Copper is a natural product that once installed should give you a highly attractive, worry free element to your home. Steel applications will have maintenance responsibilities, fade issues and design limitations due to the tempering of the material itself. You may wonder if architectural accents are worth the money. Most copper roofing applications and accents will far outlast all other exterior trends and details of the home, therefore making it more than worth the money. In our opinion copper is a far superior material that will stay beautiful for many, many years and be an outstanding resale asset if you ever decide to sell.
