    If you've ever wondered whether your old roof will make it through another winter season, you're not alone. Here's how to answer that question.

  • Copper Tiles for a Coastal Florida Application
    One of our customers from Florida sent us this photo the other day of
    our copper tiles being prepared for a client of his on a coastal residence there. He was making sure the client liked the level of aging before the tiles were installed on the house.

  • Metal Roofing on a Mid-Century Home
    This metal roofing project features

They not only wanted the very unique appearance of our copper tiles, but its concealed fastener feature made it a perfect solution. However, there were other issues that needed solving:

  • Metal Roofs - Perfect for Northern Nevada!

    Metal roofing is more popular than ever, and even with the price being higher than “regular” composition shingles, the popularity continues to grow. What’s more, metal roofs come in more styles and types than any other type of roof material, and they can complement almost any architectural theme.

  • Where to Begin When It's Time for a New Roof

    Once you realize it's time for a new roof, where should begin? A new roof is a big purchase, and like other large home upgrades, it's sensible to begin with a bit of research. It quickly becomes clear, however, that there is no shortage of information out there. So how do make a final decision when you're ready to purchase that new roof?

  • Can You Fake the Patina on a Copper Roof?

    I’m regularly asked about our pre-aged copper roof products, and it's usually someone requesting a particular shade of green or turquoise after viewing a roofing photo they’ve discovered on our website. They tend to ask whehter you can you fake the patina on a copper roof.
