We’ve already discussed the importance of gutters and the value and protection they add to your home. The next decision is to look at the different materials and styles available for rain gutter systems and decide which one is right for you and your home. Copper gutters are gaining in popularity so let’s take a look at why and if copper gutters are the right choice for you!
First, copper rain gutters are extremely durable. They can weather extreme climate changes and seasons from subzero winters to sweltering hot summers. They also will endure constant exposure to the elements without weakening, rusting or rotting.
Copper rain gutter systems are long-lasting, often spanning 60-100 years without need of significant maintenance. This tremendous benefit offers the ability for homeowners to recoup the higher initial installation cost of copper with fewer replacements needed over time.
The visual appeal of copper rain gutters also offers instant interest and appeal. Initially, the vibrant color and glimmer of the golden hue is a unique eye catcher. Then over time, through oxidation, copper gutters form a coat of patina. This can create a unique, stunning weathered look in just a couple of years. Homeowners enjoy the rustic look of this patina effect.
Next, copper gutters require minimal maintenance. While they still need to be cleared of leaves and debris, they rarely sag or need replacement. However, it is vitally important that copper rain gutters are professionally installed to ensure they remain securely and properly attached to the structure.
Finally, copper rain gutters can be a great way to help a home stand out in the neighborhood. Adding a stately appeal, this material choice not only increases the value of the home but can also be a great selling feature when it comes time to put the property on the market.
