Over the centuries, copper has proven to be a formidable building material in the fields of architecture, building construction and even as a design element and functional choice in interior design. Some of the reasons why copper gutters, downspouts and ornamental copper have been around so long is due to the element’s natural resistance to corrosion and durability, all the while emanating a prestigious aura reminiscent of earlier civilization. You can expect that the copper gutters AmeriGutter installs for you to last in the range of 60 to 100 years. Compare this to traditional aluminum gutters that typically last up to 20 years and factor in both the aesthetic and monetary value added to your home. For historical homes, such an investment is surely worth it. This restorative enhancement will not only have neighbors gawking but will also gift your neighborhood with another touch of that all-time classic look.
There are few things that bring more beauty and character to a house than copper gutters. Aging naturally with your home, these gutters undergo a transformation much like that of a newly minted penny. And yet like a penny, copper gutters retain their fine details even as time progresses when the buildup of oxide film yields what’s known as a patina. The patina evolves from brown to dark brown and eventually green. It is that cherished weathered look which creates a rustic yet elegant feel. Our company installs a variety of styles and do our best to cater to the design idea of the homeowner.
Half round are easily the most popular type of copper gutters that we install here at AmeriGutter although we certainly offer the common, lighter, alternative K style. The former style are usually placed in fascia mount brackets that fit around the gutter versus k style which often has internal hangers. Half round types paired with round copper downspouts convey a striking sense of historicity.
All in all, these gutter systems require very little maintenance although initial hanging requires quite a bit of soldering. While they still need to be regularly cleaned of leaves and debris(see our gutter guard recommendations), they rarely sag or need replacement. Due to the nature of the material, it is important to hire a professional contractor like AmeriGutter Seamless Gutters to properly install any type of copper gutter system.
