Sturdy roofing slate for beautiful rural Scottish homes

Sturdy roofing slate for beautiful rural Scottish homes

CUPA PIZZARAS Heavy 3 roofing slate has been supplied for two rural housing developments in Ochtertyre and Balquhidder, Scotland.

Designed by the WS Dunsire team, both developments are similar in style to suit the architecture of the local area, using locally sourced stone as well as timber and natural slate.

The Heavy 3 slates are double nailed using stainless steel nails for longevity, with the leadwork undertaken by a local specialist.

Specified in all WS Dunsire projects since 2006, director Chris Dunsire explains: “We always use the CUPA PIZARRAS Heavy 3 on all of our projects.”

“Strong and impermeable, the thicker 7-8mm variant is most definitely the preferred choice in Scotland with the extra thickness and weight giving it strength to withstand the high wind speeds and driving rain common across the country.”
