Tilehurst Roofing have expanded.Due to this years increase of contracts and our expansion into different areas of works i.e asbestos removal, G.R.P, liquid rubber and building works we have increased the size of our yards in Reading, and now have taken on two further units in Newbury.The Newbury expansion was required due to the large amount of works being carried out in Thatcham, Speen and Newbury, including the surrounding area.With our expansion comes the availability to help more customers with the addition of our new showroom and offices in the centre of the Tilehurst Village.The office now has an additional member of staff Alisha has joined the team to cope with the enquiries, joining Tracey and Caroline.Just need the weather to get some work done...
I attended the Remembrance Service at the Tilehurst Triangle on Sunday, this time without the tribute bikes.Due to the larger crowds attending the service over the years, theres no room for the bikes and displays, health & safety stuff.It is also encouraging to see a lot of younger people attending the service.After the service, a parade was led off by the Royal British legion to their Head quarters in Downing Road.We were blessed with a warm sunny day for the mornings events.Lets hope we have it a little bit longer before the snow comes.
The Tilehurst Roofing team attended the Roofing Federations conference and show in Coventry last week.New technologies - New Products - New IdeasThere were many new ideas, company's and products on show.Most were based on Eco products, heat saving and ways to save energy.There are to be further increases in mechanical fixings on roof works, especially in the new build sector, and now also in refurbishment works as well.Climate change driving home maintenanceWith all the lectures I attended, the most interesting was from a lecturer with a PhD in water drainage and associated drainage flow modelling. He states the weather has now shifted towards more heavy prolonged rain.This is starting to make the standard guttering's prone to overflow, with the standard systems overflowing at least twice a year.This matches our own experience where we have also seen a big rise in estimates required for new higher capacity guttering systems.The other good idea I found is a product that insulates on top of the rafters, and is also a breathable underlay.I will find out more on this product, and report on my findings.Caroline Scheel

As there was no racing this weekend, Team Elliott and Dude headed for the coast.John needing a break to heal after his many injuries, was looking forward to a weekend by the sea.Once on the beach I produced 2 kayaks - "Have a go John" I said.Next thing we are in the very rough and cold sea.After an hour we are heading back to shore, but disaster John was thrown from his Kayak and hanging by the seat of his pants... literally.John was caught on the boat, his shorts hooked, and upside down.Dude came to his aid and rang the R.N.L.I - www.haylinglifeboats.org.uk within minutes the racing legend had been rescued.Battered and bruised John said afterwards - Thank God for little Dude!. Johns off to France this weekend racing in a 3 hour enduro event. Next local race Binstead 20th July Moto Cross, side cars and quads.

In the meantime Dude relaxes with a 'Bolly'
