Copper Standing Seam Roofing from Copper Roofing

Copper Roofing has introduced copper roofing to homes that are supplied by Main Line Contractors.

Copper is durable and soft. Due to this feature, the material can be applied on any surface used on the roof. The appearance of such a roof also gradually turns into patina green which provides a natural look to the roof. For users who do not wish to retain the green colour, a suitable alternative would be metallic copper colour made of Galvalume. Galvalume is carbon steel that is coated in aluminium and zinc with a kynar paint finish. This feature makes it more resistant to rust, rot or fade over a long period of time.

Galvalume roofing is also highly reflective and has a 35 year paint finish warranty. However, a major drawback of Galvalume roofing is that it is not as soft as copper. Hence it cannot be curved or formed for applications that have bow windows, domes or bays.

Another alternative is a lead-coated copper roof material which is of lesser weight than regular copper roof material and is resistant to corrosion and involves lower costs. It also supports materials whose run off stains are compliant with light coloured masonry, concrete, marble, limestone, white painted woodwork and highly porous materials. The colour range produced by stains is between light to dark grey. Lead-coated copper is usually stocked in cold rolled temper weighing 16-20 ounces.

Main Line Contractor specialises in metal shingle roofs and standing seam metal roofs.
