The original curved bay was Tin and stayed in place for over 60 years. This was primarily due to it being coated with asphalt . It leaked and caused wood damage and interior damage to the old plaster ceiling. When installing these types of tricky roofs it’s best to use material that will last a very long time. We oftentimes recommend copper or lead-coated copper if a pewter color is desired.
HKC hand-made this curved metal roof starting with nothing more than flat copper sheets. Each panel was bent to include two standing ribs. Our skilled technicians shrank the metal until it conformed to the curvature of the roof. Once all the panels were fitted, we rolled the seams two times to create a roof that is locked together. This traditional metal roofing technique is referred to as “Double-Lock” standing seam. You can still find this style of metal roofing in service on many homes built at the beginning of the 20th century.

“A very thorough, neat, and professional job! Well done. “
“Very pleased with your work and your staff. Neighbors told us how well the job was handled while we were not at home. We have recommended you to everyone.”
“My gratitude for the fabulous job on our roof. Neighbors were jealous that their crews threw scrap on bushes and lawns, while your crew filled a trailer from above. At the end of a 12 hour first day, everything was clean and tidy. Also, your salesman’s involvement did not end after i signed the deal.”
“The boys did an excellent job for me. The salesman was great to do business with, and a big help to us. Keep up the high standards.”
“I have hired HKC for several projects. Our school and church roofs were over 30 years old and Henry and his crew have been fantastic to work with as we have put a replacement plan in place. They are always timely and very responsive when we have had minor problems with the old roofs.
I highly recommend HKC for any roofing project.”
