A copper roof birdhouse is a very nice looking addition to your yard decor.
They might be a little higher priced but looks so much nicer and will last a lot longer.
Most of them are hand-painted birdhouses and even handcrafted.
One of the companies that are well known for their birdhouses with copper roofs is Good Directions.
They are the makers of the Lazy hill farm copper-roofed bird houses.
All their products are made with a weatherproof vinyl and in combination with the copper roof, this birdhouse will last for many years.
The owners of what some people call Amish birdhouses with copper roofs often tell in reviews that this is the eye-catcher in their yard and most of the time they make it the very first thing visitors see when they come to their houses.
I have read many reviews that these copper-roofed birdhouses have withstood the terrible winter of 2013 with no problem and even a foot of snow did not harm them.
The things I would look for is if the roof can be easily removed for a clean down of the inside of the birdhouse.

Basically there are two kinds of uses for a birdhouse
- As a feeder
- As a birdhouse
You can use it as a feeder or you can use it an actual birdhouse and hope the birds will build a nest in it.
Both have the same need for quality and have to be weatherproof.
in the first situation of the bird feeder, you want the seed to stay dry and clean.
In the second situation of a birdhouse for birds to nest in you want the nest to be sheltered from the elements.
The birdhouses and this certainly goes for the ones with a copper roof, are available in many shapes and sizes.
I have seen them as large as with 10 compartments.
If this is a good idea for nesting I do not know. My knowledge of birds is too limited for that.
Where to buy a copper roof birdhouse
I have found a large number of copper roof birdhouses for sale for you online.
You can find them here!
You can also try to find a local store or maybe you live in an area with Amish carpenters that can help you, but I think you will pay a lot more.
I personally like the Amish made birdhouses with a copper roof. To the best of my knowledge, they are hand made and hand-painted by Amish craftsmen.

Several times when I was driving I stopped for a minute to have a closer look at one of them. Many people who have one like to have a talk with you and tell you about the birds it attracts.
For the people who like to make their own copper-roofed birdhouse I have found a video on how to do that.
How to make a birdhouse with copper roof
There are lots of copper roof birdhouse plans to find if you decide on making one yourself.
What I have noticed is that a lot of the people who have a copper top bird houses on a pole or post are trying to attract purple martins.
A Purple martin birdhouse is very popular and many people would like to have them but got no idea where to start.
Later I will write a new post on the subject of where to find purple martin birdhouses for sale.
I think that a bird house with a metal roof will last a lot longer than any other type. with a copper roof, it will look a lot nicer in my opinion.
