Copper Diamond Shingles, Lake Tahoe

This project was for a California contractor whose client wanted an interesting but very rigid copper roof design that would stand up well to the heavy snow conditions at spectacular Lake Tahoe. They chose our diamond shingle in solid copper.

The design of this shingle severely limits the ability of snow and ice to "grab" the roof as it moves, thus limiting possible damage common to other types of roofs in snow country. In addition, we worked with the contractor to add a complementary bronze snow retention array, plus a unique concealed electric snow-melt system beneath the copper diamonds. This combination of features will help reduce ice accumulation on the edges as well as slow the rate at which snow accumulation dumps off the roof.
