All Gutter Systems is Michigan's leading installer of copper gutters in both K-Style and Half Round.
All Gutter Systems has done a tremendous amount of custom copper installation throughout West Michigan. Copper gutters are rain gutters which have been constructed from copper, a metal which has a very distinctive appearance when it is new. Over time, untreated copper gutters will acquire a patina, slowly turning gray to greenish.
The use of copper gutters is ancient, with evidence of copper roofing and gutters dating back thousands of years, and copper continues to be a very popular material for gutters. The main disadvantage of copper is that it tends to be higher in price than other gutter materials, but it also increases the value of a structure.
There are several reasons to use copper gutters on a home, beyond the aesthetic 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 also sturdy, and it meshes well with a wide variety of roofing materials, including slate, cedar shakes, and composite roofing. Copper gutters also do not need to be painted, although people who want to reduce the development of a patina may need to periodically strip and re-seal their copper with products designed for this purpose.REQUEST A FREE ESTIMATE
