Christmas opening times 2017
It's that time of year again! Please take note of our opening times this Christmas:

ProRend Colour at Moor Park
New build eco-houses
This development of 18 newly built, energy-efficient properties stands out with the great finish of ProRend Colour. We have watched with interest as these houses, with their nature-inspired colouring, are sited near our main office in Devon. Our premium through-colour monocouche lends sharp lines and contemporary colours to the natural materials of slate, stone and oak and makes the development a pleasing addition to the village.

PROWALL: Rainscreen cladding retains 60-year BBA for durability
ProWall, the first rainscreen cladding system to be awarded 60-year certification for exceptional durability, continues to deliver first class performance in relation to fire, strength, weathertightness and stability.

Innovative glass fibre reinforcement mesh is now an integral part of modern render systems, with the days of chicken wire or stainless-steel mesh long gone.
