The advantages of copper roofing.

Copper roofing offers several advantages, making it a popular choice for a wide range of architectural styles and building types across Sydney and Australia wide.


Often lasting well over 100 years with proper maintenance, a copper roof can have an exceptionally long lifespan. This is due to copper’s inherent durability and resistance to corrosion, rust, and degradation from environmental factors.

Low maintenance

It does not require painting or sealing, and its natural patina helps protect it from weathering over time. Periodic inspections are typically all that’s needed to ensure the continued performance of a copper roof.

Charm and character

Initially, copper has a bright, shiny finish that gradually weathers to a beautiful, greenish patina over time, giving buildings a unique and timeless look. This natural weathering process adds character and charm to the structure making copper roofing prized for its distinctive appearance.


Copper roofing is relatively lightweight compared to some other roofing materials, reducing structural stress and the need for additional support. This can be beneficial for both new construction and retrofitting projects.

Fire resistant

Copper is a non-combustible material, making copper roofing inherently fire-resistant. This can provide added safety and peace of mind, particularly in areas of Australia prone to bushfires or where fire-resistant building materials are required by building codes.


Copper is a highly sustainable roofing material. It is fully recyclable and has a low environmental impact compared to some other roofing materials. Additionally, its long lifespan means less frequent replacement and reduced waste over time.
