Charleston’s Copper Roofing Specialists
A Reputable Copper Roofing Expert Serving Charleston
When it comes to metal roofing, copper is one of the most unique materials. Its brilliant color makes it stand out, and it’s among the more splendid options in residential metal roofing. A copper roof adds curb appeal to the home and excellent resale value.
Roofing USA also specializes in other metal roof types, from standing seam to corrugated, and 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. It is soft and highly malleable, meaning it can be shaped into any design you want. When installed on a roof, it can be made to look like brick, tile, shingles, and much more.
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-specific roofing, and each one has its own intended purposes.
Continuous copper roofing is manufactured and cut precisely for the job. It’s installed without joints, seams, or other breaks. It’s the most expensive option because it involves the most time and effort to manufacture and install to exact specifications.
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 is less expensive than continuous copper roofing.
Copper shingles are low in cost and can be installed like other shingles. They’re secured with fasteners to prevent a reaction during contact with other metals. They’re elegant, stately, and look great on any home.
Advantages of a Copper Roof
Increased curb appeal
Copper roofing is very lightweight, so it minimizes the stress you put on your home’s frame, which is critical during heavy snowfall like we see in Charleston every winter. The lightweight composition of copper roofing also makes it cheaper to install.
Impervious to mold, rot and fire
