Copper gutters have an exclusive look that will set your home apart from the other homes in Western Massachusetts, but you will be getting a product that lasts longer and is easier to maintain. Add a distinctive style and flare to your house which is different than your standard gutters with copper. This style of visual appeal can only be accomplished with copper gutters.

Gutter Cleaning Can Help You Avoid Expensive Home Repairs

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, May 03, 2011

If you think a few leaves and twigs in your gutters are harmless, think again. Regular gutter cleaning is the single most important key to avoiding major and expensive home repairs.

Gutters perform one duty: controlling the water around your home. If debris keeps gutters from doing their job, you can wind up with some serious problems. Here are just a few:

Clogged gutters are the number one cause of basement water problems. When gutters are clogged, roof water overflows and accumulates around the foundation. If this happens, basement leaks can be right around the corner.

Water backing up from clogged gutters will cause moisture damage to the wood fascia around the house. The rotted area will quickly get worse if the leak is not eliminated by cleaning the gutters.

Misdirected and clogged gutter spouts often cause driveways and walks to sag and crack.

Any newly planted flowers, plants, grass or trees can be killed by excess water from clogged gutters. Overflowing gutters can also cause erosion and put an early end to young plantings.

Bugs love moisture. Keeping gutters free of clogs and keeping the soil dry around the foundation perimeter can force bugs to go elsewhere rather than snack on your dampened two-by-four.

Everything about Copper Gutters

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, April 19, 2011

Every homeowner needs gutters and downspouts on their home. One style of gutters that are gaining in popularity is copper gutters. Here's a look at everything about this type of rain gutter.

Copper Gutters will never rust or rot. Better than any other type of gutter systems, they can stand up to most weather conditions.

Copper gutters add style and flare to your home which is different from standard gutters. Their style is immediately noticeable and recognizable. They add visual appeal that can only be found with copper. But, they also add value to your home and require less maintenance than aluminum gutters or gutters of other materials.

Unless you treat them, copper gutters will oxidize and turn green over time. There are several sealants available that can be applied to keep your copper gutters looking golden and shiny. However, most people prefer the greenish look, of oxidized gutters, especially in older homes.

Copper gutters are generally more expensive than standard aluminum gutters. However, due to their longevity you will make the money back over time because there is no maintenance with copper.
 
If you are looking for a beautiful gutter system that will stand up to the elements and last a lifetime, copper gutters may be your best solution. Give Custom Insulation a call.
