Copper roofing shingles offer Michigan homeowners character, durability, and dependability that no other metal roof can match. Its elegant appearance will complement any style of building. Copper has been used for centuries throughout Europe on castles, cathedrals, historic churches, historic government buildings, and famous private residences.
When properly designed and installed, a copper roof provides an economical, long-term roofing solution. Unlike many other metal roofing materials, copper requires no painting or finishing.
Through its natural weathering process, the shiny copper roof gives way to warm bronze tones in about a year. Through natural aging, the elegant green patina finish will emerge. The time to patina varies with climate, salt, rain, and the air’s chemical composition. Copper’s resistance to the elements ranks among the highest of modern roofing materials.
