Top-Rated Copper Roofing Experts In Central Texas

copper roof

Copper is a unique material for metal roofing. The striking color makes it stand out and is one of the most popular options for metal roofing. It 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, so you won’t lose your investment even if your roofing system changes.

Rhino Roofers offers many metal roofing options, including standing seam, corrugated, and steel roofs.

What is Copper?

Copper is a shiny and reddish-brown metal that’s featured on the periodic table and found naturally on the planet. One of the best things about metal roofing is its recyclability and sustainability.

Like many metal roofing types, it’s 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 a high thermal conductivity which means 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 nearly any shape or design, there are only a select few types of copper roofing, and each one has its own purpose.

Continuous copper roofing is manufactured and sized precisely for the job. It’s installed without joints, seams, or breaks. It’s the most expensive option due to installation time and manufacturing efforts.

They are cut in standard size and installed with joints, seams, and other breaks. The seams can be crimped or welded together during installation. It’s less expensive than continuous copper roofing and best used in a Rhino Roofers setting.

Shingles are cost-effective and can be installed like other shingles. They’re secured in place with fasteners to prevent a reaction if they come into contact with other metals. They’re elegant, stately, and make a great addition to any home.


First and foremost, 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.

Moreover, it is strong and long-lasting. It is strong, 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.

This particular roofing material is extremely lightweight so it reduces the strain on your home’s frame. This is especially important when you have heavy snowfalls like we occasionally experience in Central Texas. Due to its lightweight characteristics, it’s also easier to install.

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


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

In addition, copper roofing will increase the value of your house and last a lifetime. It has the advantage of never losing its value. The value has almost doubled between 2009 and 2021, proving how much this metal appreciates.

All in all, these 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 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 it is not essential.
