Copper gutters in Worcester, MA

When you add copper gutters to your home's exterior, you definitely add a valued, functional, and beautiful design element to your home. This strong aesthetic appeal will, without doubt, increase the value of your home. Copper is extremely durable and a more solid alloy than aluminum. It does not rust.

It is worth mentioning that copper gutters offer on average 60 years lifespan. And they can last up to 100 years with proper maintenance. Much of copper's long life is due to its ability to resist corrosion, which can signal an early end to other metals.

You will find all the details on how it will increase your home value:

  1. It is durable. Once copper has been outside for a long period of time it develops a special lining that protects it from rust, and other potentially harmful elements. This lining is called a Verdigris Patina. You will know when this occurs when your gutter will appear to have turned a shade of green. You will be wondering how long this will take to form. On average it will happen between 15 to 20 years. Anyhow, you will purchase a solution that will be applied straightaway. In fact, if you decide to have this type of guttering installed on your premises, it could remain there for well over 100 years due to its remarkable durability.
  2. It is low maintenance. Once it is installed, you will barely have to touch your copper guttering. Copper keeps both algae and fungi at bay. Because these types of growth are prevented, the number of blockages in your guttering will be significantly reduced. What is more, the material is one of the easiest to perform repairs upon. Furthermore, did you know that most guttering requires expansion joints due to expansion and contraction, the material that the drainage systems are made of either increase or decrease in size due to varying temperature.. One major advantage of copper guttering is that it can be fitted without these joints. Why? It is because slight changes in its size will not affect the overall stability and effectiveness of the guttering, no cracking or buckling will occur.
  3. It looks great. The copper will fit in perfectly with any type of natural materials. This includes wood, stone, clay, and much more. As a result it will enhance the aesthetic appeal of your property. And consequently, the value of your home will greatly increase. Be aware that due to the nature of the material its color will change over time. Ranging from a golden-brown to an earthy-brown.

Copper is the future of roofing and guttering. It does not harm the environment, and has an exceptionally long lifespan. If you are looking to replace your old drainage system, copper gutters in Worcester, MA may very well be the answer for you.
