Copperwork is an art form that few in the industry can understand or accomplish. We utilize time tested and proven coppersmithing methods in association with the governing trade standards, strict specifications and our experience with restoration work. One of the surest ways to determine if a system can stand the test of time is to work on old buildings that have been around for over 100 years. Taking apart and restoring roofs and copperwork provides us a competitive advantage in our understanding of proven application methods that will stand the test of time. Copperwork and architectural sheet metal in general must be aesthetically pleasing, and careful attention to detail is required to ensure that a installation will stand up to mother nature in the long term.
Often times consumers and builders do not compare the workmanship with the costs associated with a quotation. To do it right with metal work takes time, and to sacrifice the quality is only incurring maintenance costs at a future date that often far exceed the cost associated with having the work performed by a competent firm.

Copperwork is a generic term which can be applied to a large number of coppersmithing activities. In general a coppersmith is a specialty sheet metal worker who has a specialization in a very unique and traditional skill set.
