Considering a Gutter Replacement: Consider Copper Gutters
Making improvements in and around your home is just an ongoing, continuous part of being a homeowner, and includes decisions that are small, consequential, and everything in between.
Rain gutters are important to your top-down defense against the dangers of mismanaged water.
Gutters perform the vital function of protecting your home by carrying rainwater away from your siding, foundation, basement, and more. Most homes need gutters, downspouts, and drains, depending on your roof, climate, soil, and other factors.
When adding or replacing a gutter system – you also have some choices.
When it comes to guttering, there is a large selection of styles available. Factoring in your home’s structure, design, and your own personal preferences on the appearance of your gutters, my team will ensure you get the right gutters for you and your home.
Gutters are one element of your home that blend form and function.
We design gutter systems that are just as functional as they are good-looking. When selecting gutters, the material you choose will impact not only the gutter system’s cost but also the value and character it adds to your home.
The most common gutters on the market are aluminum gutters, affordable and functional; basic white aluminum gutters are what most of us think of when we hear the word gutter. Today, my Westchester County-based Gutter Company installed aluminum gutters in every color under the sun, many selected to mimic the look of more expensive metals gutter materials like Galvanized gutters, cooper gutters and Galvalume gutters.
Why We Believe Copper Gutters are the Best Gutter Systems.
- Systems made of a strong, visually appealing natural metal such as copper is worth considering on several levels.
- Copper is very lightweight, making it easy to transport and install. It is also an excellent environmental option, as it likely includes recycled copper.
- Copper gutters can last decades longer than some metals, such as aluminum, potentially even outlasting the time you choose to live there. Add to that little to no maintenance, standing up very nicely to rust, destructive weather such as hail, and extreme temperatures.
- As for its aesthetic appeal, there is no denying that copper is a rich, striking color that will catch your neighbor’s attention and even add value to your neighborhood. Not to mention adding resale value when the time is right.
We are often asked, Do copper gutters increase home value? And the answer is a resounding Yes. Copper Gutters increase a home’s re-sale value, curb appeal, and presence.
Copper Gutters Increase Home Value and Decrease Home Maintenance
But, to retain that stunning, natural color, copper gutters will need to be protected with a sealant before they are installed.
Though the alternative also has its own appeal, which most owners opt for.
Without sealant, your copper gutters will very gradually develop a lovely patina color due to oxidation. We believe most homeowners should strongly consider letting this natural aging process happen as it adds another dimension to your copper gutters’ unique appearance.
