We were approached by the owner of a very beautiful and unique property in the Midwest with a request for something permanent and distinctive that would complement his architectural theme. With a stream and a pond near his home, he wanted to add on to his building and emphasis an “Old Mill” theme and the roof had to look appropriate and, most importantly, old.Read More

This client's project was an attempt to create a reverential spot in the form of a Chinese tea house on the roof-top space of his urban apartment. He wanted copper roofing for both beauty and longevity. Because tea houses are traditionally economical and intimate in size, the scale of the roof components was a critical factor. After extensive research on the traditional style, the client decided that our S-10 diamond roof shingle in solid copper was the most appropriate size and style. As one of the smaller standard copper roof products on the market, this diamond offered a scale consistent with the size of the tea house, while at the same time offering interesting detail in a low-profile design.

We love working on historical projects, so we jumped at the chance to work with the lovely people from the Varozza Winery in beautiful Napa Valley, CA. We were able to supply a mix of new and reclaimed copper shingles for their picturesque barn, and here's what the customers had to say when all was said and done:
This is a beautiful copper roof system in California that blended solid copper shingles left shiny and new with copper shingles that were hand-treated to achieve a patina.
We routinely say that the best advertising is word of mouth, which is why we're always happy to provide references to potential customers and post reviews from new customers right on our website.

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 picture of a barn in a vineyard illustrates something that I find rather interesting - the rates at which copper changes in different locations.
