For centuries, Copper has been used as a roofing material and is still very popular today. Its timeless beauty and aesthetic appeal makes it not only a fit for historic buildings, but it’s also a great option for modern and contemporary architectural designs.
Copper also holds several unique advantages that enables it to surpass other roofing materials. So, if you are looking for an ideal material to use on your architectural or heritage roofing restoration project, why not choose Copper?
A Copper roof expresses beauty, durability, resistance and has an excellent cost-benefit ratio.
Benefits of copper roofing:
Cost Effective: The performance, maintenance, general lifespan and recycling recovery costs are factors that determine the cost-benefit ratio of the building components.
Although the initial price of a copper roof is higher than that of some other roofing material it generally lasts many more years so, you will be actually saving money by not needing to replace the roof as often.
Copper is such a stunning and durable roofing material that having a copper roof can really increase your home’s curb appeal and resale value. Additionally, Copper roofs are also incredibly energy efficient because they reflect light away from the roof instead of allowing heat into the building, reducing heating and cooling costs
Durable: Copper roofs are highly durable mainly because of the metal’s natural properties. Along with being fireproof, Copper offers resistance to most of the things that can damage a roof like: corrosion, mildew, mould, fungus and other bacteria’s.
Over time a copper roof also forms a protective patina that self-regenerates when damaged. This protective film works as a barrier or shield helping it withstand all forms of natural abuse, from high winds to torrential rain, contributing this way for its exceptional lifespan.
Light weight: Copper roofing is incredibly lightweight, which means that it doesn’t put a lot of stress on the building’s structural elements. This feature is especially helpful for aged structures.
Low maintenance: A Copper roof requires little to no cleaning or maintenance. It is particularly suitable for areas that are too difficult or dangerous to access after its installation.
Natural & Recyclable: One of the great things about copper roofing is that it is very sustainable and environmentally friendly. Copper is an all-natural material present in all plants, animals, and humans and unlike other metals, its non-toxic and highly recyclable.
