Owners Handbook

Welcome to our new Handbook with details of contacts we recommend.

Suppliers:

Render Paint

Alumasc based in Finnieston are the original supplier of the external white paint for the properties built latterly, that is the Davies Acre side of the estate. Although they are primarily a trade only company they are prepared to supply paint direct. The code you need to use is MRS6 - 22-B-15. The paint comes in 10 litre pots at a cost of £32.50 per pot (correct as of May 2011). If you are applying direct to the render with no existing paint you will require a binder which is approximately £15 for a 5 litre pot.

Roof Tiles

Many residents have experienced problems in sourcing suitable roofing tiles particularly after the bad weather. We have two suppliers who can provide you with tiles that are of a higher quality and look the same as the existing tiles.

Capvond Plastics have prepared a mould of a roof tile suitable for homes on the estate. The tile is made from 70% recycled polyester resin and inert fillers with glass reinforcements for added strength. Residents can call them directly to order their own tiles. There will be a minimum order and the cost at 20/4/12 was quoted at £3 per tile. there would be a 3 week turnaround time for the tiles.
