A DTE and Moduroof installation.

Donaldson Timber Engineering secures license agreement for ModuRoof systems

Published:  08 January, 2014

Donaldson Timber Engineering (DTE) has secured a licensing agreement with Charcon Construction Solutions, to promote and sell its Moduroof system.

The deal will see DTE provide roof trusses for these projects using Moduroof.

Developed by Charcon, Moduroof is a complete modular roofing solution, fully manufactured offsite ready for rapid on-site erection. The roof can be externally finished in the factory with fascia, soffits, bargeboards and even gable brick-slips; and for ‘room in the roof’ solutions, the system can be internally finished in the factory - from chipboard decking to plasterboard lining.

The Moduroof approach offers a number of key benefits, including increased speed of installation, no on-site waste and dramatically reduced risks of working at height. Plus, as the weight of the modules is less affected by wind speed than lighter panelised systems, erection is not as weather dependent.

As one of the UK’s leading suppliers of timber roof trusses, metal web joists and I-Joists, the deal adds to DTE’s already considerable portfolio and continues the company’s long tradition of developing engineered wood products for the construction industry.

Jonathan Fellingham, managing director of Donaldson Timber Engineering, said: “Moduroof is an exciting opportunity for us as a company and for the industry as a whole. We are thrilled to be a part of this innovation and to be providing such an integral part of the overall product.

“Given the recent upturn in demand for newbuild housing and the related supply squeeze, Moduroof can provide a simple, safe and extremely fast installation and is suitable for newbuild, retro-fit, cold or warm roof. It is without doubt an economical and future proof approach that is perfect for both housebuilders and contractors.”

Mr Fellingham added: “We have already had the opportunity to supply trusses for a Moduroof project in Derwenthorpe for Barratt and the feedback we’ve received has been fantastic. Our designers are working along with the ModuRoof team to enhance the product and I’m happy to say that the results so far have been positive all round.

“Supplying Moduroof with Donaldson roof trusses is something we are extremely proud of and we look forward to our products being part of even more homes up and down the country.”

One of the major talking points in the wake of the Brexit decision has been around the country’s current housing shortage with a YouGov poll from this year revealing that first time house buyers are now 38-years-old, on average.
