Copper Metal Roofing and Cladding Materials…
Copper has earned a respected place in the related fields of architecture and building construction. It is used for a variety of architectural elements, including roofs, cladding, domes, spires and rainwater goods.
The history of copper in architecture can be linked to its durability (copper roofs are extremely durable in most environments, and have performed well for over 700 years, primarily because of the protective patina that forms on copper surfaces), corrosion resistance, low maintenance, prestigious appearance, and ability to form complex shapes.
For the past quarter century, copper has been designed into a much wider range of buildings, incorporating new styles and varieties of colours. Indeed, copper clad walls are a modern design element in both indoor and outdoor environments.
Natural copper’s most famous trait is its display from a bright metallic colour to iridescent brown to near black and finally to a greenish Verdigris patina. Copper alloys are also available in a range of colours including bronze, brass and gold.
