Copper

copper1.jpg For centuries, Architects have chosen copper for protecting commercial and institutional structures. Copper has given entirely satisfactory service on roofs, gutters and other weatherproofing constructions, with outstanding resistance to the assault of corrosion ordinarily caused by exposure to the atmosphere. For this reason more and more home owners and builders are choosing copper.

Copper roofing, first applied 2,500 years ago and still widely specified by leading architects for commercial and institutional buildings, is growing in popularity for private homes. Taken with its beauty, durability and corrosion resistance, more and more homeowners are beginning to demand copper roofing.

The decorative natural protective coating of a blue-green patina characterizes many of the older copper roofs, statues and other copper surfaces.

The copper roofs of many ancient cathedrals, the Statue of Liberty, and the dome of the South Carolina Capitol are all covered with a green patina finish. Patina is actually the product of copper corrosion on exposure to the weather.

The chemicals in the atmosphere produce patinas in a process that require at least five years in an industrial or coastal environment and many more in rural areas.
