Copper & Zinc Roofing and Wall Systems
Zinc was first used as a building material in Paris, France, in the 1800s as part of Baron Hausmann’s rebuilding program. Today 85% of all metal roofs in Paris utilize zinc. Umicore (VM Zinc) is the world’s leading producer of architectural zinc as a building and construction material. Helming Bros. craftsmen are trained in VM Zinc Wall Cladding and Roofing Systems as well as having completed hundreds of copper roofing fabrication and installation projects.
