Portland, OR (PRWEB) June 13, 2012
Gutters aren’t usually considered glamorous. However, in the right hands custom copper gutters can transform essential but boring rain gutters into a piece of art.
Elegant copper gutters enhance both traditional and contemporary architecture and can add curb appeal and value to any home. As copper ages, it develops its own distinctive and beautiful patina. The rich changing earth tone color palette is one of the most prized features of copper.
“Homeowners are discovering all the reasons copper guttering has long been considered the ultimate in gutter systems,” explains Wade Miller, owner of Gutter Hero who specializes in creating and designing custom gutters. “Not only do these gutters take the timeless, elegant beauty of copper and turn functional gutters into decorative elements, but copper is also the most durable and long-lasting of all gutter material types.”
In fact, copper gutters have been known to have a lifespan up to 60 to 90 years – triple that of aluminum. Although a copper gutter system requires the same regular debris removal as all other gutter systems, they are very low maintenance. Copper gutters do not rust or need to be repainted or re-sealed during their long lifespan. In addition, these gutters are considered to be one of the most eco-friendly materials available.
Typically copper gutters come in the two basic styles: K-style gutters and Half Round gutters. Both types of gutter systems are effective and easy to maintain. K-Style gutters, flat on one side, are the most commonly used and can be nailed or screwed directly into the fascia board. Half Round gutters create a more traditional, classic design and add an upscale look. Each part of the Half Round gutter system, including the hangers, brackets, outlets, and caps are decorative.
