Copper Roof Cost Efectiveness:
Cost-effectiveness is a proven, long-term benefit. Although copper roofs are initially more expensive than most other roofing systems, they have an extremely long service life, oftentimes outlasting their occupants. The more common roof materials such as wood and asphalt shingles have a service life of approximately 25 years. Metal roofing, specifically copper roofing, has a service life that spans centuries.
Types of Copper Roof
While a copper roof can be utilized in every type of building design, there are three main types of copper roofing materials. A trained contractor like Mr. Cat will be able to advise which type will be best suited for your specific need.
Continuous Copper Roofing
This specialty installation is generally designed and fabricated ahead of time for a specific copper roof job. It involves laying out sheets of copper on top of the underlying layer of roofing materials, and it assembles in one piece without joints or a standing seam. Continuous copper roofing is the most expensive of the three options.
Roof panels are less expensive than continuous sheets. They are copper sheets that arrive in standard sizes and are hand-installed on the roof with noticeable seams. Some seams are crimped in a process called standing seam copper roofing. Other seams are brazed or welded onsite.
Copper Roofing Shingles
The most popular and commonly used roofing material is their relatively low cost. The new copper shingles are hand-applied — much like any other type of shingle roofing materials — but special attention must be paid to prevent damage to the soft surface of the copper. This method also requires copper fasteners to prevent metallurgical reactions when other metal products contact copper roofing.

Benefits of Having a Copper Roof
Copper roofing is known for its distinctive bright, shiny red-orange color, which naturally turns green over time. It is a uniquely flexible material allowing skilled copper roofing contractors to create intricate design elements. Copper carried many more benefits aside from its beauty, it also:
The durability of copper is unmatched. Copper is the only roofing material that improves with age. A copper roof will withstand all forms of natural abuse, from high winds to torrential rains. As it ages, copper builds up its protective film that works as a barrier or shield. You can’t achieve this type of durability with other products.
Copper is naturally antimicrobial, and it has natural qualities that resist fungus and bacteria growth. Copper roofs are mold- and rot-free, making them easier to keep clean. Rainwater alone is usually all you need to wash away dirt and biological contaminants.
Having a copper roof will increase the value of your home or building. The visual impact, alongside the longevity and durability of a copper roof, will push your property into the next level and entice more high-end interest.
The most obvious benefit of having a copper roof is the architectural and aesthetic appeal. Copper roofs are elegant and set off curb appeal like no other, creating a sense of pride and satisfaction that is hard to measure.
