In this post we shall do a quick walk through of an arched dormer renovation process as well as include a small comparison of various roofing options for this particular project.
For this particular window a new arched crown moulding was handcrafted by our workers in the shop.
Installation followed on site:
Followed by the installation of a custom made copper roof:
- aluminum – more difficult to weld in place
- lead or zinc coated copper – is more expensive, but could be used where a silver or gray color is preferred; also may be more durable
- 20 oz copper – more expensive than 16 oz copper both in material cost and in the cost of labor because it is more difficult to work with
- tin – needs to be treated so it won’t rust
As always, if you have any questions do not hesitate to ask!
