A recent visit to the NSBRC (The National Self Build & Renovation Centre) January show and it was good to see so many enthusiastic self builders and renovators browsing the aisles, taking advantage of the seminars and live demonstrations.
The Centre is the UK’s only permanent visitor centre designed specifically to meet the needs of self builders, renovators and home improvers. They even have a full scale Renovation House that leads you through the journey of a major renovation project.
Roof Assured installer County Flat Roofing has a permanent exhibit at the show so if you are in the Swindon area just off Junction 16 of the M4 then you can pop in and see the Sarnafil membrane installed on the mocked up roof. There’s lots of information on the stand which will give you a good overview of the features and benefits of the single ply membrane and showing a variety of installation options. The stand has a 3D cross section showing a warm roof build up finished with the Sarnafil membrane and there’s also a mini green roof, installed on top of the membrane. The roof model also shows the level of detailing that can be achieved with the Sarnafil membrane showing exactly how versatile it is as a roofing solution. It’s so much easier to see all these functions in reality than looking at drawings and more helpful for anyone researching flat roof solutions.
There’s lots of shows around the country targeted at the self builder but we would certainly recommend a visit to the Centre – it’s free to visit and easy to get to, so doesn’t need too much planning, unlike the bigger shows that are only open for a few days in certain months. The NSBRC has a wide range of self build and renovation focussed products on display and plenty of ways of receiving more information. It’s a great source for research and information gathering without too much stress.
