MacBlair Builders Merchants has strengthened its roofing division with the appointment of Business Developments Manager, Malcolm McLean, a highly experienced roofing professional with over 20 years’ experience in the roofing sector.

An expert in all roof coverings and accessories, Malcolm’s technical knowledge makes him your first phone call for all things roofing. Malcolm will be overseeing the ongoing project of adding a dedicated roofing centre at the Cookstown depot to further enhance MacBlair specialisms within general merchanting, which include civils, brick, doors and architectural ironmongery.

MacBlair offers expert advice on your roof covering. Whether its natural slates, clay tiles or something else, they have got you covered. As stockist of all leading roofing products MacBlair has the right choice for all budgets and projects, no matter how big or small.

Malcolm explained, “Working from the architectural drawings I can identify the specified roofing material and offer more economical solutions if the client is looking to engineer a saving. A full take-off and quotation will be provided for roofing material required for the project. I can also advise on the right choice of roofing membrane, roofing lath and ventilation requirements for the roof. 

“I, or one of our external sales team, are available for site visits. We can provide samples and discuss with the client their roofing needs, recommending the right roof covering and accessories for their site location. My clientele are predominately self-builders, so the expertise offered is reassuring for the less experienced homebuilder.”

MacBlair has developed a strategic partnership with SSQ, who is a leading global supplier of outstanding natural slate and stone. Their slate portfolio includes the timeless Del Carmen and Riverstone slate range, two of the most sought-after slates in Europe. 

MacBlair also stocks man-made slates, concrete and clay tiles from leading manufacturers. The benefits of being a builder’s merchant means MacBlair can offer everything needed for your build from the first block to the last slate. “Regarding roofing, we offer loose timbers, trusses, lath, membranes, chimney pots and slates, with a wide and diverse range of products available ex-stock.” said Malcolm. 

The Cookstown branch is in the process of opening a dedicated roofing centre. “Our aim is to provide a comprehensive roofing supply service to the NI market from our branch network, supported by our Cookstown Hub.” explained Malcolm. “We are installing complete roofing displays both internally and externally to assist our customers in making the right choice for their roof covering. Why not call in and see for yourself?”
