Copper gutters can add a touch of elegance to your home’s appearance. Copper grows more beautiful as it ages, which makes it unique among gutter materials. Copper can also withstand all weather conditions and lasts long. In today’s blog post, Custom Installations Inc, the leading roofing services provider in our local area, discusses the many great features and benefits of copper gutters.
Low Maintenance Requirements
Copper gutters don’t require a lot of maintenance. They are much more durable than a lot of gutter materials as well. However, they still require cleaning every once in a while. You need to make sure that your copper gutters aren’t clogged so that water won’t overflow and damage your home. We suggest getting your gutters professionally inspected and cleaned every few months so that you won’t have to deal with the many problems caused by clogged gutters.
Great Visual Appeal
As an experienced siding contractor, we like copper gutters because they look very stylish. They are more eye-catching than ordinary gutters and they look great on all kinds of architectural styles. Copper gutters also develop a beautiful patina on their surfaces as the years pass. Many homeowners love the look of patina, but some homeowners don’t. If you prefer not to have patina on your gutters, then you don’t need to worry. You can prevent patina growth easily.
Copper gutters are also eco-friendly because copper is one of the few metals that are fully sustainable. You can use your copper gutters without having to worry about depleting precious resources. To date, only 12% of known copper reserves have been mined and copper gutters can be repeatedly recycled. In fact, a lot of new copper gutters are made from copper that is 70% to 100% recycled.
