4 Benefits of Copper GuttersProtecting your home from water damage is an idea you are likely invested in. With the help of quality rain gutters, you can prevent flooding alongside your home, foundation sinking, wall stains, rotting and the growth of mold and mildew. Since there are several options in rain gutters that can meet your expectations, it can be hard to choose. Copper gutters are one of the most advantageous options.

  1. Durability – Copper gutters are a highly durable option. While some gutters, such as aluminum, are expected to last around twenty years, copper gutters can last well over fifty years or more. Because of the chemicals in copper, these gutters will not rust or corrode, but instead build a patina that prevents deterioration.
  2. Maintenance – Copper gutters require very little maintenance when installed correctly. This is especially true when the gutters are seamless, as they do not need to be caulked, but are soldered together instead.
  3. Environmental benefits – Not only will your copper gutters last much longer than other gutters, but copper is also a completely recyclable material, so if they are ever replaced, they won’t end up in a landfill.
  4. Appearance – Over the years, your copper gutters will change in color. This is a natural process, and the aged look is highly sought-after by many.
