England 31/07/2012- Roofing sheets from Foregale are flying off the shelves as consumers look for cheaper roofing solutions
Sales of roofing sheets from Foregale have been gradually increasing for several years now. Until recently, this was largely down to the fact that Forgale’s sales have been gradually increasing overall for some time now. Their business has been growing as more and more builders and consumers in East and West Yorkshire turn to them for their roofing needs. The company was established in 1981 in Mirfield. They very quickly outgrew those premises and had to move to larger premises at Liversedge by 1986. Today, they have two huge depots at Liversedge and Hessle, Hull.
Every year they have grown their sales and roofing sheets have always represented a healthy, but stable, percentage of their sales. However, recently the percentage of their sales that are down to roofing sheets has grown considerably.
There are several reasons for this, but the recession has definitely played a part. Roofing sheets are a relatively inexpensive way of making a building weatherproof. Looked at from a per meter perspective they are far cheaper than tiles or cladding. In addition, they are cheaper to install. There is far less labour involved and many DIY builders who would not tackle tiling a roof will quite happily clad a roof in roofing sheets. They are also easy to maintain. Replacing a roofing sheet is a far quicker and easier job than replacing a run of tiles. These facts mean that roofing sheets are a viable roofing option that many people now seriously consider and opt for.
The range of roofing sheets at Foregale grows
Their growth in popularity has also been helped by the fact that they now come in a far wider range of formats. Up until a few years ago, if you wanted roofing sheets you would be buying asbestos or cement sheets or corrugated iron.
Today, more modern, safer and robust materials are available. You can buy plastic sheets that look like tiles, cement sheets, GRP and polycarbonate sheets. The range of finishes on offer is huge. The fact that Foregale stock most kinds has certainly helped increase their roofing sheet sales.
