- About CDI
For the first time since February 2020 we can finally say, with a fair degree of certainty, that we are going to be exhibiting this month.
On the 24th September The Homebuilding & Renovating Show returns with their ExCel Arena exhibition in London.We know this Government can change it’s mind at the drop of a hat, or while on a beach on holiday, but at the minute we are all steam ahead to attend our first exhibition since before Covid changed our lives. The Homebuilding & Renovation Show, at ExCel in London, is on from Friday 24th to Sunday 26th September and we can’t wait to get going again.If you are planning a build project and you are looking for something a little better than traditional where your floors are concerned please do come and visit the and pop along to our stand, B134, and have a look at what Lewis Deck or one of our other systems could do for your project.For more information on the show please visit the HB&R website at https://www.homebuilding.co.uk/…/homebuilding-and…
We will also be entertaining people as we are booked in to do one of the seminars taking place at the Masterclass Theatre.
Our slot is on Saturday afternoon at 3pm to 3.20pm. We are on just after the home cinema discussion and before the talk about home saunas. So that’s 3 world class discussions to be held in a row. It’ll be worth the entrance fee (it’s free to enter) alone!

Ask CDI a Question
What are the Lewis Deck sheet sizes?A
Q: What sheet sizes are held in stock for delivery within a few days after order? A: We stock 2500mm and 1300mm sheets. These are all 630mm wide and 16mm deep. Deliveries are made via the pallet network directly to site. The smaller sheets are aimed at small bathroom renovation projects and can be supplied in small numbers via TNT. 2.5* and 1.3m sheets allow for the 100mm overlap to occur over a joist, with joist centres being either 300mm, 400mm, 600mm, 800mm*, 1200mm and 2400mm*. (*2.5m sheet only) For larger projects we are able to produce bespoke sheet sizes if required, please get in contact to discuss other options for sheet sizes.Q
Lacomet – How come it has no scrap value?A
Lacomet – How come it has no scrap value? Many of the projects that we get involved in starts with a phone call or email to us from someone researching replacing stolen leadwork. Many of these are old buildings, such as schools or churches, where this isn’t the first time that the lead has been stolen and they call us fed up with having to replace it again full in the knowledge that they will more than likely go through the same problem once more in the near future if they continue to use lead. One of the big benefits that Lacomet FL brings to a project is the fact that it has no scrap value and therefore the chances of it being stolen are massively reduced. Due to the 2 thin aluminium layers, and its five layer total construction, it is of no value to thieves. Lacomet can be recycled but the polyester based coating would need to be de-laminated first and the amount of recovered aluminum is then very low, in fact it would be easier and more profitable to collect empty drinks cans than to mess about stripping Lacomet down. We can also supply stickers that can be placed in strategic locations informing people that what is now on the roof is not lead and that it has no scrap value.
Why don't my Lewis sheets interlock like they do in the video?A
Q: Why don't my sheets interlock like they do in the video? A: The sheets have two sides (one printed, one plain), the dovetails on either side are different widths, it is then necessary to alternate the sheets print up and then print down.Q
Is this a question?A
If it is, this is an answer.
