What You Need to Know About Copper
Copper oxidizes when exposed to the elements. When it is first installed it’s a shiny orange. Over time, it turns to deep brown, green, and then finalizes as a beautiful blue-green. During this process, it’s developing a patina. Depending on where you live, the colors will either change more rapidly or perhaps end up with a different hue.
The Best Roof Colors to Use
Most colors match well with copper accents. Color ideas for a roof include green, grey, or black. Additionally, rich brown shakes and other warm colors match well. A brown roof especially works well with copper accents because it influences the surface color. If you want advice when it comes to picking the right color, Cox Roofing will discuss the options with you.
Copper Roof Accents Make Your House Stand Out
Copper gutters, flashings and a cupola are some ways to integrate this material that has been used for centuries. It’s easy to make a statement with copper gutters because most homeowners opt for basic colors. Not only do copper gutters have the potential to last 100 years, but they require minimal maintenance. Copper flashings offer an increased level of insulation which means the temperature of your home will always be comfortable. A copper copula has been used since the 8th century. It gives your home character and oozes a sense of uniqueness.
