The copper roof is still a big player in modern choices for roof type. If you’re thinking of having your roof replaced this fall, don’t neglect to consider all of the available choices, even the seemingly-uncommon ones. They might have more benefits to offer than you might have imagined!
See the Appeal of a Copper Roof
Those in the business of designing roofs say that a copper roof can add “classic, unique” qualities. If this is something that you’re interested in, then consider copper as the cover when you might your next big move in terms of a roof replacement.
Copper is a metal, of course, and therefore falls under the umbrella of metal roofs. It has more visual appeal than many other varieties, though, which offers the benefit of solid curb appeal to anyone whose house is topped with one. If it’s of any additional interest, this factor can aid in resale value down the road.
A copper roof also boasts a level of durability that you won’t find with non-metal roofs. They can last for “up to 50 years or even more with regular repairs and maintenance,” so that should play a big role in what you ultimately decide. Along with that strength is copper’s resilience to the elements, such as hail, and conditions like mildew buildup.
Despite its durability, a copper roof doesn’t have much by way of weight. This is a good thing, considering how much the weight of a roof matters, particularly when it comes to snowy weather. If an already-heavy roof is laden with snow during a big storm, you may encounter leaks and the threat of a collapse. Rather, this “lightweight material” won’t put that extra stress onto your home and result in dangerous conditions.
Finally, think of a copper penny. They’re usually shiny and this is because copper reflects light (rather than absorbing it). A copper roof does the same and therefore effectively cuts down on power costs. Whether you’re trying to keep in heat or cool air, this type of roofing material will do the job for you and save both money and energy.
