Copper Sheets Roofing Explained
Copper metal is very versatile; it has been used as a roofing material since Roman times. Its many desirable properties of being: strong, water resistant, malleable, durable and long lasting, make it an ideal candidate for a superior roofing material. The metal itself is very attractive. Copper naturally reacts with different substances in the atmosphere and will, if it is untreated, get a green patina over its surface, this is also known as antique copper or verdigris. Many people find copper patinas very attractive and prefer them to the natural copper color, over time the patina will cover the copper with different patterns. This layer can easily be removed, if it is unwanted, and the copper will return to its original vibrant colour. Copper roofing sheets show much versatility, the malleable metal can be easily shaped by experienced copper roof installers, into copper shingles, facade panels and copper cassette panels.
