Make a statement and become the stand out house in your neighbourhood with copper gutters and down-spouts Copper is a natural product that will last 80-100 years as it gradually ages, adding architectural charm and great curb appeal to your home. With normal maintenance such as cleaning the gutters of debris regularly your home will turn heads. As the copper oxidises it will gradually get darker until it eventually turns a beautiful patina. Being 100% recyclable also makes copper a great green alternative that adds lasting beauty to your home. Though copper gutters and down-spouts will cost you more they are more durable than traditional gutters and down-spouts and the added beauty makes every cent spent, worth it.
