CUPA PIZARRAS slate has recently featured in the renovation of homes in the Scottish village of Blairlogie, guaranteeing durability and quality appearance, as well as retaining the heritage feel of the farm buildings that were previously there.
The Powis Mains Farm project has seen the old farm buildings and barns removed, replaced with 11 spectacular three-bedroom homes, all of which honour the farm’s previous glory.
The local authority requested all homes must use specific materials which blend in with the traditional Scottish architecture of the village, given Blairlogie is a heritage area. Therefore, CUPA PIZARRAS’ Heavy 3 slate was selected.
Developer and Architect of this project, Bobby Halliday, was hugely impressed by the quality of Heavy 3 slate.
“Heavy 3 was ideal for this project due to its close resemblance to the traditional highland slate from Ballachulish that is no longer produced, making the CUPA PIZARRAS slate now the primary choice for traditional Scottish slate roofing, whether it be for new or refurbished roofs,” he said.
“In addition, it is the only slate that can successfully withstand the Scottish weather, thanks to its thickness of 7-8mm.”
Heavy 3 offers complete peace of mind, coming with a 100-year warranty – in addition, CUPA PIZARRAS has never needed to replace any of its roofs in Scotland.
Bobby Halliday talked about his working partnership with CUPA PIZARRAS, referring to them as a ‘well established company’ that he enjoys working with.
“When we took the scaffolding down for this project, there were very little breakages, making this roof manufacturer stand out amongst many competitors,” he said.
A previous project that Bobby Halliday Architects completed with CUPA PIZARRAS products was awarded ‘Development of the Year’ by the Herald Property Awards.
Derek Waters of Derek Waters and Sons, the Roofing Contractor for this project, said the slates are ‘solid and can stand up to any powerful weather’, whilst Allan Liddell, Area Sales Manager at CUPA PIZARRAS, said it was ‘excellent that CUPA PIZARRAS has become a part of this incredible renovation project.’
