But the very best part is the vinyl/PVC construction which makes for superb quality that lasts a lifetime! You’ll find a copper roof birdhouse in square, hexagon, or octagon shapes, ranging in size from small, medium and large, to the jumbo estate size. The number of entrances depends on which birds you’d like to attract, using a single entrance for bluebirds, with eight-or 12-entrance model for martins. Of course house placement and habitat will also determine who may take up residence.
Some folks want them for the aesthetic alone, and on occasion they want to know how to keep the birds out? 🙁
The roof is available in a patina finish (shown above) or bright copper. The latter will actually stay “bright & shiny” for about fours years, at which time a coat of polish may be applied should that brand new look be desired. The copper is treated with a lacquer to keep it from weathering. Also available with no lacquer, it will turn quicker. This is appealing to some who may have an older or restored home with copper accents. If the roof is left to weather naturally, it’s more likely to match the residences’ copper accents for a more cohesive setting.
Even the finials will not rot, they’re a composite resin and promise to remain just as new as day one. Complete with the decorative brackets (also in vinyl), the birdhouses fit right on a 4×4 post. The base includes a collar, or recessed sleeve (where the brackets are attached) that allows for easy installation. All roofs lift off (no screws) for simple nest removal. A copper roof birdhouse like this will grace any landscape with a simple elegance for many years to come!
