Escalating insurance and metal roof theft mean traditional building owners are replacing copper roofing:

  • Copper roofs are extremely expensive and can be cost prohibitive to insure or replace.
  • Scrap copper prices have quadrupled in recent years making metal roofs highly attractive to thieves.
  • Copper can be difficult to form around curved shapes or features such as skylights and chimney flues, making 'interesting' roofs problematic (and more expensive).

What are the alternatives?

Our sheet copper roofing alternatives page gives you a great overview of the various copper roof alternatives on the market.

The 'verdi green' coating developed and mastered for the polymer liquid system retains the beautiful green patina effect of copper and offers a range of other benefits and advantages:

  • Flexibility: "Perfect forming" around curves and details. Overcoats pin holed copper roofing, giving a great alternative to sheet copper.
  • Durable and smooth: The system's superb jointless and seamless finish lasts a minimum 15 to 25 years, depending upon the roofing system you choose.
  • Mess-free and fuss-free: No having to wait for materials or special corners and no need to move anyone out.
  • Financial savings, short and long term. Using the liquid polymer alternative to copper roofing means a roof that:
    • can't be stolen
    • is cheaper to install
    • is free to maintain
    • doesn't require insurance
    • Looks fantastic - both 'cutting edge' and traditional (our roofs are even used for conservation areas, churches and historical buildings)
