ELC Roofing are trained in the application and repair of copper roofs. These are a popular option with flat roofing due to the durability of the material and for the obvious aesthetic benefits.
Copper has been used in the construction of roofs for hundreds of years and copper is considered to be the most prestigious of roofing materials. Not only does copper create an attractive looking roof but it also requires less maintenance than other materials. Having a copper roof installed is an excellent long term investment. Often a copper roof will in fact outlast the structure it covers.
Copper roofing will change colour over time due to natural weathering, turning from its original orange-brown colour to finally ‘Verdigris’ (green). It can also be purchased already in the final green stage.
Copper is not only highly weather proof but also fire-resistant.
