Home Blown-in Insulation & Gutter Solutions
There is no question that every home needs a gutter system. So paying for gutters is absolutely worth it. But what about copper gutters? They are more expensive, and they are very beautiful, but beyond that, are they actually worth the money?
Low cost gutters, even though they appear to serve the purpose in the short term, are easily damaged and have to be replaced or repaired periodically. Copper rain gutters may be the answer.
Copper has better tensile strength compared to other gutter material. The strength increases as the copper content of the gutters increases. There are plenty of copper roofs that have been intact for centuries. Copper gutters add great value to the aesthetic looks of a house as well.
Aluminum gutters are an alternative to copper. They are not as strong however, and they can be damaged during cleaning. When considering which material gutter to install, long time durability is important.
Copper gutters will oxidize and turn green, and if this is a look you don’t like, they can be treated. While aluminum can be painted to blend with the building architecture, the coating peels off easily and requires a new coat frequently.
A copper gutter is especially right for those homeowners who want to maintain the architectural beauty. Unlike the need to hide aluminum gutters, a copper gutter can actually enhance the beauty of your home. A home is valued not only in terms of its architecture and structure, but also by the accessories that it has. Copper gutters can give you better valuation in the long run in terms of utility and aesthetics.
