A renovated private house in Suffolk has been roofed with CUPA 12 slates. This slate roofing material was chosen for its high-quality and appearance. The building, known as Street Farm, was designed and built by JRF Developments. The property, located in historic Bury St Edmunds, was originally a bungalow. Before the extension, the original roofing was removed, and new material was required for the project.
Since the expanse of roof was considerably large, they wanted to use a material that provided the most attractive and sleek appearance possible. During the bungalow conversion, a second-floor studio bedroom was also added to the extension of the property. Merchant AJW Distribution recommended CUPA PIZARRAS natural slates to Jamie Ferguson, Managing Director at JRF Developments, who opted for CUPA 12 natural roofing slate for the project and was truly satisfied with the finished result; Since completion of the project, they have used CUPA PIZARRAS on a second property having loved the quality look and feel of the product.
During construction, a lot of time was spent grading the slates to achieve a really pleasing aesthetic. CUPA 12 roofing slate stands out for its high quality and its dark grey shades. It can be distinguished by its thin laminations and smooth surface, that provides a uniform and elegant result. Additionally, it requires virtually no maintenance and its life span goes beyond 100 years.
