Outdoor Projects Using Copper Shingles

Posted by: Zappone

 

 

 

Yes, we are all shopping and dreaming of a white Christmas, but now is also the perfect time to start planning and designing projects for outdoor spaces!  Zappone Copper Accent Shingles are terrific to use when the project requires just a ‘touch of copper’.  Zappone sells these shingles per piece which makes these projects extremely affordable!

We love the creativity of how this client created a copper wall accent on the exterior of his shop located at a major ski resort. The contractor installed the copper metal shingles on the diagonal, creating a diamond effect.

Imagine the possibilities!!   A border arounda a front door, an insert on a fence, ,,  surrounding a gate ..that is what we love about our accent copper shingles. If you can visualize it, Zappone can help make it happen and at an extremely affordable price.

By the way, if you call our offices and happen to talk to Joe Zappone, mention that you heard he is called ‘the Legend’.  He will love it…Unfortunately , the rest of the office will find him unbearable to live with the rest of the day.  Several years ago, according to Mrs. Joe Zappone. they were sitting on a shuttle bus in Atlanta waiting to be taken back to their hotel at the end of a long day at the National Roofing Show.. a fellow boarded the bus, and recognized Joe, and in a very loud voice said “Joe Zappone!! The Legend in the metal roofing business!!  I can’t believe it is really you!”  Mrs. Zappone notes that he has been hard to live with since then, subtly reminding her about his ‘legend’ status ..

But we digress….start dreaming about creating some powerful ‘curb apeal’ for your home or commercial building.   Our next post will feature a striking ‘water wall’ using copper shingles as the base..it is a stunner, and fairly easy to build!!!  Until then, all of us at Zappone’s wish you all a most joyous holiday and bright New Year!

Classic, Contemporary Mill Finish Aluminum Shingles

Posted by: Zappone

 

We’ve gotten a lot of calls lately concerning our Mill Finish Aluminum Shingle, so here is a photo of a home in Olympia, WA that showcases this product.

The natural Mill Finish aluminum will gradually oxidize over time to a beautiful weathered gray finish.

In the early 1970′s, Zappone carried an avocado green aluminum shingle..  of course, avocado green and harvest gold were the ‘in’ colors.  With the Mill Finish Aluminum Shingle, the roof color will never go out of style, just continue to protect a home for years and years and years to come.

The Mill Finish Aluminum Shingle is certainly one of our favorites around the Zappone office!
