Top-Rated Copper Roofing Experts Serving Maryland

Copper roof company Maryland

When it comes to metal roofing, copper is one of the most unique materials. Its brilliant color makes it stand out, and it’s among the more splendid options in metal roofing. Copper roofing is bold and brilliant, and it’s chosen in residential settings because of the special aesthetics it provides.

A copper roof gives you curb appeal and excellent resale value. Just like other metal roofing, copper roofing is recyclable. However, it’s worth almost as much as you paid for it if you were to strip it off and resell it, meaning you’ll never lose your investment, even if you decide to change your roofing solution later.

Certified Inc. Roofing also specializes in other metal roof types from aluminum, standing seam, corrugated to steel roofs.

What is Copper?

Copper is a shiny, reddish-brown metal. It’s an element on the periodic table and is found naturally in the earth. One of the most appealing things about metal roofing is its recyclable properties and the fact that it’s replenishable, sustainable, and eco friendly.

Copper is soft and highly malleable, like many other metal roofing types. It can be shaped into any design you want, so when using it on a roof, it can be made to look like brick, tile, shingles, and much more.

Copper is known for its beauty and its strength, so it’s no wonder it makes a wonderful roofing material. It has a high thermal conductivity, so like aluminum, it can keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

Types of Copper Roofing

While copper roofing looks great on any building and can be molded into any design you want, there aren’t many types of copper roofing, and each one has its own intended purposes.

Continuous

Continuous copper roofing is manufactured and cut precisely for the job. It’s installed without joints, seams, or other breaks. It’s the most expensive option because it involves the most time and effort to manufacture to exact specifications and install.

Copper Panels

Copper panels are cut in standard widths and installed with joints and seams. Sometimes the seams are crimped together, and other times they’re welded together during installation. It’s less expensive than continues copper roofing and best used in an Certified Inc. Roofing setting.

Copper Shingles

Copper shingles are low in cost and can be installed like other shingles. They’re secured in place with fasteners to prevent a reaction during contact with other metals. They’re elegant, stately, and look great on any home.

Advantages of a Copper Roof

One of the primary benefits of using copper as a roofing material is its curb appeal. Its bright copper color shines brilliantly from afar, making your home stand out. It increases your home’s resale value and assures new buyers that they are getting a sturdy roof.

Copper is very strong and durable. It can withstand the strongest hail and wind and is resistant to mildew. Copper roofing will last for fifty years or more if you inspect it regularly and strive to maintain it.

Copper roofing is very lightweight, so it minimizes the stress you put on your home’s frame, which is critically important during heavy snowfall like we see in Columbia every winter. The lightweight composition of copper roofing also makes it cheaper to install.

Copper has natural anti-microbial qualities that prevent it from growing algae, bacteria, mold, and other fungi. It’s also fire-proof, which is another significant advantage to all types of metal roofing.

Copper Roof Cost

Copper roofing tends to be one of the more costly options when looking at metal roofing. Metal roofing costs more upfront to purchase and install than tradition asphalt shingles, but it lasts a long time.

However, copper increases the value of your home and will last for a long time. One of the excellent benefits of copper roofing is that the copper itself never really loses its value. From 2009 to 2021, copper has nearly doubled in price, showing how well this metal appreciates.

Roofing prices always vary by location so you can contact a copper roofing company for more information about copper roof installation/replacement and get a free estimate for copper roof service.

Copper Roof Maintenance

Maintenance is low for a copper roof. You may choose to clean it now and then, but you rarely need to do much. Scrubbing or putting too much pressure on the copper can damage its natural shine and patina.

If you choose to do more than hose it down, you can use a natural citrus cleaner and a soft brush to preserve the shine without damaging your roof. This will keep it looking new, but it’s not necessary.

    By the time I connected with Jay from Certified, I had already been through a few roofing companies. Jay was not only friendly, but very patient with a first time homeowner such as myself. Certified had by far the best warranty to offer us, and was willing and eager to work with our insurance in order to cover it. We had to delay a few times due to weather (can't be helped!), but the office was always very communicative. The roof took 1.5 days to complete, and the end result was amazing. We had quite the extensive replacement job, and these guys were top notch. They replaced it, and fixed errors from the previous roof installation along the way. A couple days after our install was complete, a huge rain/wind storm rolled in. Not only did we not hear the rain, but none of it got in, much to our relief! Thanks, Jay and the whole team at Certified!

    Steve, the owner, of Certified Roofing gave us a reasonable estimate to replace our roof. Our house is 3 stories in the back and one story in the front with 2 skylights and a change in roof line in the front. There is a front door overhang that is also roofed--so not an easy installation. The choices of shingles was excellent.The crew arrived on time, was very professional, and did excellent work. They were led by Javier who was exceptional. They cleaned up beautifully. When a small problem occurred, the repair was made and Steve came out. This was last October. This week, 5 months later, we asked Steve if they could come out to reinstall a gutter guard that blew loose. They offered to do the job at no cost to us. We recommend them without hesitation. They care about their work and offer a great value for roofing.

    Great work and great service. Caught Jay giving an estimate to a neighbor and snagged his information.Jay initially walked around the house to get a general feel for the roof and scheduled a formal estimate meeting a few days later. Jay was incredibly thorough and took down all the needed information. Afterwards he sat us down to explain the exact process, the materials of construction they would use, why they chose to use them, and their function for the roof. As new homeowners, and knowing our roof was incredibly rough shape and well past its lifespan, we greatly appreciated this. Contracts were signed that week and the work was scheduled less than a week out. Day 0 was material delivery, Day 1 was the complete roof installation, Day 2 were new gutters. Everything looked incredible and made the house look brand new. Very happy with Certified Inc. and plan to use them for any new work in the future.

    I highly recommend Certified Inc. Roofing. Steve personally came to my home to inspect the roof with me and explained to me how they would install the new roof. Easy to select roof color and easy to get quote for replacement. Day of, crew arrived on time and worked steady & hard all day. Finished and cleaned up everything all in one day. The crew were nice, polite and professional. They delivered on everything promised and exceeded our expectations! Definitely highly recommended them!!!

    I had a new house roof with new gutters and then later needed repairs and new gutters on 2 horse barns , plus leaf guards on the house one side. Quotes were similar to another company but overall a better deal.Steve is excellent to deal with; there were a some problems but they were rectified very quickly, and he was very helpful in the process. The crews were very hardworking , and wasted little time even when extra supplies were needed as efficiently arranged for them so saving a delay.Delighted with the outcome, no worry about rain, hail , snow or winds on the buildings.

    Very pleased with the work of Certified Inc. I recently acquired a historic 1908 home and had all windows replaced. They look great, inside and out and flow seamlessly with the historic home. Craftsmanship is on point. I only had one issue with a simple sill that was not sloped properly, but these things happen in an old home, and Certified fixed it. Would recommend!

    We replaced a 18 year old cedar shake roof with asphalt shingles. Extremely happy the way in which Certified managed the job. From promptly providing an estimate to installation the project was completed within 2 weeks ! The installation took 2 days. The crew did a great job with installation and clean up. I chose Certified as they provided with CertainTeed material and their pricing was within our budget. Will highly recommend Certified, Inc .

    Steve and Jay came out the day after we called to do the inspection and give us a quote. Within days of us letting them know that our homeowners association approved our application to replace the roof and gutters, they had us on the schedule for installation. Roof took one day and the gutters done a day later. Top quality materials and workmanship all around. The next door neighbors also remarked about how efficient the installers were and how they didn't cause any disruption in the neighborhood. They also did a fantastic job cleaning up; no loose nails or other materials left behind. A well done job all around.

    My experience with Certified was nothing but positive. I had a severe roof leak and Certified was one of many companies to provide quotes. Jay came out for my estimate and walked me through everything. He even gave me some advice and help with making temporary fixes for an upcoming storm. After going through all my quotes, Certified was the clear winner. They scheduled my installation and got everything done exactly when they said they would. It looks great and I am super happy.

    We are in love with our new roof. The color was spot on and the gutters are amazing! My husband and I are thrilled to not have to deal with cleaning gutters and we are hoping to see improvement with our attic venting when the season changes. (Currently it's too hot to even think about going in the attic.) Removal and installation of the roof took less than 8 hours and the gutters were installed 2 days later. Juan was amazing with being a stickler for the details. He was gracious enough to come back out and fix a slight issue within a very reasonable amount of time. Now our house is perfect. Thank you so much!
