Exterior Copper Accents Westchester NY
Copper exterior accents have grown in popularity, and we believe that few practical home improvement projects yield the same return on investment as copper gutters or other copper accents can.
Copper is like statement jewelry for your home. The copper details will pull the eye, and warm one’s overall perception of the exterior, elevating the impression your home makes while providing some shine and pop from the curb.
Our team can help add a bright, warm, and practical architectural detail to your home through the design and installation of copper gutters, accents, roofing, or flashing.
There are many reasons to add custom copper elements to your home or business. Not only does Copper impart timeless sophistication and style, but it also offers year-round protection against the elements. Here in Westchester, this is no small benefit; our winters come with a fast freeze-thaw cycle that wreck havoc on standard roofing materials, and our summers can be extremely hot and dry. Two weather extremes that Copper finds no challenge in.
Copper Rain Gutters
Copper rain gutters are a popular choice for homeowners who appreciate their durability and aesthetic appeal. Copper is a durable metal well suited to use as a gutter; resistant to corrosion, copper rain gutters can last for many years with minimal maintenance. Of course, copper gutters are aesthetically pleasing and become even more so over time as copper develops a natural patina, which can add to the beauty of a home.
In terms of installation, copper rain gutters are installed in much the same way as other types of metal rain gutters. Finding a worthy copper gutter installation team is key, as proper installation is crucial for their longevity and effectiveness.
Copper gutter systems must be completely copper, there is no option to mix and match component materials in your copper guttering system. Every element of your gutters must be copper (from end caps to elbows and hangers). Otherwise, you risk staining, corrosion, rust, or worse… causing your gutter system to fail.
Copper Gutter Guards
Copper gutter guards are screens or covers placed over the top of a copper gutter system to prevent debris, such as leaves and twigs, from clogging the system. Copper gutter guards are designed to allow water to flow into the gutter while preventing debris from entering.
Several types of copper gutter guards are available, including mesh screens and solid covers. All of our copper gutter guards are 100% copper.
Every kind of copper gutter guard has its own advantages and disadvantages, and choosing the best option for your specific home and budget is essential.
Copper mesh screens are one of the most popular types of gutter guards. They are made from a mesh material that allows water to flow into the gutter while preventing debris from entering.
Copper mesh screens are easy to install and cost-effective for homeowners who want to protect their gutter system from debris.
Copper Chimney Flashing
Copper chimney flashing works to waterproof the area where a chimney meets the roof. Copper is used frequently as it is durable and long-lasting, resistant to corrosion, and self-sealing. Copper can also be shaped and formed to fit the specific contours of a chimney and roof, ensuring a tight seal.
Copper flashing is also used around skylights, and roof vents, as these areas, are prone to water infiltration.
Copper flashing is an essential component in the waterproofing of roofs and walls, offering protection against water damage and leaks.
When installed correctly, copper flashing provides a long-lasting barrier that prevents water from penetrating into the structure of a building. My team are expert copper flashing installers and can help with repair and replacement work too. Have questions, never hesitate to call. Once flashing leaks start, they rarely, if ever, stop on their own.
Copper Roofing Accents & Metal Roofing
Copper roofing accents are decorative elements added to a roof to enhance its aesthetic appeal. We partner with homeowners in Westchester to design, fabricate and install copper roof cresting, roof vents, and Copper Chimney Caps and Copper dormers.
Roof Cresting: Roof cresting is a decorative element that sits at the ridge of a roof and adds visual interest to the roofline.
Copper cresting comes in various designs, from simple to elaborate, and adds a touch of elegance to the roof.
Copper Dormers: Dormers are roofed structures that project from a sloping roof. Adding a copper roof to a dormer accentuates its presence and adds visual interest to the roofline. Many metal roof accents are not copper. Some are aluminum; common areas where metal roof accents may be used include:
- Bay windows
- Room additions
Metal accents work best on roofs that are separate from the main roof or when used to connect two roofs.
Copper Standing steam metal roof
A copper standing seam metal roof is a type of roofing system that is made from sheets of copper. Standing seam metal roofs are known for their durability and resistance to the elements, and copper is a metal that is naturally resistant to corrosion, making it a popular choice for standing seam metal roofs.
In a standing seam metal roof, the seams between the metal panels are raised above the surface of the panels. This design helps to prevent water from penetrating the roof and protects the roofing system from damage. Copper standing seam metal roofs are typically installed by a professional roofing contractor, who will measure the dimensions of the roof and create a custom design for the roofing system. The copper sheets are then cut to size and formed into the standing seams, which are then attached to the roof deck using special clips and fasteners.
