Copper Roofing

The Top-Rated Copper Roofing Experts

copper roofing experts Fishers, IN

When it comes to metal roofing, copper is one of the most unique materials. Its brilliant color makes it stand out, and it’s among the more splendid options in metal roofing. Copper roofing is bold and brilliant, and it’s chosen in residential settings because of the special aesthetics it provides.

A copper roof gives you curb appeal and excellent resale value. Just like other metal roofing, copper roofing is recyclable. However, it’s worth almost as much as you paid for it if you were to strip it off and resell it, meaning you’ll never lose your investment, even if you decide to change your roofing solution later.

3 Kings Roofing and Construction offers a variety of metal roof types from standing seam, corrugated, aluminum to steel roofs..

What is Copper?

Copper is a shiny, reddish-brown metal. It’s an element on the periodic table and is found naturally in the earth. One of the most appealing things about metal roofing is its recyclable properties and the fact that it’s replenishable, sustainable, and eco friendly.

Copper is soft and highly malleable, like many other metal roofing types. It can be shaped into any design you want, so when using it on a roof, it can be made to look like brick, tile, shingles, and much more.

Copper is known for its beauty and its strength, so it’s no wonder it makes a wonderful roofing material. It has a high thermal conductivity, so like aluminum, it can keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

Types of Copper Roofing

While copper roofing looks great on any building and can be molded into any design you want, there aren’t many types of copper roofing, and each one has its own intended purposes.

Continuous

Continuous copper roofing is manufactured and cut precisely for the job. It’s installed without joints, seams, or other breaks. It’s the most expensive option because it involves the most time and effort to manufacture to exact specifications and install.

Copper Panels

Copper panels are cut in standard widths and installed with joints and seams. Sometimes the seams are crimped together, and other times they’re welded together during installation. It’s less expensive than continues copper roofing and best used in an 3 Kings Roofing and Construction setting.

Copper Shingles

Copper shingles are low in cost and can be installed like other shingles. They’re secured in place with fasteners to prevent a reaction during contact with other metals. They’re elegant, stately, and look great on any home.

Advantages of a Copper Roof

One of the primary benefits of using copper as a roofing material is its curb appeal. Its bright copper color shines brilliantly from afar, making your home stand out. It increases your home’s resale value and assures new buyers that they are getting a sturdy roof.

Copper is very strong and durable. It can withstand the strongest hail and wind and is resistant to mildew. Copper roofing will last for fifty years or more if you inspect it regularly and strive to maintain it.

Copper roofing is very lightweight, so it minimizes the stress you put on your home’s frame, which is critically important during heavy snowfall like we see in Fishers every winter. The lightweight composition of copper roofing also makes it cheaper to install.

Copper has natural anti-microbial qualities that prevent it from growing algae, bacteria, mold, and other fungi. It’s also fire-proof, which is another significant advantage to all types of metal roofing.

Copper Roof Cost

Copper roofing tends to be one of the more costly options when looking at metal roofing. Metal roofing costs more upfront to purchase and install than tradition asphalt shingles, but it lasts a long time.

However, copper increases the value of your home and will last for a long time. One of the excellent benefits of copper roofing is that the copper itself never really loses its value. From 2009 to 2021, copper has nearly doubled in price, showing how well this metal appreciates.

Roofing prices always vary by location so you can contact a copper roofing company for more information about copper roof installation/replacement and get a free estimate for copper roof service.

Copper Roof Maintenance

Maintenance is low for a copper roof. You may choose to clean it now and then, but you rarely need to do much. Scrubbing or putting too much pressure on the copper can damage its natural shine and patina.

If you choose to do more than hose it down, you can use a natural citrus cleaner and a soft brush to preserve the shine without damaging your roof. This will keep it looking new, but it’s not necessary.

    I contacted Paul after I watched his crew install my brother's roof. 3 Kings Construction is by far the best roofing company I have done business with. Paul Crouse is professional and very knowledgeable. His crew is enjoyable and … More the men are courteous, hardworking and do an amazing job with the install as well as the clean up.

    Paul Crouse, owner of 3 Kings Construction, personally came out to assess the condition of my roof after a recent hail storm. I contacted him after talking with a neighbor who had his roof replaced a few months earlier by Paul's team. … More (He was NOT like the many contractors coming into our neighborhood knocking on doors looking for business!). Paul is a very knowledgeable, upbeat, positive person who was willing to take as much time as I needed to have all of my questions and concerns addressed. After interviewing two other contractors, my decision to go with 3 Kings Construction was an easy one. His easy-going professionalism, strong attention to detail and the concern and respect he has for his crew members were huge selling points for me. Paul gave me a start date and his crew arrived on time, fully prepared to start work. During the two day roof and gutter installation, the crew protected my landscaping, AC unit, patio furniture and fence from roof debris and always left my property neat and tidy. I have not found a single roofing nail! Many of my neighbors have made positive comments about the new roof and gutters as well as the work ethic of Paul's crew. After my experience with 3 Kings Construction, I can see why Paul Crouse holds the status of being one of Owens-Corning's preferred contractors. I am pleased to say I can recommend 3 Kings Construction without reservation.
