Copper is the future of both roofing and guttering. It doesn’t harm the environment and has a considerably longer lifespan. So replace your old gutter system with copper gutters from Alpine Roofing Construction. Here, your trusted metal roofing company explains why they are worthwhile investments.

Why Copper Gutters Are Worthwhile Investments

Durability and Good Looks

Through oxidation, copper gutters form a coat of patina over time.  This lining is what’s called a Verdigris Patina. Your guttering will appear to have turned a shade of green. This can create a unique, stunning weathered look in only a couple of years. Many homeowners enjoy the rustic charm of the patina. Copper rain gutters are very durable. They can weather extreme climates from subzero winters to blazing hot summers. Neither will they weaken with constant exposure to the elements. They do not rust or rot and will remain functional for decades to come.

Very Low Maintenance

Once it’s installed, you’ll rarely have to touch your copper guttering. It keeps both algae and fungi at bay, so blockages in your guttering are a lot reduced. What’s more, repair on the material is very easy to do as proven by Alpine Roofing Construction. A low thermal coefficient of expansion doesn’t make expansion and contraction joints necessary. Slight changes in its size won’t affect its general stability and effectiveness. No cracking or buckling will occur. Metal roofing installers will attest to this.

Aesthetic Appeal

Copper will complement any type of natural materials, like wood, stone, clay, and much more. As a result, it will enhance the aesthetic appeal of your property and increase its value. Due to the nature of copper, its color will change ranging from a golden-brown to an earthy-brown. In the end, it will change to a permanent green hue due to the effect of Verdigris Patina.
