Copper, due to its malleability and high durability, has been used in buildings for hundreds of years - although it should not be allowed to watershed over aluminium as it is likely to cause rapid degradation of the aluminium window frame.

Copper has been used predominantly for roofing and guttering in the building industry but is used more and more as a cladding on modern architecture. Whilst at Thermosash we have the sheet metal skills in-house to work and fold sheet copper into your designs, it is now also available as a veneer skin over ACM which offers the strength of a bonded sandwich system with a natural metal appearance.

Copper will naturally weather to a blue-green colour called verdigris.
