Copper offers a number of different benefits and its beautiful color can provide curb appeal to your home and leave a lasting impression with guests.
Copper can be used for a variety of applications outside a home, including gutters, roofing, weathervanes and other accents.
In addition to its beauty, other benefits of copper include:
- its durability: Copper can last up to 50 years or more with regular maintenance. Copper is highly resistant to fire, mildew and hail.
- its weight: because copper is light-weight material, it won’t put the stress on your home like other, heavier metals.
- its efficiency: copper does a great job reflecting sunlight and its heat, allowing you to better control your heating and cooling costs.
And copper, when left to age naturally, results in a stunning rustic green patina over time. (There are ways to minimize the colorization, if you prefer the clean copper color for your project.)
