RSL branch manager in Exeter, Lee House, commented on why the CUPA product was an obvious choice for specification.

“It was a job where quality and longevity were paramount and we know that is always certain with CUPA PIZARRAS, with the R12 Excellence offering a 100 year guarantee. I have also dealt with the area rep, Nigel Tozer for a number of years and we get good support from the company.”

CUPA PIZARRAS delivers to anywhere in the country, assuring to make it an easy and efficient process for those involved in a project. With its salesmen being slate experts, the Tail Mill project had expert advice and specialist knowledge on hand to help.


Present throughout the process, CUPA PIZARRAS can aid with any queries, whether it be in terms of selecting the right slate or product installation. Merchants can be assured they have the backing of the supplier, with the possibility of the quality director personally visiting the roof construction.
