When it comes to metal roofing, copper is one of the most unique materials. Its brilliant color makes it stand out, and it’s among the more splendid options in metal roofing. Copper roofing is bold and brilliant, and it’s chosen in residential settings because of the special aesthetics it provides.

A copper roof gives you curb appeal and excellent resale value. Just like other metal roofing, copper roofing is recyclable. However, it’s worth almost as much as you paid for it if you were to strip it off and resell it, meaning you’ll never lose your investment, even if you decide to change your roofing solution later.

What is Copper?

Copper is a shiny, reddish-brown metal. It’s an element on the periodic table and is found naturally in the earth. One of the most appealing things about metal roofing is its recyclable properties and the fact that it’s replenishable, sustainable, and eco friendly.

Copper is soft and highly malleable, like many other metal roofing types. It can be shaped into any design you want, so when using it on a roof, it can be made to look like brick, tile, shingles, and much more.

Copper is known for its beauty and its strength, so it’s no wonder it makes a wonderful roofing material. It has a high thermal conductivity, so like aluminum, it can keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

Types of Copper Roofing

While copper roofing looks great on any building and can be molded into any design you want, there aren’t many types of copper roofing, and each one has its own intended purposes.

Continuous

Continuous copper roofing is manufactured and cut precisely for the job. It’s installed without joints, seams, or other breaks. It’s the most expensive option because it involves the most time and effort to manufacture to exact specifications and install.

Copper Panels

Copper panels are cut in standard widths and installed with joints and seams. Sometimes the seams are crimped together, and other times they’re welded together during installation. It’s less expensive than continues copper roofing and best used in an Roofs for Life, Inc setting.

Copper Shingles

Copper shingles are low in cost and can be installed like other shingles. They’re secured in place with fasteners to prevent a reaction during contact with other metals. They’re elegant, stately, and look great on any home.

Advantages of a Copper Roof

One of the primary benefits of using copper as a roofing material is its curb appeal. Its bright copper color shines brilliantly from afar, making your home stand out. It increases your home’s resale value and assures new buyers that they are getting a sturdy roof.

Copper is very strong and durable. It can withstand the strongest hail and wind and is resistant to mildew. Copper roofing will last for fifty years or more if you inspect it regularly and strive to maintain it.

Copper roofing is very lightweight, so it minimizes the stress you put on your home’s frame, which is critically important during heavy snowfall like we see in Bradenton every winter. The lightweight composition of copper roofing also makes it cheaper to install.

Copper has natural anti-microbial qualities that prevent it from growing algae, bacteria, mold, and other fungi. It’s also fire-proof, which is another significant advantage to all types of metal roofing.

Copper Roof Cost

Copper roofing tends to be one of the more costly options when looking at metal roofing. Metal roofing costs more upfront to purchase and install than tradition asphalt shingles, but it lasts a long time.

However, copper increases the value of your home and will last for a long time. One of the excellent benefits of copper roofing is that the copper itself never really loses its value. From 2009 to 2019, copper has nearly doubled in price, showing how well this metal appreciates.

Roofing prices always vary by location so you can contact a copper roofing company for more information about copper roof installation/replacement and get a free estimate for copper roof service.

Copper Roof Maintenance

Maintenance is low for a copper roof. You may choose to clean it now and then, but you rarely need to do much. Scrubbing or putting too much pressure on the copper can damage its natural shine and patina.

If you choose to do more than hose it down, you can use a natural citrus cleaner and a soft brush to preserve the shine without damaging your roof. This will keep it looking new, but it’s not necessary.

    I called Roofs For Life, Inc. yesterday after hurricane Ian left the area. I had several roof panels loose or blown off. Called their office yesterday morning, and Ed came out later in the day. Ed secured the loose panels, and removed the … More damaged ones. Ed will return once the new panels arrive and repair the damage. Their response, and service is outstanding! If you need roof repair or a complete roof replacement, contact Roofs For Life, Inc! You won’t be disappointed! 5+ stars!

    They did a great job installing our roof. Both removing the shingles and installing the new roof went quickly. They were also on the lookout for issues on our roof that would have cost us dearly later on and saved us thousands in future … More repairs. I would use them again.

    Awesome service. Job well done in less than 2 days. They worked with us on when we needed it scheduled. They emailed us a detailed itemized list of what everything cost before we signed the contract. No surprise fees. Very professional … More

    When deciding to put a roof on our home we started by getting quotes from multiple companies. Teagan the salesperson was very helpful and punctual which seems like all salespeople would be but it was definitely not true in this case (one … More didn't even show up). They started on the roof about 10 days after signing the contract. It took about a day and a half to complete and the workers kept the place spotless. I had a concern that I saw on the roof a couple days after they finished and one of the owners "Glen" came out himself to see it and facetimed me to go over what I was seeing. About a week later we had our first rain after the new roof was complete and our back porch was leaking which turned out not to be part of the initial roof quote. Once again another owner "Ed" came out on a Saturday to see the issue and on Wednesday morning was back and fixing the back porch transition that was leaking. I know this review is long winded but I needed to explain why I think that Roofs For Life is an exceptional choice if your in need of a new roof. Thanks again RFL for the incredible service.
