Copper Plated Roofing Material


(1998)

I am looking for copper plating to use as roofing in one style of butterfly house. I need a wholesaler or discount house for small businesses.

You may be able to find the copper plated sheet you are seeking, Lou, but my first impression would be that if I were doing it I would either do it in a premium fashion with real copper sheet, or I would do it less expensively with aluminum sheet painted to look like copper -- because copper plated steel sheet will be neither 'real', nor cheap, nor corrosion resistant.

I visited Englert Corp. in Perth Amboy, NJ once and saw their coil coated aluminum which they offer in both a bright copper color that looks like new copper, and a green color that looks like aged copper.
