Natural slate roof covering

'Natural slate is a product that adapts to any project, always providing considerable added value. Its natural properties give it exceptional technical characteristics: long service life, waterproofing and fireproofing. With a durability of over 100 years, natural slate is the most resistant material used for roofing. Unlike the artificial products, the color and the properties of slate stay, unalterable, through time with no need of maintenance. Only natural slate guarantees a perfect performance in any weather condition.

Besides, as it is 100% natural, slate is the most sustainable roofing material. CUPA PIZARRAS’ slate is only subject to extraction and craft working processes, with no need for additional treatments. This makes it the ideal material for more sustainable construction to reduce environmental impacts.

The natural sheen and inimitable texture of this stone make it an elegant material with a unique personality. As a differentiating feature it confers prestige to any surface where it is used and ensures a timeless style with incredible durability.

CUPA PIZARRAS has been producing the widest range of natural slate for roofs and cladding since 1892. Our 16 quarries and 22 processing plants enable us to offer any kind of natural slate for roof tiles or facades, making our range of products the most complete on the market.'
