Top 5 natural slate pitched roof projects of 2017

12 January 2018

The roof  is an essential part of any house, and choosing the best option is very important. The advantages of natural slate in pitched roof  are numerous, due to slate being a building material with unmatched technical features, durability and maintenance.  Often associated to tradition, the truth is pitched roofs last far longer and require less maintenance than other alternatives.

During 2017 this type of roof has conquered some of the best building projects, in UK, and all around the world, and CUPA PIZARRAS has had the privilege of being part of them. This is our top 5 picks for natural slate pitched roof projects in 2017:
