For the barrel roof features on the front and rear porches, we elected to use copper as the finish material for its durability, since it is a lifetime product, and for the special look it acquires over time. The copper here is being installed on the rear porch, which overlooks the C&D Canal. Copper is recyclable and slowly develops a “patina” through an oxidation process.
The copper sheets are installed in rows, and each edge is crimped and clamped to the preceding row to create a seam.
G. Fedale Roofing and Siding were our subcontractors for installing the copper roof. Here, Nino and his brother are installing the copper roof, which we are very pleased with.
Here, you can see the copper roof on the front porch.
You can see the patina process has already started. Note how the copper roof closer to the home that is covered by the roof overhang has less patina than the rest of the roof, which is more exposed to the elements.
