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
One of the primary benefits of using copper as a roofing material is its curb appeal. Its bright copper color shines brilliantly from afar, making your home stand out. It increases your home’s resale value and assures new buyers that they are getting a sturdy, long-lasting roof.
Copper is very strong and durable, being able to withstand the harshest weather conditions. Thanks to its durability, copper roofing will last for fifty years or more with regular professional repairs and maintenance.
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
Copper has natural anti-microbial qualities that prevent it from growing algae, bacteria, mold, and other fungi. It’s also fire-proof, which is another significant advantage to all types of metal roofing.
One of the most appealing things about metal roofing is its recyclable properties and the fact that it’s replenishable, sustainable, and eco friendly.

Our Customers Love Us
I just got my 20-year-old roof replaced through an insurance claim due to hail damage. Roofing USA walked me through the whole process with the insurance company, quickly scheduled the work, and got the roof replaced in 2 days. Although it was loud and messy for two days, the crew came back on the third day and did a thorough clean-up around the entire house. The roof looks great but of course, it is too soon to know the level of quality (i.e. lack of leaks) until it has been tested with the weather. Based on my experience so far, I would highly recommend Roofing USA.
Very pleased with Roofing USA and the inspector (John B.) that came out to my house. After having to deal with other contractors, it was very refreshing to work with a group that was honest, respectful, and responsive.
John B. completed a roof inspection and gave me an honest assessment. He did not try and sell me something that we didn’t need. Actually did a few minor repairs at no charge.
Like I said I didn’t need a new roof at this time, but when I do I will be calling back Roofing USA to do the work. Very impressed so far.
Jason Davey was so helpful when I first inquired about some problems I was having with my roof. He sent Cooper over the next day and from that point on they walked us through everything on getting a new roof. Once the install date came it was extremely fast and they left the yard looking better than before they got there. The roof looks fantastic and am so happy we went with Roofing USA. I would highly recommend them based on work quality and customer service.
The team at Roofing USA in Charleston SC were Fantastic. From step one on the inspection to the final process of replacing our roof due to storm damage. They did everything and did it professionally and perfectly. They always went above and beyond doing a great job and even cleaning up each day when working so that we never got nails in our tires. Jason Davey and his entire team did a great job. I have and will continue to refer others to them for their roof inspections and repairs. They were the best contractors I’ve ever used for a roof!!!
