Lochmaben Businesses Come Together to Support Local School

A Lochmaben roofing manufacturer, contractor and builders’ merchant have joined forces to re-roof a local primary school despite the Covid pandemic.

Leading pitched roof tile manufacturer Russell Roof Tiles worked with Lee Glover Roofing Contractors, Dumfries and Galloway Council and North West Roofing Supplies to provide a seamless roofing supply for Lochmaben Primary School – that is future proofed for years to come. 

The re-roofing project started March 2020 but stopped due to the pandemic. Work restarted in July 2020 to completion in September 2020.

Russell Roof Tiles is based on an 11-acre Halleaths site and recently unveiled a £1.7m capital investment programme for the tile plant.

The firm worked closely with Lochmaben based Lee Glover Roofing Contractors to supply over 13,000 Grampian tiles in Peat Brown.

The Grampian tile forms part of the Russell Commercial Range. Commercial Range tiles are traditional sized interlocking tiles in a variety of profiles which provide a cost-effective roofing solution.

Alan Young, Regional Sales Director at Russell Roof Tiles commented: “We’re pleased that a number of local businesses pulled together to re-roof Lochmaben Primary School in its time of need – especially as the construction industry faced product shortages.

“Having built strong foundations and relationships in Lochmaben Russell Roof Tiles will continue to support the local area in every way we can. We’re delighted that we were able to provide our high-quality roof tiles and contribute to such an important project.”
