3 Ways to Use Copper in Your Home Exterior
Yes, specialty metal roofing is costly, but that doesn’t mean the classic look of copper is out of reach for your home! Here are our 3 favorite ways our customers use copper in their home exteriors that don’t include all-over roofing.
1. Porch Roofs, Dormers and Water Tables
You don’t have to cover your entire home with copper to have a beautiful roof that highlights and protects your home. Porch roofs, dormers, and water tables are great options for homeowners wanting the look of a copper roof while minding a budget! A break in uniform on the roof goes far to highlight a smaller roof section and add timeless flair!
2. Flashing and Drip Edges
Like the previous option, copper flashing is a wonderful way to highlight and add dimension to your home (especially if you have several roof sections varying in size). Flashing aids in waterproofing a roof system that’s made more vulnerable by valleys and sidewalls. If this sounds like characteristics your roof, then consider installing copper flashing!
Copper gutters are the best of both worlds: beautiful and functional! The attention-grabbing look of copper gutters creates a frame for your home while also serving to direct water away from your foundation and landscaping. Bonus perk: Copper has the longest lifespan of all gutter materials, so you can trust that your investment will go the extra mile!
