CUPA Natural Slate

CUPA PIZARRAS is the world leader in natural slate. Our 16 quarries and 22 processing plants in Spain enables us to offer the widest range of natural slate, with our Heavy 3 slate being the best choice for Scottish roofs.Heavy 3 slate is quarried from the Group’s No3 quarry in San Pedro de Trones (Leon) in northern Spain, in operation since 1892 and produces 25,000 tons each year. This slate has a slightly gritty texture, and in some samples well defined parallel lines are clearly visible on the cleavage surfaces.It is suited for the Scottish market due to its close similarity to the traditional highland slate from Ballachulish (no longer produced). Furthermore, Heavy 3 is produced at a thickness of 7-8 mm, the extra thickness gives it strength to combat dampness, high wind speeds and driving rains common throughout Scotland. Whether it’s time for a roof renovation, a house extension or building a new home, Heavy 3 slate is the perfect solution for roofing, no matter the style or trend, because it adapts to any design. Not all roofing materials are equally durable. A good quality slate is very durable and will out-perform better than other roofing materials. In fact, Heavy 3 slate can last over a hundred years, making it a very cost effective roofing, and unlike other prefabricated materials, it will not change, either in appearance or in performance. In addition to this, our quality system is so meticulous, that we guarantee our slates for 100 years. Our exhaustive control of the whole process enables us to offer a range of natural slates that exceed all the international quality standards. This means that, if you are looking for peace of mind, you will not find such a high quality product as CUPA PIZARRAS’ slate.Besides, slate is proven to be the product with lower environmental impact than any other roofing solution. It is subject only to extraction and working processes and does not need any additional treatment. So, if you are interested in new eco-friendly architectural trends, slate is the best choice for you!More info at http://www.cupapizarras.com/uk
