A natural weathering earth tone, our zinc roofing has all of the advantages of copper, with added benefits. From a matte gray finish at installation, the blue-gray patina changes with age for an old-world appeal. With a low environmental impact, this roofing material can last over a hundred years, and then some.
Zinc is a naturally soft, malleable material, easily shaped to incorporate curves and other forms while maintaining its natural strength.
- Durable: Naturally resistant to hail, mold, mildew, insects, and fire
- Strong: Proper installation provides wind resistance and protection
- Beautiful: Aging enhances this natural roofing material’s matte finish
- Manages snow: Sheds snow and ice with metal retention systems available
- Built and Installed to Last: Specially coated copper, this roof will last over 100 years
Considered a “living material,” zinc forms a protective outer layer called the ‘patina’ that self-corrects from scratches. Extremely durable, zinc roofing has been used in Europe for more than 300 years. We partner with Rheinzink and Revere, trusted brands from the old world and the new, to bring durable zinc roofing to southern New England homes.
