The deal will see DTE supply roof trusses for the Moduroof product it sells. Moduroof pods, manufactured at Charcon’s factory in Barnsley, are prefabricated with external finishes including fascia, sofftis, bargeboards and gable brick-slips, while “room-in-the-roof” applications can also be internally finished with chipboard decking and plasterboard lining.

“Given the recent upturn in demand for new-build housing and the related supply squeeze, Moduroof can provide a simple, safe and extremely fast installation and is suitable for new-build, retro-fit, cold or warm roof,” said Jonathan Fellingham, managing director of DTE.

“It is without doubt an economical and future proof approach that is perfect for both housebuilders and contractors.” DTE has reported positive feedback from a Moduroof project for Barratt, in which it supplied the trusses.

DTE also said Moduroof modules were less affected by wind speed than lighter panelised systems, so erection was less weather dependent. The company no longer supplies or manufactures the smartroof or SIRs roof systems.
