Shanly Homes chooses Norbord flooring for price and reliability
04 March 2020

For nearly 50 years, Shanly Homes has been building homes in the South East of England. Since their inception in 1969, the regional building company has steadily grown and now builds 500 units per year.  With the use of Norbord products, Shanly Homes develops architecturally innovative and sustainable homes.

Andy Howard, Group Buyer at Shanly Homes, explains why Norbord products have become their go-to panels.  Key factors in sourcing products include the cost and the quality of the panels and reliability of supply.  “We have used  Norbord’s CaberDek flooring panels and CaberFix D4 adhesive in multiple Shanly Homes housing development projects as they provide increased protection from the elements and are strong, waterproof and slip-resistant.”.

Norbord’s CaberFix D4 is solvent-free and designed for adhesive use to bond flooring boards to joists and tongue-and-grove joints. Andy says “We repeatedly use CaberDek combined with CaberFix D4 because it is an easy system to use and is the most effective method of achieving a “silent floor” system with the need for fewer mechanical fixings”.
