At Filon, we are delighted to share our first project case study of the new ‘Heritage’ valleys that were supplied via one of our key distributors, European Plastics.
The project in Chepstow involved addressing the issue of failing valleys, and the solution that was implemented was the installation of the new Heritage GRP valley. This was done in a cost-effective manner by using the existing Bradstone roof tiles. The result of this upgrade is nothing short of amazing, with the valley now sporting a refreshed look and finish that rivals that achieved using lead. It’s impressive how this upgrade was able to achieve such a high-end finish at just a fraction of the cost!
Heritage Valley is a ground-breaking, patent-pending GRP valley trough that creates a close-mitred valley appearance using cost-effective and simple methods.
The roofing contractor had been asked by the homeowner to look at two failing valleys on their roof that had been covered with Bradstone reconstructed stone roofing tiles. The offending valleys were an attempt at a traditional swept valley that simply did not carry out its primary function of protecting the building from water ingress. So, it was suggested that the valleys be stripped, Filon’s Heritage Valley trough be fitted, and the stone tiles be recut and installed to suit the new detail.
If you’re looking for a roofing solution that is both cost-effective and efficient, you may want to consider Heritage Valley. This innovative product is specifically designed for slate and plain-tiled roofs and it eliminates the need for expensive lead soakers. Instead, it is installed beneath the roof tiles and slates, which significantly reduces the number of slate and tiles that are needed for the valley.
What makes Heritage Valley unique is its one-of-a-kind ‘S’ design, which creates a wider drainage channel while maintaining narrow tile support ledges. This means that you can achieve better drainage without compromising the structural integrity of your roof. Plus, by reducing the amount of material needed for the valley, you can save money on materials and installation costs.
Overall, Heritage Valley is a smart choice for anyone looking for a roofing solution that is both practical and affordable. So why not give it a try and see the difference it can make for your roof?

The final outcome of the roofing project was a beautifully crafted close-mitred valley. This technique allowed for a smooth and clean transition between the two roof areas, resulting in a roof that had a near seamless appearance.
