CEMBRIT - Devon Roof Goes Green With Alpina

Cembrit’s Alpina slates have been used for a unique bespoke property in theEast Devon countryside. The high-quality grey/green Alpina Slates were used on the intricate new build project to provide a durable long-lasting roofing material that protects against harsh coastal weather, while complementing the muted natural colours that surround the house.

Located in the small coastal town of Budleigh Salterton, and set amid farmland and woodland, the home is a dream come true for owner, Brian Shorney, following an 18 year battle for planning permission. The four bedroom detached house is split over three levels and features stunning views over the sea. Designed by Jeremy Rawlings, best known for his magnificent period properties, the construction had to take into consideration several planning conditions as it was on a conservation site. The use of harmonising colours brings the entire building together with its surroundings and achieves a balanced and attractive finish. The roof was a complex and intricate matter featuring six elevations and two curved areas and local builder Simon Cox, needing a specialist roofing contractor, selected Glen Newcombe to perform the huge task of installing the new roof.

“This was a multifaceted roofing project,” explains Brian Shorney, the property owner. “It features six shallow elevations and two curved areas. Initially it proved difficult to find a roofer willing to undertake the challenge. Glen came along and undertook the task with great enthusiasm together with Andy Sterrick who installed the zinc. Cembrit provided a great amount of support throughout the installation, including a prior site inspection to advise best actions, as well as a further visit to explain the technical issues and discuss the obstacles involved. We knew we wanted a green/grey coloured slate, and being in a coastal town we also wanted a high quality product that would last against the intense weather conditions. Cembrit’s Alpina slates fitted perfectly with local authority needs, as well as our own, and proved a cost effective material. I was most impressed and grateful for Cembrit’s high-level of customer service, and the outcome of the roof is superb.”

Alpina is a Brazilian natural slate, selected from the finest deposits and produced at some of the best facilities inPapagaios,Brazil. It is available in two colours: grey green and graphite and in a variety of sizes. With its flat surface and pleasing shade variations, Alpina slate can be relied upon to create an attractive and long lasting roof.

Alpina slate has virtually no unstable minerals such as pyrites, graphite, carbon and un-oxidised irons and will withstand the most severe weather conditions: they are unaffected by sunlight, ultraviolet light and even acid rain. Laid correctly Alpina slate will last the lifetime of a building and are ideal for use on any type of project.

Using skills built up over 80 years, Cembrit offers a wide range of cladding panels, corrugated sheet and natural and man-made roofing slate. Quality levels at group factories are rigorously maintained to high standards with many products manufactured under the control of ISO 9001 and British Board of Agrément. CembritUKis a member of Cembrit Holding A/S (formerly the Dansk Eternit Holding A/S) ofDenmark, one of Europe’s major building material producers of fibre reinforced cement products for the roofing and cladding industry. The ultimate parent company FL Smith this year celebrates its 125 year anniversary.
