CUPA PIZARRAS natural slate, a timeless rustic look to St. Mary's Church in Ohio


St Mary Church with CUPA 98 natural slateCUPA 98 natural slate was installed on the roof of the St. Mary's Church, located in Tiffin (85 S. Sandusky St, Ohio 44883). Our dark grey slate with thin laminations and a riven surface fits in well with this catholic parish, founded on 1831. 

The natural slate restoration of St. Mary Church used our CUPA 98 Heavy (40x25), exclusive hand-quarried 7-9mm thick natural slates. Heavy slates have given St. Mary Church a unique and timeless rustic look. Suitable for both modern and traditional buildings, CUPA 98 harmonises with the rest of the surrounding architecture in the small town of Tiffin.

Ideal for Ohio's severe weather conditions, cold temperatures and high winds, CUPA 98 natural slate is resilient to the elements.

CUPA PIZARRAS, the world leader in natural slate, extracts a wide range of natural slates from different quarries, available in multiple shapes and sizes. Using cutting-edge production and quality controls, we roduce unique, globally recognized natural slates that meet or exceed all international standards.

The architecture of St. Mary's is stunning in its beauty, featuring three magnificent stained glass rose windows. The former organ was an all-pipe instrument that was a conglomeration of pipe ranks from a number of different builders.
