The South East may have been enjoying a heatwave, but builders visiting DW Nye on Monday were getting ready for winter by finding out about the latest products on offer.

In the first of a series of demo days being hosted this year, the builders' merchant, in Kingsfold, gave away free bacon butties and hot drinks to all visitors. A selection of key suppliers was on hand to provide advice and show their new products.

One of the demonstrations of the day was Easy-Trim’s liquid waterproofing membrane, which has been formulated to produce a fast curing, seamless, tough and elastic system that can be used on flat and pitched roofs. The waterproofing system negates the need for primer and will cure in less than 30 minutes. The waterproofing system can be applied to roofs in as low as -5 degrees celcius.

Rex Nye, owner and managing director at DW Nye, said: "There’s some great new products out there that we wanted our customers to hear about, whilst benefiting from discounts, so we hope they found it useful and informative."

DW Nye's next Demo Day will be in September.
