Persimmon Homes development near Sidmouth in Devon featuring Westerland slate from Cembrit

Laureate Heights is a small development of just 85 homes situated to the north of Sidmouth,

Each home is finished in either combination of brick or render and attractively roofed with the Westerland slate, an attractive and durable fibre cement alternative to natural slate, supplied in Blue/Black,

Persimmon Homes said: “This is not the first project where we have had Westerland slates installed. We aim to work with sustainable products, and since Cembrit‘s fibre cement range was awarded a Certificated Environmental Profile with Green Guide ratings of A and A , these slates were our first choice.  In addition, the dressed edge of Westerland gives a perfect natural look to the project.”

Westerland slate is an economic alternative to natural roofing materials.

Its attractive riven surface and natural dressed edges make it an ideal solution for situations where a traditional appearance is important.
