Use Copper Dormers In Your Home’s Addition
While dormers can be found in a home’s original construction, they are most commonly used in home additions and renovations. A dormer is built off of a sloping roof or platform and generally provides extra space inside the home. By adding a dormer window
, you can increase your living space, and it is a fashionable way to provide extra light and ventilation. Dormers are often used in loft-construction and are a great way of converting an attic into a livable space. With this simple conversion, you can also increase the value of your home.
There are several types of dormers that are available to choose from. Depending on your needs, you will want to make sure you make the best selection in both style and material. Aside from functional needs, your choice of dormer should also be visually cohesive with the flow of your structure. For example, some people find that a flat-roofed dormer
is more suitable to their home’s appearance then a gable-fronted dormer
in which the ridges meet at the top to form a doghouse effect. Copper Works Canada
can help you select the proper dormer for your needs.
Practical and Stylish
There are many benefits to selecting copper as the material to construct your dormer. Canadian homes are subject to drastic elements such as heavy snow, hail, toxic rain and debris due to strong winds. Copper can withstand the elements of the Canadian climate better then any other material. By choosing copper, you can rest assured that your investment is safe. Copper is resistant to rust and corrosion. It is durable and resilient. Copper has a lifespan of up to 100 years, thereby removing the hassle and extra costs that would have otherwise gone towards repairs or replacement.
In addition, copper is the most visually pleasing choice when it comes to selecting materials for your dormer. It begins with a rich, bronze hue, and matures into a beautiful green-blue patina. Copper can be mended and fabricated in a number of different fashions. This allows Copper Works Canada
