Why You Should Consider a Copper Roof

Dec 13, 2022

Beautiful shiny copper roof being installed on a homeThe exterior of your home takes the brunt of Mother Nature’s anger so that you and your family can stay safe and dry. It makes sense to choose the most effective, high-performing products you can—especially if you’re a resident of Florida or another area that has a long hurricane season or otherwise harsh weather every year. If you’re exploring a copper roof installation because you want something a little hardier than traditional asphalt shingles, you’re in the right place. Read on to learn about copper roofs and see what makes them such a good investment.

The Perks of Having a Copper Roof

The benefits of copper roofing are many, but here are a few of the main reasons so many homeowners are choosing to upgrade to a copper roof:

Exceptional Durability

Despite being a kind of metal, copper roofing is not susceptible to rust or corrosion. It is also highly resistant to fire, humidity, impacts, and other common sources of damage, so it can handle even the worst weather with ease. Furthermore, a copper roof requires little in the way of maintenance to stay in good shape.

A Long Lifespan

The average lifespan of a metal roof is about 40 to 70 years. In fact, for many who choose to have a metal roof installed, it’s the last roof they ever need. A carefully installed copper roof can last a century or more, so chances are you won’t have to go through the roof replacement process again.

Unique Beauty

Have you ever wished your home was the envy of the neighborhood? Investing in a copper roof will all but ensure this. New copper roofing is a warm copper color and incredibly shiny. As it ages, the surface takes on a beautiful blue-green hue that’s hard to mimic. This coating, called a patina, provides an extra layer to keep your roof protected. In other words, your roof becomes even more durable and unique as it ages.

The Process of a Copper Roof Installation

Copper roof installation looks similar to the installation of any other roof. First, your roofing contractor will examine your existing roof and take measurements. If there are any structural concerns, those will need to be rectified before the new roof is installed. They’ll calculate how much copper roofing they’ll need for your project and order it from the manufacturer.

Then, they remove the old roofing and make any necessary repairs. The underlayment is installed, followed by the new roofing material. Ridge caps and vents are created and formed to the roof as the final step. The entire process can take several weeks from initial consultation to project completion, mainly due to planning and shipping times.
