Copper Bow Window Hoods

Here is another type of bay window copper hood roofs. They are called "bow windows" because of their curved shape. Here is a selection of a few different types.

One has a custom railing around the front. This house is in a historic area, and so this job was specified to be restored to its original condition. The rainbow appearance on the railing is due to the heat of soldering. This appearance goes away as the copper naturally weathers.

Some customers like the look of copper that has turned green. The term for the greenish appearance is "patina". We have the capability to chemically treat new copper to produce the characteristic green patina.
