Copper Roofing

The Top-Rated Copper Roofing Experts

Copper metal roofers Noblesville, IN

When it comes to metal roofing, copper is one of the most unique materials. Its brilliant color makes it stand out, and it’s among the more splendid options in metal roofing. Copper roofing is bold and brilliant, and it’s chosen in residential settings because of the special aesthetics it provides.

A copper roof gives you curb appeal and excellent resale value. Just like other metal roofing, copper roofing is recyclable. However, it’s worth almost as much as you paid for it if you were to strip it off and resell it, meaning you’ll never lose your investment, even if you decide to change your roofing solution later.

Rojas Roofing offers a variety of metal roof types from standing seam, corrugated, aluminum to steel roofs.

What is Copper?

Copper is a shiny, reddish-brown metal. It’s an element on the periodic table and is found naturally in the earth. One of the most appealing things about metal roofing is its recyclable properties and the fact that it’s replenishable, sustainable, and eco friendly.

Copper is soft and highly malleable, like many other metal roofing types. It can be shaped into any design you want, so when using it on a roof, it can be made to look like brick, shingles, and much more.

Copper is known for its beauty and its strength, so it’s no wonder it makes a wonderful roofing material. It has a high thermal conductivity, so like aluminum, it can keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

Types of Copper Roofing

While copper roofing looks great on any building and can be molded into any design you want, there aren’t many types of copper roofing, and each one has its own intended purposes.

Continuous

Continuous copper roofing is manufactured and cut precisely for the job. It’s installed without joints, seams, or other breaks. It’s the most expensive option because it involves the most time and effort to manufacture to exact specifications and install.

Copper Panels

Copper panels are cut in standard widths and installed with joints and seams. Sometimes the seams are crimped together, and other times they’re welded together during installation. It’s less expensive than continues copper roofing and best used in an Rojas Roofing setting.

Copper Shingles

Copper shingles are low in cost and can be installed like other shingles. They’re secured in place with fasteners to prevent a reaction during contact with other metals. They’re elegant, stately, and look great on any home.

Advantages of a Copper Roof

One of the primary benefits of using copper as a roofing material is its curb appeal. Its bright copper color shines brilliantly from afar, making your home stand out. It increases your home’s resale value and assures new buyers that they are getting a sturdy roof.

Copper is very strong and durable. It can withstand the strongest hail and wind and is resistant to mildew. Copper roofing will last for fifty years or more if you inspect it regularly and strive to maintain it.

Copper roofing is very lightweight, so it minimizes the stress you put on your home’s frame, which is critically important during heavy snowfall like we see in Noblesville every winter. The lightweight composition of copper roofing also makes it cheaper to install.

Copper has natural anti-microbial qualities that prevent it from growing algae, bacteria, mold, and other fungi. It’s also fire-proof, which is another significant advantage to all types of metal roofing.

Copper Roof Cost

Copper roofing tends to be one of the more costly options when looking at metal roofing. Metal roofing costs more upfront to purchase and install than tradition asphalt shingles, but it lasts a long time.

However, copper increases the value of your home and will last for a long time. One of the excellent benefits of copper roofing is that the copper itself never really loses its value. From 2009 to 2021, copper has nearly doubled in price, showing how well this metal appreciates.

Roofing prices always vary by location so you can contact a copper roofing company for more information about copper roof installation/replacement and get a free inspection for copper roof service.

Copper Roof Maintenance

Maintenance is low for a copper roof. You may choose to clean it now and then, but you rarely need to do much. Scrubbing or putting too much pressure on the copper can damage its natural shine and patina.

If you choose to do more than hose it down, you can use a natural citrus cleaner and a soft brush to preserve the shine without damaging your roof. This will keep it looking new, but it’s not necessary.

    Freddie and his team were extremely professional and timely. Freddie kept me updated on the progress of the job throughout the whole process. The team knocked out my house in one day which was impressive. We love our new roof and gutters … More it made a huge curb appeal difference! Everything was top notch from the crew to the quality of work. I would highly recommend Rojas Construction to anyone looking for a new roof or gutters.

    We recently used Rojas Roofing for installation of a new roof, gutters, and window screen repair. I cannot say enough good things about Freddy and his team. They were extremely organized, professional, responsive, and meticulous. They … More did a fantastic job on all of the work and were very thorough with cleanup. I would highly recommend Freddy and his team.

    I contacted Rojas to replace my roof. Freddy came out to the house and we discussed available options. It was a great meeting, he already had all the information before he arrived to give me a quote. I already had two other quotes plus … More the insurance allowance. Several things that I noticed, 1. A time frame in which the job will start and will be completed. 2. A 15 year transferable warranty. 3. Communication was great. Was told it would be about 4 weeks (they have up to 6 weeks to start). 4. They were the lowest quote.
    After 26 days, just shy of the 4 weeks, I requested a schedule date. Did not expect the answer (we will be there in 2 days). Was told it would be 4 weeks and they delivered as promised. I had plans to be away during that time and discussed this with them. Freddy assured me that I did not have to be present. He told me he would keep me informed every step of the project. I thought it would take several days to complete since it was a complete removal and install. I was pleasantly surprised to receive a txt message with aerial photos of the roof completely bare. By that late evening the roof was installed. More photos were received with a beautiful new roof. I can not express the true feelings I had. A contractor that deliveries on a promise, keeps you informed even when you are not there, follows up in person (once I returned home) to ensure my satisfaction.
    If you need work on your roof, don't make a decision until you talk with Freddy at Rojas. I am sure once you talk with him, you will not talk with anyone else.

    From start to finish, the very stressful task of getting a roof replaced was much easier than anticipated. Freddy Rojas and his entire team are complete professionals, they walked me through the entire process, including what to expect … More at every step along the way. They took the burden of communicating with the insurance company off of me for the most part, but kept me informed of every conversation that was had and the plan going forward. I could not be more pleased with my experience with Rojas Roofing, I would 100% recommend that anyone needing the services they provide contact them. They will be my go-to for all of my roofing/home exterior needs in the future. Thank you Rojas Roofing!
