Zinc roofing

Zinc is by far the most common type of metal roof and cladding we install. It is an ever popular choice with clients and architects because of the high design specification it can achieve.

There is not a zinc roof we’ve worked on that doesn’t look stunning when complete, we relish the opportunity working with architects to achieve unique visions. Zinc is available in many different finishes and colours to produce a vast range of finishes, all produced at the manufacturing stage (sample books available on request).

We also supply and install matching zinc gutters & downpipes. All the zinc we use is supplied by two of the biggest manufacturers; VMzinc & Rheinezinc, who provide materials of the highest quality.

Copper roofing

Coppers popularity stems from its durability, corrosion resistance, ability to form complex shapes and its historic appearance. It has been utilised by craftsmen for centuries to create beautiful and long lasting building systems. More recently copper has been used in a much wider range of buildings in many different forms. For example, the copper clad wall is a modern design element for both indoor and outdoor environments.

Part of the allure of copper is the array of colours it can display, from a bright metallic colour to nearly black, and its final oxidised colour of green patina. Russet, plum, mahogany and ebony as well as the final green patina are colours that can be visible during the patination process of bright/natural copper.

We use copper products from KME, it is possible to get copper off the shelf in pre weathered mid stage known as TECU OXID, and the final Green Patina stage, this product is called TECU PATINA. KME also offer other Copper alloys within their KME TECU Range which consists of TECU GOLD, TECU BRONZE, TECU BRASS, TECU ZINN.
