A dome is a classic architectural feature resembling the upper half of a sphere. These can be constructed of various materials and have been around since prehistoric days. Antebellum Roofworks Co Inc specializes in building exterior copper designs and architectural copper work, such as a copper dome roof or copper turret roof dome.
The first domes were used by the ancient Romans and have been found throughout the ancient Middle East. They have been constructed of a wide variety of materials, from stone to wood to metal. A copper dome is very elegant and eye catching. The copper architecture provides a stunning and classic look that integrates nicely with almost any style or type of roof.
In an era where sustainable energy is important, copper is also a green building material. It is durable, long lasting, and requires little to no maintenance. Antebellum Roofworks Co Inc can fabricate a custom copper dome for you using copper tile roofing or standing seam copper roof panels.
Varieties of Dome
A true dome is hemispherical in shape, appearing like the top half of a ball. Many domes, however, use a more conical style. Domes work well along a roofline, on a gazebo or as a turret roof dome or on top of a tower. In addition, some domes feature a simple or ornate decorative plate, cupola or ball finial perched on top. We make and carry a beautiful handmade diamond shaped copper tile that is ideal for domes. We also have the capability to fabricate custom panels from copper or just about any other metal. Our roll forming machine can handle a broad variety of metal tiles.
