    Need to light a copper "colored" metal roof. This roof will maintain the "new penny" color for years. Has anyone ever worked with something of this nature? What fixture, lamp, lens did you find that worked well?

    All the ones I have seen patina very quickly. Is there some sort of coating on this one ?

    Yes from what I understand. It is the same metal roofing you see on homes now that come in different colors. This one just happens to be copper colored, and has a 30 year color guarantee.
