Using a Vapour Control Layer Will Reduce Condensation

June 20, 2017

TBS stocks Vapour Control Barrier Sheet, from JRT Supplies. It’s a quality 125mu polyethylene product that forms a barrier to help reduce convective heat loss and prevent condensation between the layers of a structure. It comes in a 2.45m x 50m roll and is green tinted. The advantage of a single roll is that it prevents cracking in the screed.

You can use Vapour Control Layer in the roof, walls and floors, to prevent warm, damp air from inside the building from penetrating into the structure or the roof. It is often used in commercial applications, but it is ideal for timber framed houses.

By using a vapour barrier, you meet sustainable building requirements and also environmental goals.

Our sales team can help you further and give you an attractive price for this useful building aid. So why not give TBS a call!

Celebrity Customer Feedback?

June 20, 2017

Biff

We just had to let you see this! It’s always nice to receive positive customer feedback, but this is special. Biff’s owner is a long-standing account customer at TBS Daventry.

What’s more, Biff is a celebrity in his own right. Remember the John Lewis Christmas 2016 advert – the dog on the trampoline? “Buster the Boxer” is our very own Biff!

Rubbish DIY of the Week?

Santa, don’t try this one! There are “stacks” of reasons why it’s bad. Common sense “flue” out of the window!

We can only hope this was a very temporary make-good until the scaffolders arrive to do a proper repair.

Trade and DIY alike seem to be catching on to artificial grass.  We’re pleased to tell you that you can now buy it from TBS.

When synthetic lawns first appeared, they looked exactly that: synthetic and not very convincing. But the product these days is the real deal – it looks like an established lawn. Our supplier, Evergreens UK, has given us sample squares for customers see for themselves. Just ask for one at one of our branches. We stock two different types, which are sold by the metre in 4m width:

RIVIERA: 38mm pile with Super Soft Yarn Technology for the ultimate natural feel and texture gives the most authentic and lush looking lawn.

FAME: 25mm pile is super soft to the touch with highly natural green tones for a wonderful looking lawn.

We also stock the recommended joint tape and joint glue.

Synthetic turf can be the ideal way to replace tired garden lawns or to transform roof gardens, play areas, pool surrounds, decking and balconies. Artificial Grass is suitable for both domestic and commercial landscaping applications.

Our supplier sells only to builders merchants, and TBS is the registered supplier for the Daventry / Towcester area. So give our Sales team a call for further information, lead times and attractive prices.

Mind you, it won’t cover everything. Sorry, Kev!
