Copper Gutters Are Green Home Improvements – Worcester, Boston

Joseph Coupal - Monday, March 24, 2014

It may not feel like it quite yet, but spring is here. This is the time to start planning those outdoor home improvement projects. ‘Green’ are more attractive to homeowners and home buyers. You need a new gutter system, but how can you make a ‘green’ choice? Home owners with the environment in mind are turning to copper gutters.

But, not only is copper the green choice, it is also the best choice for gutters. Actually, copper is one of only a few materials that is considered to be fully sustainable. Barely any of the copper reserves worldwide have been mined, and that copper that has been mined is still in use today! In fact, more than half of all the copper used for architectural purposes is recycled.

One of the biggest advantages of copper gutters is their lifespan, they can last for more than 100 years. Obviously, this means that for the life of your home you won’t ever have to replace your gutters. A peripheral benefit of this is a decrease in energy and fuel use in producing PVC and aluminum gutters are more homeowners choose copper.

Even better, copper gutters are essentially maintenance free as well. So, for the next hundred years, you don’t have to worry about your home gutter system. Copper is a natural algaecide and fungicide. Moss is one of the biggest causes of clogged gutters and copper automatically inhibits its growth.

Needless to say, copper gutters are far more attractive than any other gutter material. So from an aesthetics perspective, as well as an environmental one, copper gutters are the perfect choice for your home.
