Value of Copper Gutters in Worcester and Boston

Copper gutters are great for historical restorations or for adding an architectural flare and functionality to your home. Copper gutters will both dress up and protect your home.

Few exterior design elements are also functional. Copper gutters will add flare and design value to your home. But, perhaps more importantly, copper gutters will provide years of low maintenance protection and investment value.

Just like any other gutter systems, copper gutters and downspouts collect rainwater from the roof and direct it away from your home, keeping your home safe from water infiltration. So why copper gutters if they do what all other gutters systems do?

Copper Gutter Maintenance
Copper is the perfect material for exterior use because it is a very low maintenance, natural material. In fact, few materials maintain their integrity for as long as copper. With copper gutters no painting or sealing is required and they will not rust.  A regular gutter cleaning schedule will be sufficient in keeping them working efficiently and effectively.

Copper is also a natural fungicide, so there will be no algae or mold grow to contend with either. This makes copper gutters easier to clean than traditional aluminum gutters.

Aesthetics
Copper gutters will add to the functionality and integrity of your home, but they also add aesthetic value to your home as well. Copper gutters will keep your home safe, but they add a distinct style that sets your home apart from the others. In fact, the style is immediately noticeable and distinctive.
