Metal Roofing


A Technique Spanning Centuries

Historical Roofing Process

Metal roofing has a history that extends many centuries. In the early part of this country’s history, many important buildings were roofed with lead, copper, and tin (tin-plated iron). Today, the options for metal roofing for historical buildings include similar choices. Lead is still used, though mostly in Europe. Copper has stood the test of time, and is workable in many different applications. Terne-coated stainless steel (tin and zinc coated 304 stainless steel) can be used where corrosion from salt or run-off of copper might be a concern.

From Our Clients

I would like to thank you personally for the wonderful job your company did in replacing my roof. My wife and I are the fifth generation to live in my family’s home which was built by my great-great grandfather in 1890. I took great care and research in finding a roofing company that would do the same excellent workmanship that was originally done over 100 years ago – and I can proudly say that I was not disappointed in the least!
