New Jersey’s #1 Metal Roofing Installer
When it comes to choosing Copper for your roof material, there is one thing you can rely on: copper will not rust, it has no finish to scratch or peel, and it is soft enough to easily cool and weathers naturally to a beautiful, natural green patina. Although considerably more expensive than aluminum and galvalume, Copper is a rare metal that can give your home the look and feel you desire!
Soldered Copper Vs. Seamed Copper
A Standing Seam Copper roof can be soldered or mechanically seamed. At Global Home Improvement, our team of professional installers suggest a mechanically seamed installation because it gives a neater look to your copper roof. In addition, mechanically seamed copper requires absolutely zero cleaning of the seam after installation.
Curved Copper Roofing
Copper is ideal for roofs that have a significant curve within a small distance of the roof. Aluminum or Galvalume have a paint finish and cannot be bent to extreme measures, but copper can. Often, the curved roof on your home is copper that sometimes gets painted over after 70-100 years. If this is the case you should look to replace it with a new copper roof and over time you will have a beautiful patina.
Custom Copper Shingles
In addition to standing seam copper roofs, we also have the fabricating capabilities and installation experience to re-create copper shingles that may have been installed over 80 years ago. If necessary, we will even order pre-patinated copper to match the existing roof.
Since copper oxidizes with other metals it is necessary to install copper gutters with your new copper roof. It’s important to make sure your home is secure with the proper gutters. When choosing copper gutters, we suggest a traditional 5k gutter system, or you can choose a more ornate half-round gutter.
