DESCRIPTION:

Historically copper is often the material of choice for roofs, cladding, interiors, and fixtures in church construction. However the perception
that copper can be overly expensive has caused those responsible for some churches to consider other materials of less proven durability. Copper's wonderful natural beauty is enhanced when its life cycle cost is compared to other roofing materials, and it becomes competitive
with other roofing products.
