Whether you are planning to sell your house or settling in for the long haul, your home’s curb appeal can say a lot about you. Of course there are the obvious things that catch the eye: a lush, green lawn, landscaping, a fresh coat of paint. But one key feature that is absolutely necessary in south Louisiana and can also enhance your curb appeal is your home’s guttering. Specifically copper gutters.
Benefits of Copper Gutters
Copper is a durable, strong and luxurious material. It also resists corrosion. Gutters in general are ideal, especially in our climate, for preventing structural damage. The gutters and downspouts are crucial for channeling water off of your roof and away from your home.
Styles of Copper Gutters
Copper gutters come in a variety of designs and styles. Of course the design you choose should accommodate the type of weather that your gutters will be expected to handle. For our south Lousiana weather, you’ll need a gutter shape and size that is capable of carrying water from your roof without overflowing.
Half Round Copper Gutters
These gutters are typically installed on custom homes and buildings with historical influences. This design is perfect for carrying away small and large amounts of rain.
K-Style Copper Gutters
This is the type of gutter on most homes in the United States. Installation is fast and easy as the flat vertical side of the gutter is attached directly to the fascia board of the structure.
