What is Copper Roofing?
Copper is a material you likely see in daily life when you dig in your pocket for change. However, it’s a material you probably rarely see on roofs in your neighborhood today. This is not because this material is inferior in any way, but instead is due to the fact that copper is quite expensive. This type of roofing is one of the priciest out there, not only because of the cost of material, but also because of the cost of installation.
If you’re thinking about having a copper roof installed on your property, our team at Action 1 Roofing can help. We understand how important it is to have a team of experts who can install this for you. That is why we work with the best roofers in the area to help our clients with installations and repairs. Whether you would like continuous copper roofing, copper panels, or copper roofing shingles, we’ll be here to help make it happen.
Copper Roofing Costs
As we mentioned earlier, copper roofing is one of the most expensive roofing materials you can find today. However, most agree it’s well worth the cost because the longevity that this material has to offer. The average price you can expect to pay is around $9 to $20 per square foot. A few factors that will impact this price include:
- Size of roof
- Accessibility of roof
- Pitch and slope
- Type of roofing chosen
- Repairs necessary to strengthen roof deck
- Availability/cost of materials
When you work with Action 1 Roofing, we make sure our roofing partners explain the price before any work begins. This will ensure you know if this fits in your budget and what you can expect before you pay. We feel estimates are important because we know how important it is to stick to a budget.
