Taylor Roofs’ £10k giveaway

CHRISTMAS came early for West Lothian lady Judy Irons who was the lucky winner in local company Taylor Roofs’ biggest ever competition giveaway.

Anyone who accepted the Bathgate firm’s quotes between June and August and went ahead and had a new roof installed was entered into the prize draw, with the company pledging to cover up to £15,000 of the full balance.

The quote for Judy, from Craigshill, Livingston, came in at £9,258.79 and when her name came out of the hat, Taylor Roofs managing director Jamie Taylor and his team donned their festive costumes and dropped in on her at work this week to present the stunned winner with a cheque for that amount.

Managing director Jamie Taylor said: “Judy’s roof was over 50 years old and the tiles had become porous, the membrane and old Cellotex below had started to fail and allow water ingress. There was also a lot of condensation forming in her home as a result of the roof’s condition.

“We installed a new roof with oriented strand board (OSB), new underlay, timbers, Marley roof tiles and associated dry fitting systems (no cement mortar) to ensure a maintenance-free solution. 

“The roof has also had low level and high-level ventilation to ensure the home can breathe properly in the modern climate – properly ventilating roof spaces is now more important than ever. 

“This is all covered by Taylor’s 10-year materials and workmanship warranty and we were delighted that Judy was another satisfied customer when the job was finished.

“It’s the first time we have run a competition like this and it was a great feeling telling Judy she had won and then handing over a cheque for nearly £10,000.

“One of our core values at Taylor Roofs is giving back and when better to do that than at Christmas time? The smile on her face said it all.”

Judy said: “It’s amazing! What a great early Christmas present. Thanks to the whole team at Taylor Roofs, they’ve been absolutely amazing.”
