Copper

Copper has been used as an architectural cladding element for hundreds of years. Initially a bright metallic, copper reinvents its color as it patinas until its ultimate greenish verdigris forms. This patina serves as a protective coating affording the material its excellent corrosion resistance and durability. Copper also possesses impressive anti-microbial properties, making it ideal for use in interior applications.

Copper roofing, copper wall cladding, copper gutters and other copper products are extremely eco-friendly building products. Although emissions are a common concern when evaluating the viability of the use of certain building materials, this isn’t the case with copper products. Copper wall paneling, copper gutters and downspouts, and copper roofing applications do not emit pollutants into the air.

MetalTech-USA copper products designed to specification can meet multiple design challenges in the areas of durability, sustainability and flexibility. In an initial consultation with a MetalTech-USA representative, the specific project needs and design requirements can be discussed further for your copper roofing, copper rainwater or copper wall cladding building project.
