Copper gutters offer a unique blend of style and durability that sets them apart from other gutter materials. Their beautiful patina develops over time, adding a touch of classic elegance to any home. Moreover, copper gutters are known for their longevity, often lasting up to 50 years with proper maintenance.
Advantages Of Copper Seamless Gutters
- Think “green”: New copper gutters are made from copper that is 70% to 100% recycled. Old ones are 100% recyclable!
- Longevity: Copper does not corrode easily. They typically last 100 years, or more, which means less garbage filling our landfills. Galvanized gutters last approximately 15 to 25 years – even less, near the ocean.
- Low Maintenance: They do not need to be painted.
- No Replacement Costs: Vinyl gutters break easily in no time, even aluminum gutters will need regular repair maintenance.
Comparing Copper Gutters & Other Metal Gutters
Copper gutters are naturally stunning and look great as they age. Depending on the environment, copper will patina naturally and is quite beautiful. Other gutters need to be continually repainted to maintain their life expectancy. For those who desire the look of very aged copper, it can be “aged”, quite quickly, with a chemical process that looks awesome.
When water sits in a copper gutter, it does just that: sit. It doesn't cause any damage unlike other metal gutters that will gradually be corroded and require repairs.
What Do Copper Gutters Cost?
The installation cost for copper gutters is a consideration however it's also important to consider what copper gutters cost over time rather than the upfront initial investment. While copper gutters are more expensive than other rain gutters it is sensible to look at other factors, that when considered, actually make copper the more viable option, over the medium-to-long term.
Choosing Aluminum Or Other Metal Gutters means:
Roofing - if you have to replace your guttering before the roof is replaced, the first two rows of the roofing material will have to be removed and replaced
Debris - Unless you have your gutters cleaned regularly, debris building up can damage your pipework. Anything that has any sort of acid in it (leaves, pine needles, bird droppings) will accelerate the process of rusting, as will salt.
Ancillary Costs - Installing other metal gutters means additional costs over time (when the gutters need to be replaced):
- Landscaping – All landscaping near the house will have to be protected or replaced.
- Scaffolding – if you have a multi-story home, scaffolding may need to be erected.
- Labor – You will pay for gutter installation all over again.
- New Gutters – You also have to pay for the new gutter.
- Painting -Now, they need to be painted.
