"Boyle Copper & Zinc Craft Ltd are fully authorised copper installers for KME."
The word copper comes from the Latin word Cyprium named after the island of Cyprus.
Copper is civilisation’s longest used metal. It’s use goes back more than 10,000 years.
Copper can be used for a whole host of different purposes and was originally used simply as a weather barrier and as part of exterior design elements.
It offers beauty, long life and very low maintenance. It is also a highly sustainable material.
Copper naturally patinates
Copper changes its colour from a natural salmon colour to a progression of russet browns, greys and finally a blue – green patina after 15 – 30 years depending on location.
It is possible to speed up the aging process by using Pre – patinated materials such as Tecu copper or Nordic green copper which we supply and install.
Uses of Copper
Copper is a versatile material and is often used for standing seam roofing, flashings and copings, complete rainwater systems, standing seam wall cladding, spires, vaults, domes and various other design effects.
