Benefits of copper gutters:
- Extreme Durability: Copper gutters are able to withstand the elements, whether its blistering heat, or sub-zero winters. They won’t rot or rust, and extended exposure to the elements will simply result in a natural green-tint called patina, which many homeowners enjoy!
- Long Lasting: While some gutter systems, like vinyl or aluminum, have an expected lifespan of roughly twenty years, expect your copper gutters to last for close to a half-century, if not longer. Copper gutters resistance to corrision means that in the right conditions, your system could last nearly 100 years!
- Low Maintenance: Just like any other gutter system, copper gutters will need to be routinely cleaned of debris to keep working properly. However, because they are far more durable than other gutter materials, you shouldn’t need to make a lot of repairs, as your gutters are very unlikely to bend or break due to excessive debris build-up.
- Aesthetic Benefits: Copper gutters look fantastic on any home! They are a great way to make your home stand-out in the neighborhood, and even if they begin to patina, your house will have a beautiful green and brown tint that will provide your home with a rustic look.
