Copper Gutters are Extremely Environmentally Friendly

Copper gutters in Worcester, MA

Are your gutters need to be replaced. Are they rusted or broken? Are the fasteners no longer holding them in place? Or have the gutters leaked and failed to keep water out of your house? Then, copper gutters are a perfect solution to your needs.

When talking about gutters systems, what does eco-friendly really mean? Copper gutters are often made of recycled metals. Old copper gutters can be recycled into new. It’s just one additional way we can contribute to environmental health.

Copper is an elemental metal with a high corrosion resistance. Depending on the environment that copper is in, it will either turn green slower or faster. But the changing colors of copper is part of the material’s visual brilliance. The copper starts to green when a patina develops on the copper. The patina can form from varying elements in the environment. When copper is exposed to the atmosphere, it reacts with carbon dioxide, oxygen, moisture and pollutants. Where moisture and oxygen come into contact with copper, it oxidizes the two elements. This will eventually lead to giving the copper a tarnished tan appearance. After a few years, the tarnish will darken into a beautiful brown or black.
