Information about copper gutters
Any homeowner needs gutters and downspouts for his house to avoid getting water in their heads, a flooded basement or a destroyed foundation. From the different types of gutters, here is some information about copper gutters.
The first thing about copper is that it doesn’t rust or rot away, so they are considered to handle any weather whatsoever.
The one problem copper has, is that it oxidizes, unless you treat it right. This is easily fixed with the proper sealants making it shiny and gold looking. Or, as some people prefer, you can skip treating it and let it oxides and turn green. Some people like this look added to their houses.
The reason copper is so good is that it is also expensive, but if you think at the money you save with maintenance you will recover your money eventually. You will need to hire a specialist to install the gutters too.
