

During the 12 week refurbishment project, the housing association’s own team of contractors used Sandtoft tiles for the full roof replacements of 16 bungalows on Priordale Road, whilst another 68 houses received remedial work to their insulation, eaves, fascias and soffits.

Wienerberger’s roofing team worked closely with WDH’s team to deliver the 2000m² of concrete tiles that the project required. WDH were able to benefit from the use of Wienerberger’s RoofSpec® tool which is part of the online technical support service available to customers. RoofSpec® generates a comprehensive set of specification clauses that ensures a roof is designed and installed to latest standards and guidelines. By following these guidelines, WDH received a 15-year RoofSpec® guarantee for their Priordale Road project.

When choosing suitable tiles for the bungalows, WDH carefully consulted building regulations and looked to another of their nearby projects where Sandtoft tiles had previously been used. Confident in the performance and appearance of these existing tiles, WDH chose to use the interlocking Double Pantile and Plain Tile again on this development to bring some cohesion to the local area. The Rustic colour was selected to achieve an authentic aged look on the pitched roofing and vertical façade tiling. Wienerberger’s Koraflex lead replacement flashing solution was also used on this project.

Craig Smith,

Senior Project Officer at WDH, commented:

“By using Sandtoft products, our team of fitters were able to finish the roofs with an impressive quality of workmanship which our tenants are delighted with. This project is part of our Capital Investment Programme which aims to create better living environments for residents by improving the appearance of our estates. These key roof renovations will also extend the life cycle of these properties and reduce the need for future repairs and maintenance.”
