Question

Small Hole in copper roof


I have a very small hole in a copper roof above a bay window.

Size approx: 1/2-3/4" long by 1/4" wide

Is this something that can be repaired via a "filler" or patch?

Thanks for your insight.
Chris

Agreed.

But, if you want all of the pans on the bay window to look equally symetrical, if the hole is centered, sort of, then do a similar patch on each of the other pans, just to make it looks like it was intended to be their in the first place.

Yep, or go over the entire panel/section so you can hide the seam at the edges.

A small hole would only need a touch of solder.
