Adding copper rain gutters to your home can create beautiful curb appeal! These classic gutters have a metalic shine but will eventually form a patina of dark brown/turquoise color.
The patina creates an antique or vintage appearance. It is a great way to accent or compliment your home and adds resale value.
How much are copper gutters?
The cost for installing copper gutters on a house is not cheap and is seen as a luxury. Copper gutters can cost between $15 and $25 per linear foot in Boise Meridian area.
In comparison, most houses are outfitted with aluminum gutters, which only cost between $4 and $8 per linear foot. One factor that affects the cost of the copper gutters is the thickness of the metal being used.
Is There Low Cost Copper Gutters?
Yes, there is a more affordable look of copper, but the cost is the same as aluminum. We can install a Copper Penny Aluminum style which has ALL THE BENEFITS of a seamless gutter, but so much cheaper. And it can be K style radius gutter.
Copper penny gutters are a painted aluminum product that has the appearance of new copper and is then finished with a high-gloss coat so it stays shiney all the time. It will never patina or tarnish.
How long do copper gutters last?
Copper gutters not only look nice, but are also extremely durable, making them more resilient in all weather. Because of this, they are less likely to weaken. Properly maintained copper gutters can last for around 50-150 years, which is longer than any other gutter material on the market.
Traditionally you can choose a classic half-round style, but crown molding or ‘k-style’ is available. Deciding between half-round gutters and k-style gutters depends on a variety of circumstances and your preferences. Copper is also available in standard 5 inch or oversized 6 inch sizes.
We also offer gutters on a radius fascia or rounded turrets of Victorian houses. Radius gutter installation is the most difficult type of gutter install and is not offered by most gutter companies. Curved gutters are shaped around the curvatures of a roof like the inset image. Call us for a quote.
