Copper is one of the oldest, most durable and aesthetically pleasing building materials. Besides being the actual roofing material, some common uses of copper in roofing include gutters, downspouts, flashings, decorative trim and bay window covers. Cornett Roofing Systems employs experienced copper roofing craftsmen who fabricate beautiful copper elements, from entire roofs to decorative spires, offering clients a highly skilled copper roofing company in the Midwest.

We also fabricate elements such as chimney caps, fountain bases, weather vanes and much more! Whether you are looking for long-lasting roofing components or decorative accents for your home or business, copper is the perfect choice.

How Long Do Copper Roofs Last?

For centuries, builders have preferred copper due to its durability and superior flexibility, strength and corrosion resistance — copper lasts much longer than other roofing materials.

Many copper roofs can last over 100 years with minimal maintenance. If experienced professionals install your copper roof and you address minor damage as it occurs, the roof can last much longer than the time you own your home.

Copper is so durable because it forms a patina after installation. A patina is a thin film produced by oxidation and corrosion that’s non-damaging to the copper’s integrity. While this layer is not entirely immune to acidic moisture and bacteria, it provides a protective shield that other metals can’t duplicate.

Copper Penny Roof Color

A copper roof’s color typically begins with an attractive hue similar to a copper penny. The roof color gradually changes as its exposure to the elements increases. The tone of the color depends on the patina’s thickness, which expands with more oxidation.

Depending on a property’s location and climate, some patinas change color faster than others. Clean copper takes longer to oxidize than dirty copper, so the better you care for your roof, the longer it will maintain its penny color. Some premium material manufacturers use lubricants that provide an extra protective layer before assembly.

Benefits of Copper Components by Cornett

Copper roofs have many benefits compared to other roofs, even if the initial cost may be higher than other materials. Some advantages of copper metal roofing are below:

  • Maintenance-free: Copper roofs are maintenance-free, unlike other roofing materials that require constant maintenance.
  • Aesthetics: Copper roofs are aesthetically appealing, improving your home’s curb appeal and making it stand out.
  • Long life: Copper roofs have a long life span. They are the most long-lasting roofing type and can withstand the elements for over a century. In most cases, the copper roof outlasts the homeowners.
  • Fireproof: Copper is fireproof, meaning your roof will not go up in flames if an ember falls on it. This characteristic of copper can significantly discount your insurance premiums.
  • Unsusceptible to inclement weather: Copper is invulnerable to harsh weather conditions like snow, rain, hail and thunderstorms. The material is strong enough to withstand any weather conditions in the Midwest, lessening the need for copper roof repair.
  • Increased home value: Due to its longevity and aesthetic appeal, copper roofing can increase your home’s value.
  • Environmentally friendly: If you are sustainability-conscious, a copper standing seam roof is the way to go. Copper lasts a long time, avoiding the use of new resources — and if you ever want to change your roofing, the material is 100% recyclable.
  • Lightweight: Copper is lightweight, so it doesn’t add extra weight to your building’s structure.
  • Great return on investment: Even if copper roofing installation may cost more upfront, you will soon get a return on investment. This material lasts a lifetime, is maintenance-free, increases your home’s value, discounts insurance premiums and lowers heating and cooling costs.
