Zappone Manufacturing LLC manufactures copper and aluminum roofing products for residential and commercial use. Zappone Manufacturing is a private company located in Spokane, WA.
J Joseph Zappone founded his company in 1969 after observing on a trip to Europe that copper performed and looked better over a long period than slate or tile on European roofs, which are designed to be permanent. His product used an interlocking system which allowed for expansion and contraction without affecting fasteners. The Zappone shingle is, according to the company, the bestselling copper shingle in the U.S., with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation using it as its copper roofing material of choice.
Zappone products include Copper shingles, which feature a 4-way interlocking system and a patina process which improves protects the metal while improving appearance with age; Copper Scallop shingle, designed for small facades, dormers, and decorative turrets; and Aluminum shingles, which are lightweight, designed to absorb the noise of rain, wind and hail, and made with UV inhibiting paints. Aluminum shingles are available in 6 colors.
