CUPA PIZARRAS‘ Heavy 3 roofing slate was recently chosen to cover a small hamlet of low energy houses built near Strathaven, South Lanarkshire.

The bespoke rural countryside development, Floors Farm, has already had its first phase completed, consisting of three luxury detached homes. Phase Two consists of a further two detached homes, with 12 more in Phase Three.

Externally, the houses feature sandstone facades, timber doors and windows, fascia and soffits and internally are decorated smartly.

David Bryson explains that CUPA PIZARRAS’ Heavy 3 met all of the requirements for aesthetics, quality and longevity, promising to withstand the inclement Scottish weather conditions. “It’s also a good choice for when we need to repair and replace traditional roofs in the area, as there are many visual similarities between traditional Ballachulish slate and Heavy 3,” David says.

More than 125,000 Cupa Heavy 3 slates have been installed so far, with plans to use the slates on the 12 houses in Phase Three in the future.

The slates were nailed directly to the sarking boards using copper nails, selected for its anti-corrosive benefits. The roof was then finished with expert leadwork detailing and, having been designed as low energy homes, solar panels are incorporated into each roof.
