Zink Copper Stainless 01992 801927 www.almhm.co.uk Cambridgeshire roofing company completes complex circular roof with slate A specialist roofing contractor, covering the new-build and private residential markets, has used a selection of CUPA R12 Excellence slates from CUPA PIZARRAS to complete the roof of a distinctive circular property in Cambridgeshire. Lander & Linsey Roofing spent six weeks on site at the home near Newton, working with local builder Offord & Camp, to create a singlestorey building which features an eyebrow within the 300 pitch, covering the main entrance. All of the CUPA R12 Excellence natural slate was supplied through a CUPA PIZARRAS stockist in Cambridge. Graham Linsey, a director of Lander & Linsey, explained: “This is quite a large residential building - some 12.5 metres in diameter - with the circular, 30° pitch, meaning we had to cut every single slate. We started with 24 x 18 at the eaves, working up the roof with 20 x 15 and then 24 x 12. Finally, we finished using 20 x 10; cutting them down to about four inches in width at the top, and having to source composite tile battens to be able to bend them to the very tight radius. The finished result looks very good and the client is pleased. “Since we started our business in 2003, we have used CUPA PIZARRAS slate on a variety of mainly residential developments. They are high quality and relatively easy to cut so you do not suffer a lot of breakages or unnecessary wastage on a job like this.” The CUPA PIZARRAS R12 Excellence slates are said to offer durability, consistent colour and thickness. CUPA PIZARRAS employs a highly rigorous grading process to ensure the slates in the R EXCELLENCE Selection meet the highest standards. The regular thickness makes it easier to install, and alongside the even colour contributes to the product’s signature look. To provide peace of mind and confidence in the product, CUPA R12 EXCELLENCE benefits from CUPA PIZARRAS’ 100-year warranty.
