A good way to increase your home’s curb appeal and complement its architectural beauty is to install copper rain gutters. Although copper is much more expensive than other materials, such as aluminum, there are many excellent benefits of using this material.
Copper gutters are durable and won’t rust. On top of this, much less maintenance is needed for copper compared to steel or aluminum. They can be expected to last up to eighty years or more! The seams are soldered instead of sealed and copper also has no problem handling extreme hot or cold temperatures.
The aesthetics that copper gutters offer are hard to beat. They will give your home a vintage look that is very attractive to the eye. Newly installed copper gutters are bright and shiny; however, over time they will oxidize and form a greenish patina coating. This patina finish is preferred by many people, and will add a very unique look to your home. If you prefer the shiny look of copper, it is possible to stop the oxidation process by applying special sealants. Either way, your house will really stand out.
Aluminum or steel gutters are very efficient for many homeowners, however, if you are looking to add that extra beauty to your home with great durability and longevity; copper gutters are an excellent choice. The installation of these gutters takes special care and handling considering the finish of the material.
