Value of Copper Gutters in Worcester and Boston

Joseph Coupal - Monday, May 20, 2013

Copper gutters are great for historical restorations or for adding an architectural flare and functionality to your home. Copper gutters will both dress up and protect your home.

Few exterior design elements are also functional. Copper gutters will add flare and design value to your home. But, perhaps more importantly, copper gutters will provide years of low maintenance protection and investment value.

Just like any other gutter systems, copper gutters and downspouts collect rainwater from the roof and direct it away from your home, keeping your home safe from water infiltration. So why copper gutters if they do what all other gutters systems do?

Copper Gutter Maintenance
Copper is the perfect material for exterior use because it is a very low maintenance, natural material. In fact, few materials maintain their integrity for as long as copper. With copper gutters no painting or sealing is required and they will not rust.  A regular gutter cleaning schedule will be sufficient in keeping them working efficiently and effectively.

Copper is also a natural fungicide, so there will be no algae or mold grow to contend with either. This makes copper gutters easier to clean than traditional aluminum gutters.

Aesthetics
Copper gutters will add to the functionality and integrity of your home, but they also add aesthetic value to your home as well. Copper gutters will keep your home safe, but they add a distinct style that sets your home apart from the others. In fact, the style is immediately noticeable and distinctive.

Copper Gutters for Green Building in Boston and Worcester

Joseph Coupal - Monday, April 29, 2013

If you are building a home or remodeling your existing home and are trying to make green construction choices, consider that the greenest choice for a gutter system is copper gutters. Why? Because copper is one of only a few materials that is fully sustainable.  Only 12% of the copper reserves have been mined and most of what has been mined is still in use. It is also estimated that 55% of all the copper used for architectural purposes today is recycled.

Copper is an incredibly durable building material, which makes it an excellent choice for parts of home construction that will be subject to excessive wear and tear. Your copper gutters will last at least 100 years. Once you install them on your home, you will never replace them. There is no other gutter system or gutter material that you can say this about. Although the price of copper gutters is more than aluminum, your aluminum gutters will not last nearly as long, and will incur far more maintenance and repair costs.

Copper gutters are virtually maintenance free. Although a copper gutter system will require the regular debris removal that all gutter systems occasionally need, copper gutters will not need to be repainted or replaced over their lifespan. With the natural properties of copper gutters that work as a fungicide and algaecide, they also naturally eliminate one of the biggest causes of clogged gutters: moss.
