Based in Glasgow, Base Metal Roofing covers Scotland, North England and beyond, working alongside main contractors, local builders and private clients successfully for over 25 years. The quality of our work is not only down to our service and craftsmanship but also the materials we use...
Base metals such as Copper and Zinc have been used successfully in roofing for over 2000 years. Inherent natural properties of base metals form a patina (oxide layer) that protects itself from erosion to external elements. This natural process, together with modern material manufacturing and installation techniques now combine to give a long lasting, low maintenance result. Tried and tested on the most complex roofs which push the boundaries of design or prevailing in extreme locations.
Metal can be used for both residential and commercial projects. The same materials can be used on both the roof and outside walls of a building.
Material choice and finish is extensive and governed by location, cost, aesthetics or architect.
