Copper roofs have been around for centuries; many Renaissance-era buildings and churches still have roofs covered in copper intact to this day. These roofs are a natural material that is energy efficient, durable, and long-lasting. With modern technology, it has also become possible to get custom designs for your copper roofing. This is why metal roofing, in general, is starting to grow in popularity for commercial and residential use. While it is more expensive than your typical asphalt shingle roofs, there are quite a few benefits of copper roofing that outweigh the disadvantages.
One of the first benefits of copper roofing is the durability and longevity of the material. Copper is a far better material for durability than other residential and commercial roofing systems. With proper care, copper roofs can last more than 50 years and are very resilient to the elements. They are not as affected by weather, such as rain, hail, snow, and mildew, unlike other roofs.
Businesses today are looking for more ways to make roofs energy-efficient and environmentally friendly; copper roofing is one way to do that. Pairing the other benefits of copper roofing such as longevity, durability, environmentally friendly, and the ability to be recycled makes copper roofs highly recommended as one of the ways to reduce your environmental footprint on the world. Copper roofs also can ease the cost of heating and cooling your property with its energy-efficient properties.
Another one of the benefits of copper roofing is how customizable the material of copper is. Copper is lightweight, which makes it able to be customized in a variety of ways. As durable as copper roofing is, you would expect it to be putting a lot of stress on your roof, but unlike tile roofing, copper roofs don’t put a lot of stress on your roof. This means that it can be installed relatively easily on almost any roof. Copper can also be bent into even and uneven shapes allowing it to be as customizable as possible.
