Our local specialties include:
A copper roof is a distinctive roof! It adds greatly to the resale value of your property. At approximately 144 pounds per square, Copper is lightweight which means less structural reinforcement is needed for the roof. Compare this to 350-750 lbs. per square from many other roofing materials.
Copper is affordable when compared to materials such as slate, tile or cedar. When you compare the lifetime costs of a copper roof it is one of the least expensive materials available. It is environmentally friendly and can achieve a class “A” fire rating.
Patina change refers to the tarnish that forms on the surface of copper, as a result of age and exposure; the rate of patina change is dependent on your climate. It gives copper that unique green look, and it also provides a protective layer that would otherwise cause it to be damaged by weathering. This example of patina change from 1-11 years is for a seaside environment. A roof inland could take 3 times longer to achieve the green-like color. However, copper can be treated to accelerate the patina process. It depends on the client’s preference.
Copper can be used for both residential and commercial buildings to give a distinct look. The possibilities are endless!
It is the strongest standing seam roof and is highly wind and hail resistant. It is lightweight at 1.45 pounds per square foot. Steel is class “A” fire rated. You can choose from a variety of colors. Use one color or combine several for a unique look!
The lightest of all metal materials, Aluminum is less expensive and a good alternative to copper, costing about 60-65% of a copper roof. It’s great for a salt-air environment, as it does not rust. There are many great colors to choose from or combine for an architecturally custom look!
Zinc is for the customer who wants a distinctive look in a variety of natural colors. Roofing is maintenance free and will last up to 100 years.
Chimney flashing and counter-flashing is another field we specialize in. Roof leaks may start to develop due to improper flashing techniques by the previous contractor(s). Brick and stone chimneys are usually challenging for roofers and often times the source for leaks.
Fortunately, experienced professionals at Greenwich Roofs can design and execute a properly flashing detail to suit your home and can also address any related masonry flaws or deficiencies that may be contributing to your leak. We are a one-stop solution to all your roofing problems!
