Single Ply Membranes

With its natural tendency to form a protective green patina, copper roofing provides a prominent visual accent in our built environment. It is particularly distinctive against the occluded skies of our temperate climate. Copper is relatively expensive but it does have beneficial characteristics. This has meant that its use, historically, has typically been reserved for high profile buildings. During the 19th and 20th centuries the price of copper fluctuated dramatically, making it periodically available for use on a wider range of building types.

The use of sheet metal in general as a roofing material allows a near continuous water-resistant covering with a minimum of joints between sheets. It enables roof slopes to be covered at lower pitches than would be possible using other roof coverings and it can be used to provide a smooth surface over curved architectural forms. We will fit copper sheeting to all conversions, repair and replace defected sheets.
