If copper is allowed to oxidize, it will gradually form a coating, turning dark gray and—eventually—a lovely green color (patina). This can give the home a stately appeal and is the preferred choice among homeowners. The process takes a while—up to six years—to complete. If you desire the natural look of copper, you need to protect it with a sealant to prevent oxidation.
