Copper Roofing Types
Copper is a chemical element and a ductile, malleable, and soft industrial metal. It has a reddish-brown color, but, over time, exposure to the elements will result in the formation of a green outer layer, or patina. The roofing material is highly versatile and you can find it in several forms.
Copper panels are available in standard sizes and thicknesses. During installation, we fasten the panels to the roofing deck with joints. Then, we connect them with seams by crimping or welding them together. Copper panels are the most affordable type of copper roofing.
Copper shingles are popular among residential homeowners because of their visual appeal. The installation of copper shingles is similar to that of shakes or slate shingles and involves the use of fasteners. Like copper panels, shingles make an affordable and attractive option for your home.
With continuous copper roofing, we cut the material to fit your roof’s unique dimensions for optimal curb appeal. Instead of using multiple shingles or panels, your roof comes as one solid sheet, which means it has no seams or joints.
Copper Roof Advantages
When it comes to aesthetic, copper offers unique value that you can’t always achieve with roofing materials such as corrugated metal or composite shingles. Copper has a reflective surface and a unique, authentic color that will give your building a striking, high-end appearance.
Copper’s light weight reduces the time and cost of installation significantly. That means a copper roof also places a minimal load on your building, reducing the likelihood of costly structural issues in the future.
Your copper roof can withstand exposure to the sun’s UV rays, water, temperature changes, and high winds while maintaining its structural integrity and protective properties.
Without regular maintenance, your copper roof will turn green. Still, many property owners prefer this rustic appearance.
Unlike roofing materials such as concrete tiles or wood, copper has anti-microbial properties, which is why many people also use it for doorknobs.
Copper resists algae, mold, and bacterial growth. It doesn’t decay over time, and its fire-proof properties make it ideal as a safe roofing material.
Copper roofing is recyclable. Recycling copper offers a more affordable option than to mining new copper. The recycling process uses 15% of the energy required to extract the same amount from a mine.
