Its architectural appeal is obvious and for centuries many of the world’s most revered buildings have been protected by copper roofs.
Although it is initially more expensive, a copper roof rarely requires maintenance and its durability is unsurpassed. It is the only roofing material that improves with age – as it ages, copper builds up a patina or protective film that looks blueish green to the eye. It is also sustainable, fire resistant and has antimicrobial qualities that resist mold and fungus growth.
Although it is incredibly durable, even the best roofing material will fail when installed incorrectly – copper is no exception. Make sure you choose a professional roofer with the experience needed to insure your investment lasts for a century.
