For centuries, louvers have been installed on roofs and walls as a way to keep the house cool during intense climates throughout the year. Louvers work as a static (non-moving) ventilation system that allows air to circulate into the attic without allowing the penetration of rain or other elements (including critters and bugs). With proper installation, you can significantly reduce the amount of water and bug damage done to your home.
Reason #1 – Reduce Utility Bills
By providing adequate roof ventilation, you can easily reduce your home or commercial building’s cooling bills, and extend the life of your roofing material (shingles, cedar shake, etc.). By reducing heat buildup in the attic during severe summer temperatures, and snow build up during the cold months, louvers provide less demand on the rafters and trusses. Additionally, a quality louver system will prevent ice dams and roof rot during the cold winter months.
Reason #2 – Eliminates Moisture, Reduces Mold/Mildew
More than just creating a level of comfort for your family, roof and wall louvers play a vital function in preserving the integrity of the structure, to make it easier to warm in the winter, and cool in the summer. By eliminating moisture build up, louvers can significantly reduce mildew and mold problems that would likely decrease the value of your home that would likely cause significant damage to its structural integrity.
Reason #3 – Copper Ages Beautifully
Copper louvers add an aesthetic beauty to the home that is unsurpassed with any other metals. Creating a beautiful patina over time, copper ages well and remained attractive over the years. It adds significant value and improvement to the overall appearance of your home’s façade. Unlike plastic and galvanize metals, copper louvers are extremely durable and will last far longer than any other material you could choose.
Reason #4 – Eco-Friendly Material
If you are energy conscious, having your louvers constructed of copper will allow you to reduce the carbon footprint of your selection. As a 100% recyclable material, copper is an excellent choice for your exterior’s decor. Adding a touch of tasteful sophistication, it also enhances the level of protective performance that simply cannot be matched with other materials.
Reason #5 – Superior Beauty and Function
Although the upfront cost of copper can be significant, the overall fashionable look of a patina copper cannot be imitated, in both appearance and functionality. With its beautiful architectural styling, and eco-friendly properties, it simply the best choice you can make for your home.
