Pre-Aged Copper Shakes 12 Years After Installation - Wow!

Part of the appeal of premium metals like copper as a roof material is the longevity. Take this beautiful roof we supplied for a residential farmhouse project in Marin County twelve years ago. The owners had two major boxes to tick off with the roofing material.MRN-copper-shakes-roof-Marin-County.png

  • Performance & Longevity

They wanted a permanent roofing solution - something that would require little to no maintenance and look as good in 30, 40, 50 years as it did the day of installation.

  • Architectural Consistency

Between the gambrel roof and the cedar shakes on the exterior of this farmhouse, there was a distinct design aesthetic that needed to be considered.

Pre-aged copper shakes proved to be a functional, beautiful and aesthetically cohesive solution to this design challenge. And twelve years later, time is proving that this roof is just getting better with age!
