CUPA R4 slates on show at art gallery

CUPA R4 slates on show at art gallery

A private art gallery in Betws Y Coed has been roofed using CUPA R4 natural Spanish slate, selected by the client and their contractor on the basis of appearance, performance and cost, as well as their ready availability through local stockists.

Widely experienced in heritage roofing projects including churches and even a castle near Chester, Meurig Williams’ career stretches back over four decades to when his company bought slate direct from the Blaenau Ffestiniog quarries.

Meurig Williams recounted "I like the CUPA PIZARRAS slate because it is easy to cut and work while you get fewer breakages than with Welsh slate. Customers also find it far more affordable and of course it has the approved status from the Snowdonia National Park. Since we completed the Galeri roof, the local stockist - Huws Gray - has included photographs of it for their promotional literature; and we have gone on to use CUPA R4 and other CUPA slates on a number of other projects.”

As in the case of The Galeri in Betws Y Coed, these high quality natural slates will maintain their appearance and weathering capabilities throughout a long, very low maintenance life, and are ultimately fully reusable or recyclable at the end of the building’s life.
