Architects have been using copper roofing in their works for centuries. For instance, systems that can be seen today date back centuries. If you want to have a roof that will remain strong even as your grandchildren start having kids of their own, copper is the best solution.
At Royal Roofing Inc. we offer copper metal roofing systems to Toronto residents. We can assist you in designing a roof that will boost the image of your house and boost its value. Since panel prices are too high to install them on commercial properties, it is used in residential systems. This system doesn’t come cheap, but considering the benefits offered by this material, its cost is justified.
Benefits of Copper Roofing
Copper metal roofing systems made out of this material have various advantages including:
- Low maintenance.
Roof care can be costly and time-consuming. Yet this system needs little care. You won’t need to do anything beyond an annual cleaning unless some horrible hurricane attacks Toronto and damages your roof with the flying debris.
Note that this procedure should be performed by professional contractors, because they use specialized solutions and tools that won’t damage patina, the natural protective coating that prevents corrosion.
- High degree of weather protection.
Snowy Toronto winters won’t be threatening your roof, since this material is impervious to water damage, and its natural protection gets stronger when the metal ages and oxidates (patina). Properly placed copper roofs won’t be damaged by winds. This metal offers efficient lightning protection.
- Fire resistance.
Copper roofs won’t catch on fire from a stray ember that travels up your chimney. If a fire occurs inside the house, the roof can prevent it from spreading.
These roofs are green. Patina turns the metal greenish, but it indicates that it’s environmentally friendly that matters most. This roof can last for centuries and be recycled if you decide to replace it.
