Many property owners choose copper because of the curb appeal that it adds to their home. There’s no doubt that copper offers a unique look and a level of elegance that few other materials can achieve, but copper actually offers several other advantages in addition to the visual appeal.
To start, copper roofs and copper gutters are extremely durable. In fact, copper is the only roofing material that will actually get stronger (and more beautiful) as it ages. The material will build up a protective layer over time that acts as a barrier or shield against outdoor elements like strong wind, heavy rain, sleet, and more.
This incredible durability leads us to the next benefit: copper is a cost-effective roofing and gutter solution in the long term because it’s expected to last nearly 100 years. While other roofing materials like standard asphalt shingles will last 20-25 years, copper can last more than a century! This means your initial investment in a copper roof or copper gutters will outlast any other roofing option by a wide margin.
Lastly, copper requires little to no maintenance throughout its lifespan. So long as your copper roof or gutters are installed correctly, you shouldn’t ever have to worry about leaks, missing/broken shingles, or anything else that can become a problem with traditional roofing. The only maintenance task that you may be required to do is simple debris removal.
All in all, copper is a beautiful, durable, and maintenance-free material for both roofs and gutters. If you’re interested in a professional installation from a quality contractor that you can trust, contact our team at Community Roofing today for a free, no-obligation quote.
