SSQ Ultra Del Carmen Blue-black roofing slate
The roofs of the new buildings at Mud Lane cover a large proportion of the site and as they can be seen from the surrounding higher properties, the choice of slate was crucial as it would be visible from all angles. The old clay tiles on the roof of the existing Edwardian buildings had to be re-laid whilst the new buildings were roofed in slate SSQ Del Carmen Ultra Slates were specified on the new buildings to complement the period classical style of the existing buildings. Architect Bob Bowman, Saunders Boston comments.
"We have used SSQ Ultra Del Carmen Blue Black slates on a number of projects over the past seven years. We have found them to be quite satisfactory and would specify them again. In addition, the technical advice provided by the SSQ team was excellent."
