3 Ways to Use Copper in Your Home Exterior
Although specialty metal roofing can be expensive, it doesn’t mean that you cannot have the timeless look of copper in your home. These are the 3 best ways that our customers use copper for their exteriors, and they don’t require all-over roofing.
1. Porch Roofs and Dormers, Water Tables
Copper doesn’t need to be applied to your entire house to create a stunning roof that protects and highlights your home. For homeowners who want the copper look but are on a tight budget, porch roofs, dormers and water tables can be great options. A roof break in uniform can highlight smaller sections and give the roof a timeless look.
2. Flashing and drip edges
Copper flashing, like the other options, is a great way to add dimension and interest to your home. This is especially true if you have multiple roof sections that vary in size. Flashing helps waterproof a roof system that is more susceptible to sidewalls and valleys. Copper flashing is a good choice if you have these characteristics in your roof.
Copper gutters combine the best of both functional and beautiful. Copper gutters are eye-catching and create a frame for your house while also directing water away from your foundation. The bonus: Copper gutters have the longest life span of any gutter material, so you can be confident that your investment will last a lifetime.
