Copper Is Durable and Sophisticated
Copper roofing adds sophistication and aesthetic appeal to any home. As copper roof contractors, we’ve had the opportunity to add this timeless look to many properties in the greater Charlotte area. We provide services for copper roofs, copper accent roofing, and copper roofing for porches.
Beyond the attractiveness of copper, it’s also highly durable and environmentally friendly. It can last for decades.
Copper roofing is distinctive and exquisite. But it’s not just pretty. It’s one of the best materials for resisting the elements. Copper roofing is bright bronze in color after installation. Over time it turns a beautiful green patina due to oxidation, with no finishing or painting required.
With a professional copper roof installation, you’ll enjoy it for years to come with virtually no maintenance.
Copper Accent Roofing
Homeowners can also choose copper accent roofing to add a touch of charm. You can choose to accent several specific areas of your roof, including the roof bents, chimney caps, finials, weathervanes, and cupolas. If your home has upper floor windows that protrude out in a pitch or other structure, we can add copper accent roofing to these areas, so they stand out and impress.
Accent copper roofing is a great way to add character to your already unique home. Although it is the more expensive choice of popular metal roofing materials, including aluminum and steel, accent roofing can help with costs, while still giving you the shine and elegance that comes with copper.
Beyond these accents, you can also add elegance with copper gutters and copper flashing.
Copper Roofing for Porches
Another hot trend in copper roofing is copper roofing for porches. Adding copper to your porch roof is a dramatic way to add depth. Whether you have a large front porch or only a small awning above your front door, copper roofing will look amazing. You’ll be adding aesthetic appeal while also ensuring the roof will stand up to nature and time.
