Our team at Batson’s Gutter Systems wants to help you take the best possible care of your home, and to do that, we offer a wide range of high-quality gutters and gutter services. If you are in the market for new gutters, you may want to consider installing copper rather than aluminum gutters. In this article, our team will go over a few advantages that copper gutters have to offer to help you decide if they are right for you.
- Rust Resistance. One advantage of copper gutters over aluminum is that copper gutters are less likely to rust, which means they are also less likely to develop leaks over time. This in turn will ensure that your gutters can continue to do their job of protecting your home from water damage as effectively as possible.
- Durability. Another advantage of copper gutters is that copper will not crack or wear out as quickly as aluminum does, which means that they will last longer. If you are looking for a gutter option that is built to last and won’t need to be replaced for a good long while, copper gutters may be the right choice for you.
- Appearance. A third advantage of copper gutters over aluminum ones is that copper is generally considered to be more attractive than aluminum, offering a characteristic rosy shine. In addition, the oxidization process of copper turns it an attractive green color—the same color as the Statue of Liberty—rather than creating unsightly brown spots, which means that copper gutters will only look better with age.
