Copper & Rheinzink Work
Copper and rheinzink is a building material like no other. It’s 100% recyclable, malleable, doesn’t rust even in coastal areas and adds unique character and value to any property. It also requires little to no maintenance – a benefit that surprises many people.
It is understandable then, that copper and rheinzink are highly desirable materials for roofing. Unlike many roofing materials, copper and rheinzink only gets better with age, maturing to its highly coveted green patina and offering an impressive life span of up to 100 years.
