Copper gutters add beauty and value.
Copper gutters go above and beyond utility and enter the realm of architectural detail. Their beauty and longevity make them the best choice for homes utilizing premium-roofing materials, or owners who want to add a “custom touch” to their homes. Copper gutters continue to add beauty and value to a home as each passing year the copper reaches new levels of patina. Neighbors and passersby tend to “stop and take notice” when a new copper gutter job is installed in their neighborhood.
Copper Gutters are “Green.”
We all know that as copper gutters age they patina and turn a greenish blue color. But did you know that copper is a true “green” material? Copper is one of the few metals that are fully sustainable. Only 12% of the current known reserves have ever been mined and approximately 55% of copper used in Architecture comes from recycling. Copper is a wholly natural material present in and essential to plants, animals and people and unlike other metals such as lead, copper is non-toxic and does not accumulate in the body.
