If you’ve ever had to deal with gutter installation, it’s likely that you’ve discussed copper gutters with your contractor. Copper is one of a number of options for making gutters and it does present some advantages over the others.
The cost of copper gutters is higher, perhaps double that of almost any other material available today. But to understand why, you have to recognize their key benefits.
Copper gutters are known for their durability. It’s a great option for people living in extreme conditions. Rain, snow and intense heat do not affect the durability of copper much. As copper doesn’t rust or rot, you can expect to enjoy your gutters for a very long time.
Cleaning your gutters is not the most exciting thing. With copper, you can install and mostly forget about your gutters. You still have to do some basic maintenance just to ensure they’re not clogged and to prolong their life span even more, but they’re as low-maintenance as they come.
Gutters are mostly utilitarian in nature. They do their job and are not exactly meant to look great while doing it. Copper gutters, however, add some classic beauty to the home. Oxidation gives copper an interesting patina over time, and it’s a perfect look if you love rustic charm. Copper gutters are also the perfect complement to copper roofs. Think about installing copper gutters if you’re planning a copper roof replacement.
Copper gutters may cost more to install, but these benefits, and the fact that you never have to replace them again (they can last up to 100%20 years) make them worth the investment.
