Copper guttering has long been considered the ultimate in guttering and for good reason.  There are several reasons to use copper gutters on a home, beyond the aesthetic and elegant look it adds. Copper is very corrosion-resistant, so it will endure even in salty conditions and areas with a great deal of acid rain. It is not uncommon for copper gutters to have a lifespan of 60 to 90 years or triple that of aluminum. Copper guttering are mostly utilized in their natural, unfinished state allowing the copper to develop it's own distinctive, protective patina throughout many years. Copper performs great in inner cities, coastal and marine environments. Copper's protective patina gives it the ability to ward off corrosion, durability and very long life.
