Cembrit Glendyne natural roofing slates have covered a newly built private house in Flintshire.

The four-bedroom detached property was constructed in Northop Hall Village in Flintshire and required a roof that would allow the building to blend into the surrounding countryside. It features an attractive pitched roof with five pediments, five velux windows, two valleys and some lower roof slopes.

240mof Cembrit Glendyne was supplied to the project by builders’ merchant, Jewson. Flintshire-based roofing contractor, Daniel Crossley selected 508×254 blue-grey Cembrit Glendyne natural slates for the project and installed approximately 4,000 slates on the roof of the house and 500 on the garage roof.

Copper nails were used to fix the slates in line with best practice for natural slate fixing and long-term durability of the roof.

Glendyne was chosen as it is easy to install, aesthetically appealing and durable, according to Daniel Crossley. “The end result is impressive and Glendyne really brings out the character of the property,” he explains.

The Glendyne quarry operates a quality management system based on EN ISO 9001 which is externally audited. Glendyne is tested to BS EN European standard, BS EN 12326-1:2014 which requires many of the laboratory tests to be performed at least annually and the factory production control performed and recorded as a matter of routine by the producer.
