What our customers have said? We spoke to Allied Roofing contractors of Stockport who have worked in roofing since 1989.
Chief Purchaser Paul Sansome explains why Alto Lead was used on there recent projects.
'We went with Alto Lead Plus primarily because it is a cheaper alternative to Lead that has zero scrap value, which is a primary concern for a lot of our clients . It is a quick and easy product to work with and is definitely a product I would recommend to those requiring Lead alternatives.'
Roofer Ashley Hill of Allied Roofing
'For me its chief benefit is the speed at which I can work with it. It is easily moulded and cut simply with a pair of scissors, also the 2-part silicone release film is a great benefit which other Lead alternatives often do not have. It is great to use on low levels where a nice finish can really complete the job.'
