Copper Roofing Adds Stylized Dimension To Your Home.
Thinking copper for your next roof? Copper roofing adds earthy appeal to high-end homes. This lightweight material can last more than 100 years when properly maintained and is resistant to fire, hail, and mildew. Unlike slate tiles and shake roofing, a copper roof won’t weigh down your home’s structure, especially during heavy snows. The most important thing when choosing a copper roof for your home is to fully understand the nature of copper and its transition over time. Let’s get started:
- Patina: Copper develops a rich patina over time. While your copper roof starts out bright and shiny, over time it darkens into a burnished copper and begins to develop a lovely blue-green hue. Take a look at the roofing and gutters on older buildings in downtowns across the country. They frequently have copper gutters and roofs that vary in color and dimension.
- Durability: Copper is lightweight and durable. Unlike most metal roofs, copper never rusts and will not mildew.
- Cost: Copper is a more expensive option than virtually any other roofing material on the market. Metal roofing is typically 3-4 times as expensive as a standard shingle roof and copper costs twice as much as metal. Many people will choose to use copper over part of the roof, but not over the whole thing. It looks great as an accent over bay windows and dormers.
