Process of Copper
Copper goes through a unique process where it creates a protective patina’ layer on the metal. Patina is the final light-green, blue-green color you see after the copper oxidizes. This natural process starts immediately when the copper is exposed to the environment thru natural oxidation. You will start to notice the patina color within the first six months of installation! By nine months, copper will turn into its new, natural, patina color.
Copper is great for flashing because of its strength, pliability, and great resistance against harsh weather. Copper has a very long service life. Since flashings are expensive to replace, copper’s longevity can be viewed as a cost saver. West Side Roofing has experienced installers that work with copper on a weekly basis!
Copper Gutters / Downspouts
Copper is a great choice for gutters and downspouts because it makes strong leak-proof joints. Gutters and downspouts made with copper are made to outlast other metal materials and plastics.
