thinking of standing seam copper...

goldenapplesSeptember 6, 2008

and I just can't seem to find anyone who knows about large-scale copper work. The guys I spoke with have done a few gable awnings, but I'm thinking I might want my entire roof (750 sq.ft plus or minus, not too steep) done in copper, if its not ridiculous. How should I know whats reasonable to pay for that?

You could have someone estimate the job in Pac-Clad metal or something similar. Its basically a factory painted metal. They make all sorts of colors that look good but arent as costly as the real thing. Copper is WAY too costly to do an entire roof unless you plan on spending a small fortune:P
