This is a copper roof photo that was taken mid-installation during a very beautiful and unusual project: a copper-roofed turret for a custom home in the San Francisco peninsula area. The client, a retired architect building his "dream home," wanted something spectacular and unusual to finish off his very distinctive new home, and chose our copper diamond roof shingle - wise choice! The shingles were then individually treated with a special solution to mimic decades of exposure so they'd display that special "patina" that is unique to old copper roofs.
This was a very interesting re-roofing project in which to be involved. The original black-painted wood shingles on this mansard were past their useful lifespan, plus the house was on the edge of a ravine so fire was always a concern. The owners wanted to do something permanent and distinctive with the mansard because it's an extremely prominent architectural element. They chose to have us fabricate new standing seam panels and supply our elegant copper diamond shingle for the mansard over the front door. We also designed and fabricated the custom copper gutter system for the same area.
