The long life of a copper roof is improved by the fact that copper provides it’s self with a naturally formed protective layer called ‘Patina’, which is green in colour when it is fully formed.
A copper roof supplied and fixed expertly by A1MAZING Roofing Services Ltd will last as long as the building it protects, which in turn means a lower life cycle cost than any other roofing material.
Copper has been used as a roofing material for thousands of years. The benefit of copper as the roofing material is that it offers enormous durability, longevity, and sustainability which are expected in today’s careful environmental building and development thinking. Copper roofs when properly installed, by A1MAZING Roofing Services Ltd can last for as long as 100 years. If you wish for 100 years of leak free roofing material together with energy savings, traditional and beautiful aesthetics then copper sheet roofing is for you. The only disadvantage is that copper is an expensive alloy, and roofing materials made out of copper are costly but, despite the high initial cost of copper roofing, the benefits can be greater than the cost in the long run. A copper roof is likely to outlast the building itself which means there will be no future roof replacements necessary. Copper gets better with age, and so will your roof. As the copper ages the affects of aging will add to the traditional look of patina to your copper roof.
Make it harder for vandals and thieves to steal the copper from your property have A1MAZING Roofing Services Ltd paint your copper roofing material with anti vandal paint, also known as anti burglar/anti-intruder paint or another product called SelectaDNA grease (See Lead Section of website)
Note: Manufacturers recommend that anti-climb paint/grease be applied two metres above normal access height and a coloured warning sign to warn thieves and vandals to stay away from the roof needs to be placed near copper roofs indicating that the DNA of people can be traced.
