It is not officially spring but it sure feels like it and spring is when home sales really pick up. If you are in the process of putting your home on the market, investing in home improvement projects to give you the upper hand in this volatile housing market where competition is intense.
 
If you are putting your home into the real estate market, you know there is plenty of competition and the prices are very low. With so many choices for potential home buyers, it is important to set your home apart.  What can you do while being confident you will get back your investment in the sale of the home? Copper Gutters.

Every home needs curb appeal. As prospective buyers arrive, the front of your home will make a first impression. It is important to make an effort in your homes outside appearance. Copper gutters are sure to set your home apart.  Copper gutters are a popular choice. More people are choosing copper gutters because they are durable, unique and look beautiful. More importantly, they are very low maintenance.

Copper Gutters Have an Exclusive Look

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, March 29, 2011

If it rains at your house, you need a gutter system. Gutters prevent water damage from the roof to the basement. One type of gutter that is gaining in popularity is copper gutters. At Custom Insulation we believe copper trumps the rest.

Copper gutters will never rust or rot away; whatever the weather this gutter will withstand it. Copper gutters add a distinctive style and flare to your house which is different than your standard gutters. Their style is noticeable and recognizable and they add a visual appeal that can only be accomplished with copper.

Because it is more valuable, copper adds a higher value to your home. Also, they are more easily maintained than aluminum or vinyl. Copper gutters will oxidize and turn green over time unless you treat them. There are ways to preserve the shine with sealants, but it is not necessary. And, on the other hand, many people like and prefer the greenish look, particularly in older homes found in Worcester and in other parts of Massachusetts. Copper has an exclusive look.

Copper gutters are an excellent addition and investment for the exterior of any home. The many benefits: sustainable building material, cosmetic enhancement and increased home value, and low maintenance; mean that you're going to pay a bit more for copper gutters. The positive side is that you will be getting a product that lasts longer and is easier to maintain. Call Custom Insulation for more information.

Our Aluminum and Copper Gutters Add Value to Any Home

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, March 02, 2011
Besides the convenience of not being dripped on, gutters provide a useful and important function for the maintenance of your home. By channeling rain water to a central downspout and thereby away from your foundation, gutters help to prevent a slow but steady accumulation of moisture around the perimeter of your house. Over time, this can lead to foundation problems, leaks, or wood rot. If you were on the fence about installing gutters, remember that they can also provide added value to your home in more ways that one.

If you are installing gutters for the first time or performing gutter repairs, there are a few things to be aware of before you begin shopping. Gutters come in several varieties and materials. Each has its advantages and disadvantages. Maintaining gutters is one issue, then there are cost and aesthetic appeal to consider. We provide only the best type of gutters for homes, which we will go over in small detail below.

Copper gutters are very strong and keep protecting your home for years. Many people choose copper for its visual appeal, as it can add a nice gold or patina piping to your home design. Copper gutters still protect homes from water damage, but look great doing it. There are many sizes available, from a standard 5 inch to much larger commercial grade 8 inch. All copper gutters consist of 16oz. per foot and are made from the highest quality copper available.

Aluminum
is a cheap install option and will work perfectly fine for several years. We offer seamless gutters in 5 inch and 6 inch sizes. All seamless gutters are made with .032 inch thick aluminum. They are available in a variety of colors with baked on enamel to ensure beauty for years to come.

If your house has no gutters or if the existing ones are showing signs of leakage or are pulling away from the house in places, do not let the problem get worse. Whichever gutter you choose to install will add value to your home and prevent future maintenance issues. Contact us today to learn more about our gutters and be sure to check out our insulation methods and other services we offer.
