CUPA 12 R Excellence
Easton Square, an exclusive development of four bespoke, luxury 6-bedroom houses, features CUPA 12 R Excellence roofing slates. The product was selected for its superior qualities including its adaptability, longevity and polished finish.
The exclusive Langton Homes development is set in large private grounds in Great Easton. Each property features over 5,500 square feet of accommodation and has been tailored towards the individual needs of each occupier. CUPA 12 slate has been used across all four Easton Square dwellings including the properties’ associated outbuildings and garages.
Supplied through Castle Roofing Supplies, CUPA 12 is a dark grey slate with thin laminations and a smooth matt surface. Available in six sizes, it has exceptional consistency of thickness and surface appearance; it is split to an average thickness of 5mm and 6mm. In addition, the slates conform to the product specification requirements of BS EN 12326-1 and are certified for resistance to freeze or thaw.
Commenting on the choice of CUPA 12 slate for Easton Square, Jonathan Arksey, at BRP Architects said:
“Our aim was to deliver an uncompromising design to reflect the natural beauty of the homes’ surroundings, with excellent quality of build, intricate craftsmanship and superior finishes. CUPA PIZARRAS slate’s timeless appearance not only complements all the external materials that make up the dwellings, but is also in harmony with roofing used throughout the neighbouring Conservation Area of Great Easton”.
Robert Cannon from roofing installers R and N Roofing, said:
“CUPA 12 slate is a heavy and durable material which is not only straightforward to work with, but also allows for the extensive coverage required to reach the desired quality of finish. Also, due to the dwellings’ pitched roofs it is important that the materials can adapt to the demands of varying gradient levels, which CUPA 12 slate does perfectly”.
