That is sure Joe, it is the most preferred by metal workers, easier to cut and i think that is why they are selling it the way they want.

Copper is easier to work with. It´s softer, cuts easier, doesn´t wear out your cutting tools like stainless does, and it solders more easily. It used to be much more reasonably priced and has been popular for generations.

Is there an advantage to using the copper, beyond it just being more traditional?

Yes, TCS is cheaper, although it is rising in price also.

Joe, Given the great rise in the cost of Copper, is it now cheaper to use TCS or Stainless Steel for flashings, valleys, et al on Slate Roofs?
