Philadelphia, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/09/2013 -- C.R. Thompson is pleased to announce that they are now installing copper roofs on all residential homes. Copper roofs host many benefits to a traditional asphalt roof and C.R. Thompson has the experience, tools, and training to install a copper roof.
A copper roof is very beautiful and will increase the resale value of a home. If a home has a copper roof, then buyers will assume the rest of the home is equally as unique and beautiful. Copper roofs not only add curb appeal to a home, but they are very durable and strong as well. They can last up to 50 years with minimal maintenance. Copper is extremely resistant to fire and can easily withstand harsh elements such as hail. A copper roof is also resistant to mildew, making it a great choice for heavily shaded homes that may be prone to mildew. As far as weight, it is one of the lightest roofing materials available, which is a great benefit for the structure of a home. Many roofing materials such as slate, tile, or wood shakes can add a significant amount of weight to a home’s structure and the home will need reinforcement to ensure it can handle the extra weight.
A copper roof is also very energy efficient. A metal roof will reflect light away from the home, allowing the homeowners to better control the inside temperature of the home without any added heat. Of course, there are a couple of disadvantages to a copper roof, but both are very minor. The only drawbacks to a copper roof are noise and a little maintenance. When it rains, the homeowners will be able to hear it. The sound of rain on a metal roof is much louder than on any other roofing surface. Also, when the weather changes, a copper roof will expand and contract which can loosen the fasteners. C.R. Thompson can easily repair any fasteners on a copper roof, so this is not a major cause for concern.
