Copper has been, and remains to be, the most widely used material for flashing and in a variation of roofing applications. Copper is chosen for its beauty and performance. Its many valuable properties include the ease in which in can be shaped and soldered. Its endurance, and beautiful appearance throughout the natural patina process. Over time a copper roof develops a patina finish after it oxidizes, which turns a beautiful shade of green. This actually protects the metal from future damage.
Custom Copper Solutions
When our skilled and talented tradesmen arrive at your project, you have the satisfaction and peace of mind knowing they specialize in all types of copper roofing including batten seam, standing seam and flat pan to only name a few.
Copper brings traits like classic beauty and endurance to mind, and copper roofing lives up to these expectations for both residential and commercial properties.
Like any metal, copper roofing is chosen for its:
- High resilience
- Resistance to fire, rotting, mildew and insect damage
- Lack of maintenance and upkeep required
- Protection against all severe weather conditions
- Unique, classic appearance (especially for historic homes)
You can find copper roofs on many older homes, and though they don’t seamlessly fit into many different styles like standing seam metal roofing, they look beautiful on historic homes and buildings. (think the Statue of Liberty!). If you’re looking for a truly unique look for your home and a roof that requires virtually no maintenance, a copper roof is ideal for you.
