Luxury Property gets Glendyne treatment

Glendyne natural slate has provided elegance and charm to an imposing new property in Yorkshire. The dark blue/grey slates provide the perfect complement to the fresh white facades and natural stone details at the luxury home.

Located in the village of Bessacarr, Doncaster, on prestigious Bawtry Road, the property was recently re-roofed as part of a complete refurbishment. Overseen by Discount Roofing of Doncaster, the roofing project used 9500 Glendyne slates on the large L shaped, multi-pitched roof. The workability of Glendyne ensured the installation was a smooth process from start to finish.

“Glendyne is easy to work with so it is an ideal slate for this type of project,” says Phil Leach, Regional Sales Manager for Cembrit. “The quality is consistent and the durability second-to-none. Its reputation for having similar qualities to Welsh slate is well earned and it continues to be a great alternative.”

Sourced from the town of Saint Marc du Lac Long, Quebec in Canada, Glendyne benefits from a smooth texture and the combination of modern extraction technology and traditional finishing skills ensure a consistently high standard product. Used in a number of countries the slate is one of the most widely tested roof slates achieving the highest ratings under all of the test regimes.

The slate has a fine consistent grain, and is able to withstand all weather conditions making it ideal for specifiers and roofers in the UK new build and restoration market.

Available exclusively from Cembrit in the UK, Glendyne offers great value for money and if laid correctly, will last the lifetime of a building.  Using skills built up over 80 years, Cembrit select natural slate from Spain, Canada, Brazil, China, India and the countries of Western Europe. From UK quarries Cembrit offer Welsh, Cornish and Westmorland slates. Quality levels at Group factories are rigorously maintained to high standards with fibre cement slates produced to BS EN 492:2004 and manufactured under the control of a BS EN ISO 9001: 2000 quality management system.
