CUPA PIZARRAS natural slate returns Chalais Castle to its original radiance and beauty

 

Chalais Castle

CUPA PIZARRAS natural slate covers Chalais Castle, located in the south of Charente (France).

The roof,  with a total surface of 3,000 square meters, was covered last year by our 8 mm thick CUPA 5 natural slate, recovering its original radiance and beauty. 

CUPA 5, THE BEST CHOICE FOR ROOFING

Chalais Castle

CUPA 5 is a pale grey slate with a riven surface, split into thicknesses of 5 mm and between 7-8 mm for the Heavy variant.

Our natural slate is available in a variety of formats such as square, rectangular, rounded or rustic.

Its texture and color make it an ideal solution for monument restoration.

NATURAL SLATE, THICKER AND BRIGHTER

Chalais CastlePhilippe Villeneuve, Chief Architect for Historical Monuments, led the castle rénovation works.

'The natural slates used are thicker and brighter than those which were installed in the past', says Philippe Villeneuve, who made a preliminary research about the monument.

Chalais Castle, an amazing Renaissance architecture, was purchased in 2011 by Yves Lecoq.
