Top-Rated Copper Roofing Experts Serving Austin

copper roof

Copper is a unique material for metal roofing. Copper’s striking color makes it standout and is one of the most popular options for metal roofing. Copper roofing is bold, brilliant, and popular in residential settings due to the unique aesthetics it offers.

Copper roofs have great curb appeal and excellent resale values. Copper roofing can be recycled just like any other metal roofing. It’s still worth nearly as much as what you paid for it if it were to be taken off and resold. This means that you won’t lose your investment even if your roofing system changes.

Rhino Roofers offers a variety of metal roof types from standing seam, corrugated, and aluminum to steel roofs.

What is Copper?

Copper is a shiny, reddish-brown metal. It’s an element on the periodic table and is found naturally in the earth. One of the most appealing things about metal roofing is its recyclable properties and the fact that it’s replenishable, sustainable, and eco friendly.

Like many metal roofing types, copper is flexible and soft. Copper can be formed into any shape you like, so it can be used on roofs to look like brick, tile, or shingles.

Copper is renowned for its beauty, strength, and durability. It makes an excellent roofing material. Copper, like aluminum, has high thermal conductivity so it can keep your home cool in summer and warm in winter.

Types of Copper Roofing

While copper roofing looks great on any building and can be molded into any design you want, there aren’t many types of copper roofing, and each one has its own intended purposes.

Continuous copper roofing is made and cut exactly for the job. It can be installed without seams, joints, or other breaks. This option is the most costly because it requires the most effort and time to produce to exact specifications and to install.

Copper panels are cut in standard widths and installed with joints and seams. Sometimes the seams are crimped together, and other times they’re welded together during installation. It’s less expensive than continues copper roofing and best used in an Rhino Roofers setting.

Copper shingles can be installed as other shingles and are affordable. To prevent metals from reacting, they are secured with fasteners. They look elegant and stately on any roof.

Advantages of a Copper Roof

Copper roofing materials have a lot of curb appeal. The bright copper color makes your home stand out from the rest. It will increase your home’s value and ensure that new buyers are receiving a solid roof.

Copper is strong and long-lasting. It is strong and durable and can withstand even the most severe hail and wind. Copper roofing can last fifty years or longer if it is maintained and inspected regularly.

Copper roofing is extremely lightweight so it reduces the strain on your home’s frame. This is especially important when you have heavy snowfalls like what we experience in Austin every winter. Copper roofing is also lightweight, making it easier to install.

Copper is naturally anti-microbial and can resist the growth of bacteria, algae, mold, and other microbes. Copper is also fireproof, which is a significant advantage over all other types of metal roofing.

Copper Roof Cost

Copper roofing is a more expensive option than metal roofing. Although metal roofing is more expensive upfront than traditional asphalt shingles to install, it lasts for a very long time.

Copper roofing will increase the value of your house and last a lifetime. Copper roofing has the advantage of never losing its value. Copper’s value has almost doubled between 2009 and 2021, proving how much this metal appreciates.

Copper Roof Maintenance

Copper roofs require very little maintenance. It is possible to clean it occasionally, but not often enough to warrant a lot of maintenance. You should not scrub the copper with too much pressure. This can cause it to lose its natural shine and patina.

You can also use a natural citrus cleaner with a soft brush to maintain the shine of your roof without damaging it. It will help keep your roof looking brand new but is not essential.
