Euroshield to replace slate roof on The Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort & Spa, St. Andrews, Scotland

PRESS RELEASE

Euroshield® “Heritage Slate” rubber roofing chosen to replace slate roof on the iconic Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort & Spa, St. Andrews, Scotland.

The architect (Neil McLeish – NMA Architects – Edinburgh), CBA Surveyors and the Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort & Spa, after an extensive world-wide product search, have selected Euroshield’s Heritage Slate rubber roofing to reroof the famous Five-Red Star Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort & Spa in St Andrews, Scotland.

The refurbishment started on January 2nd 2017 and will be completed on 13th April 2017.

The Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort & Spa, regarded as one of Europe’s leading resorts, has a slate roof covering at present, which is 28 years old and damaged by golf balls over the years. Euroshield’s Heritage Slate was chosen because it is an environmentally friendly and accurate replication of the current slate roof. An added benefit for the Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort & Spa is Euroshield’s ability to absorb and deflect the energy from golf ball impact without dents, cracks or damage. The current slate roof has considerable damage, cracked and broken tiles, from golf ball strikes over the years.

The installation will be undertaken by Braisby Roofing Ltd of Dunfermline, Fife. G.E.M. Inc., the manufacturer of Euroshield rubber roofing based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada manufactures slate-like and shake-like profiles for sloped roof applications. It is extremely impact resistant (UL2218 Class 4 Listed) and is one of a very few products available anywhere that is covered by a Hail Damage Warranty to 2” in diameter, in addition to a 50 year nonprorated product warranty.
