- About CDI
As Covid-19 pandemic has caused the cancellation of a number of events over the last few months including a couple of Homebuilding & Renovating Shows they have come up with the novel idea of holding a “virtual” exhibition in July.
This exhibition, being held between July 24th and 25th will give you the opportunity to hold “Zoom” type meetings with us and a large number of exhibitors that you would normal expect to see at the NEC, Sandown and the other events that has fallen by the wayside due to the current lockdown situation. By the end of July we may be passed the worst of it, fingers crossed, but it is still going to be a while before the normal of being able to visit, and exhibit, at exhibitions will be able to happen.
TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT YOU’LL SEE VIRTUALLY AT THE SHOW:
- Exhibition Hall – Ask questions, download brochures and arrange meetings with our full range of exhibitors
- Seminar Theatre – From a beginners guide to building your own home to our kitchen and bathroom design masterclass, the seminar theatre will cover it all, no matter what your project. Check back here soon for a full schedule or keep an eye on your inbox.
- Masterclass Theatre – From the all important building systems to heating, interiors and renewable energy, hear expert advice from our very best brands.
- Expert panel – Get up close and personal with our expert panel of planners, architects and Homebuilding & Renovating magazine writers
As with the live events, both Chris and Paul will be available over the 2 days to be able to chat with and ask questions of. So if you were planning on visiting the real shows back over the last few months this will be an ideal opportunity to meet up and ask those questions you have or even just find out more information on a system that you may like the idea of using.
For more information on the show or to register your interest in attending this virtual event please follow the link below:
The event is free and as you can enjoy it from the comfort of your own home you can chill, relax and not have to worry about getting stuck in traffic and the long drive back!
We look forward to seeing you there.

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.
