Copper Roofing

Professional Copper Roofing Contractors

copper roofing home Detroit Roofers know that copper is one of the most interesting materials for metal roofing services. It stands out because of how bright its color is, and it is one of the most beautiful metal roofing options. Copper roofing is bright and bold, and people choose it for residential roofing and commercial roofing because it looks different from other materials.

A copper roof looks great from the outside and is a great investment. Copper roofing can be reused, just like other types of metal roofing. But if you take it off and sell it, it’s worth almost as much as you paid for it. This means you won’t lose your investment, even if you decide to change your roof later.

What’s Copper?

Copper is a metal that is shiny and reddish brown. It is an element on the periodic table and can be found in nature. One of the best things about metal roofing is that it can be recycled and it can be made again and again. It’s also good for the environment.

Copper is soft and easy to shape, just like many other types of metal roofing. It can be shaped into any design you want, so it can look like brick, tile, shingles, and much more when used on a roof.

Copper is beautiful and strong, so it’s no surprise that it makes a great roofing material. It can keep your residence warm during the winter months and cool during the summer, just like aluminum.

Different Types of Copper Roofing

Copper roofing looks great on any building and can be shaped into any design you want. However, there aren’t that many different kinds of copper roofing, and each one is used for a different thing.


Copper roofing is made and cut so that it fits the job perfectly. It is put together without seams, joints, or any other breaks. It’s the most expensive choice because making and installing it to exact specifications takes the most time and work.

Copper Panels

Copper panels are cut to standard widths and put together using seams and joints. During installation, the seams are sometimes crimped together and sometimes welded. It costs less than continuous copper roofing and works best in a business setting.

Copper Shingles

Copper shingles are cheap and can be put on a roof just like any other shingles. To keep them from reacting with other metals, they are held in place with fasteners. They look great on any house because they are classy and stately.

Pros of Having a Copper Roof

Copper is a good material for roofs because it looks good from the outside. Its bright copper color makes your house stand out from a distance. It raises the value of your home and gives new buyers peace of mind that they are getting a strong roof.

Copper is strong and lasts a long time. It can stand up to the strongest hail and wind and doesn’t grow mildew. Copper roofing will last at least fifty years if you check it often and try to keep it in good shape.

Copper roofing is very light, so it puts less stress on your home’s frame, which is very important when it snows a lot like it does every winter in Michigan. Copper roofs are made of light materials.

Copper is naturally anti-microbial, which means that algae, bacteria, mold, and other fungi can’t grow on it. It can’t catch on fire, which is another big plus for all types of metal roofing.

Cost of Copper Roofing

Copper roofing is usually one of the more expensive metal roofing options. Metal roofing costs more than traditional asphalt shingles to buy and put on, but it lasts longer.

But copper makes your home more valuable and will last for a long time. The copper itself never really loses its value, which is a great thing about copper roofs. Copper’s price has almost doubled from 2009 to 2019, which shows how well this metal appreciates.

Prices for roofing always depend on where you live, so you can contact a copper roofing company to learn more about copper roof installation/replacement and get a free estimate for copper roof repair.

Taking Care of Copper Roofing

A copper roof is easy to take care of. You might decide to clean it once in a while, but you don’t usually have to do much. Copper can lose its shine and patina if you scrub it or put too much pressure on it.

If you want to do more than just hose it down, you can keep the shine without hurting the roof by using an orange-based cleaner and a soft brush. It will keep looking new, but you don’t have to do this.

During the lockdown, we chose to get a new roof and gutters. We went with Detroit Roofers, even though their quote was a bit higher, because they were really clear about the materials and the high standard of work they promised. Totally worth it and we're really happy with the result. Just last week, during a huge rainstorm, we noticed a leak from one of the gutters. We got in touch with them, and David from their team came by today. He's awesome, really cares about his work and the reputation of Detroit Roofers. We've recommended them before and we'll do it again – top-notch quality all the way.

The owners are really approachable and know their stuff. Everything went super smoothly, and they were cool with fixing our roof while we were away, which was a huge help. Really enjoyed dealing with them. They're quick, do a great job, and it's awesome that they're a local family-run business. Definitely recommend them.

We reached out to several roofing companies for quotes, but Detroit Roofers was the only one that got back to us quickly. We really valued their clear communication and the quality of their work. I'd definitely suggest them for any roofing projects. Plus, they completed our job sooner than expected.

Detroit Roofers just came by to give us an estimate after a branch made a hole in our roof. David showed up a bit early, super professional, and said he'd give us a couple of options to consider. But what really impressed me was that he went the extra mile by finding some temporary materials in his truck to cover the hole better than our makeshift trash bag solution. This kind of effort has us leaning towards choosing them, no matter the cost. It's clear they value quality, and that's the kind of service that earns loyalty.

Our office got a new roof by Detroit Roofers and we're all impressed. It’s no longer leaking all over the place and it’s a safer work environment. Their commercial roofing service is solid and professional. Highly recommended!
I was dreading the whole roof repair process, but Detroit Roofers made it so easy. Really glad I chose them. After getting a few quotes, went with Detroit Roofers for our asphalt roofing repair. Best decision ever. The roof looks fantastic.
