It is said that copper roofing is one of the most beautiful roofing materials available on the market today. In this article, we will discuss copper roofing and what you need to know if you are considering installing it.
The first thing you need to know about copper roofing is its life expectancy. If a copper roof is maintained correctly, it can last you upwards of one hundred years, which essentially means that its owners will probably pass away well before it needs to be replaced.
Okay, so your copper roof will last a long time and will most likely be the most beautiful roof in the neighborhood. All of your neighbors will probably be so impressed by it that they will always go out of their way to speak with you all about it and tell you how impressive you are for owning a home with a copper roof, whatever no big deal, but what practical benefits will it have as a roof? That is a great question. The benefits of a copper roof are pretty simple. The first benefit is that copper is lightweight, but at the same time, it is very strong. Copper also does a great job repelling fire, hail, and lighting. Copper roofs also do a fantastic job of preventing the growth of mold and mildew, not just because the metal has properties that repel but also because copper roofing has fewer failure points then traditional roofing materials have that end up leading to the growth of mold and mildew.
