Copper Gutters are the Clear "Green" Choice for New Homes and Remodels

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, April 10, 2012

If you are thinking of building a new home or renovating the home you have, you know that green building materials are all the rage. But this is a trend that does not seem to be going away. Architects, builders and homeowners are trying to reduce their carbon footprint, which shows in the increasing use of environmentally friendly materials. This means that more and  more homeowners are turning to copper gutters as green materials and for aesthetics.

Copper is a perfect choice for gutters. Copper is one of a handful of materials that are considered to be fully sustainable. It is estimated that 55% of all the architectural copper in use is recycled.

Copper gutters have a lifespan of at least 100 years. So copper gutters last as long as your home and look beautiful for all those years too. You won’t need to replace copper gutters. Copper is also a fungicide which makes it maintenance free. So while moss is the main problem with traditional cutters, copper gutters fight moss all on their own.

Are you thinking about price? When comparing price and durability, cast iron, aluminum and PVC gutters can’t beat copper. Based on price, durability, appearance or environmental factors, copper gutters are the clear choice for your new home or your newly remodeled home.
