THE BENEFITS OF COPPER ROOFS
BEAUTIFUL, HIGH-END UPGRADE
Copper is naturally beautiful, offering a warm, shiny sheen that is visible from the street. We can install 16, 20, and 24 oz. copper and treat it in a wide variety of patinas in order to give each customer the look they are going for. We can make your copper look brand new or original to your building—along with thousands of gradations in between. Copper is such a beautiful roofing material that simply having a copper roof can increase your home’s resale value.
One of the best things about copper metal roofing in Utah is that it is incredibly environmentally friendly because it is easy to recycle. In fact, some copper roofing panels are made up of 75% recycled materials, which helps to keep more waste out of landfills. Copper roofs are also incredibly energy efficient because they reflect light away from your roof instead of absorbing it. This means that you and your family can enjoy a cooler, more comfortable home—without relying as heavily on your HVAC system and your city’s power grid.
Another reason that copper roofs are so environmentally friendly is the fact that they have an exceptional lifespan, lasting over 50 years with proper care and maintenance. Copper is naturally resistant to corrosion, fire, hail, and mildew. Also, since it is impervious to water damage and heats gently with the sun, copper roofing isn’t as likely to have problems with snow damage.
Copper roofing is incredibly lightweight, which puts less strain on your roof trusses. This means that your new copper roof won’t put as much stress on internal structures, which can help to preserve the structural integrity of your home. This feature is especially helpful for homeowners who live in climates that receive a lot of snow, since the added weight of snowpack can cause problems like roofing collapse if roofing materials are too heavy.
