When it comes to gutter systems, cost shouldn’t be the only deciding factor. Copper might be a high-end option, but it has numerous benefits that make it a worthwhile investment.
1. Extreme Durability
Unlike aluminum or steel, copper gutters can withstand extreme climates, from frigid winters to hot summers. Even when it is exposed to these conditions, the material does not show signs of rot or rust. Expect the gutter system to remain functional for years or even decades to come.
2. Aesthetic Appeal
Apart from being durable, copper gutters also increase a home’s aesthetic appeal. Once the material has been outside for long periods of time, it develops a coat of patina that protects against rust and other elements. This shade of green provides a unique and stunning weathered appearance as well as a rustic charm that is truly beautiful.
3. Minimal Maintenance
Because of how strong they are, copper gutters rarely sag or dent, which means it will take a long time before they need to be replaced. To ensure their efficient function, these rain gutters must be professionally installed to ensure they remain securely attached to the roofline.
4. Boost in a Home’s Overall Value
Installing copper gutters is a great way to help a home stand out in the neighborhood. This exterior component imparts a stately appearance that helps increase the overall value of your property. It can also be a great selling feature if you plan to put your home on the market.
