Copper has played a significant role in the construction industry for centuries; with its lightweight, durable and aesthetic qualities, it could be the perfect choice for your residential or commercial project. Copper roofing is without question one of the most prestigious of all the types of roofs. Its weathering capability and longevity have been tried and tested throughout centuries and when installed correctly will last a lifetime.
It has been used on medieval buildings and churches for centuries. Although copper is one of the more expensive choices for metal roofing, it’s durability and energy efficiency outweigh the cost.
The life expectancy of copper can exceed 100 years with the correct care and maintenance, copper is also resistant to the elements and thermal changes, keeping maintenance costs relatively low.
For an energy efficient and environmentally friendly roofing solution, copper roofing is highly recommended. As metal reflects heat rather than absorbing it, copper can make it easier to heat and cool your home, reducing your energy costs.
Over the long-term, copper roofing is one of the most cost-effective. A typical copper metal roof can last over 100 years whereas other roofing materials need to be replaced, sometimes more than once, during that time.
A properly installed copper roof is a once-and-once-only job, with little or no maintenance required. Copper gradually develop a durable patina, which reforms if damaged. No chemicals are needed – the roof is resistant to decay and naturally fire proof.
Very formable and ideal for roofing and cladding complicated details and shapes. Copper can be dramatically modern or discreetly traditional.
Copper roofs are much lighter than other roofing materials and require less structural support. There is a consequent reduction in cost throughout the whole project.
We found their work to be excellent. They were well organised, polite and very reasonably priced
Thanks again for spending a Sunday on our roof. It looks so much better.
Really pleased with the professionalism , courteous nature and care and attention Dave and his crew took with our new roof. The results are stunning and we couldn't be happier.
Our family home now has a beautiful new slate roof thanks to The Slate Roofing Company. We have been most impressed with the quality of workmanship of the roof, labour and respect during the process.
Thanks for the great work!
Thanks again for fixing up our roof so quickly!
I recently finished a large extension and restoration of my 1910 federation house in Maroubra. The Welsh slate, valleys and capping were in a bad way. The Slate Roofing Company gave me fantastic advice, were punctual and very easy to deal with. They quoted the price and stuck to the price. Dave Sullens and his team worked incredibly hard to fix my entire roof connecting the old slate roof and new extension colorbond roof. A very professional company. I highly recommend them.
These guys were great! Dave has a team of very polite, hardworking guys who did a great job on our slate roof! We were super happy with it and there hasn't been any problems.
