LETTHE EXPERTS AT COPPERWORKS CANADA INSTALL YOUR HALF ROUND GUTTER SYSTEM
Most people don't give too much thought to their gutters. That is of course until the gutters stop functioning as they should. Choosing the right gutter for your house can make the difference between a pleasant home-owning experience and a disaster in the making. Gutter systems are an essential part of every home. They serve both practical and aesthetic functions. They are designed to channel rain water from the roof downward and away from the house. By doing this, gutters shield the foundations of the house from water damage, avoiding such problems as erosion, rotting, and mold. There are a multitude of styles and types of gutters to choose from. Among the more popular choices in Toronto and the GTA today are half round copper gutters
The Many Styles of Gutters
Gutters can come in a variety of styles (also known as profiles). Among those are the K Style, the Fascia Gutter, the Seamless Gutter, the Sectional Gutter, and the Half Round Gutter.
Despite the large number of styles, half round gutters are becoming the most popular choice for homeowners and builders alike. This is attributed to the fact that they have an appealing, classic design that complements most building types, are fairly inexpensive, and come in a variety of colours and materials.
From a cross-sectional perspective, a half round gutter, as the name already indicates, is shaped like a semicircle. The arching in a half round gutter makes it easier for it to collect precipitation and channel it towards the downspout.
Aluminum or Copper?
There is a large selection of materials that gutters can be made of, among which are vinyl, wood, and various types of metal. Two of the most common choices are aluminum and copper
. Each of these materials boasts unique qualities, but also has its shortcomings.
Aluminum is a popular choice among builders due to the fact that it is relatively inexpensive, widely available, and can come in a wide range of colours and finishes. This makes it ideal for those looking to colour coordinate their gutters with the general exterior of the building or house on which they are being installed. Aluminum gutters are also light and easy to install. The biggest downside to them is that they dent easily and are prone to damage brought on by harsh weather.
On the other hand, copper is a favourite for many home owners due to the fact that it is extremely durable. Even though it only comes in a reddish-brown colour before oxidization, it quite simply does not rust. This helps explain why it is more expensive than aluminum and why it is considered to be worth the investment. In addition, many people are attracted to the antique, rustic look that copper adds to their homes. It's bright reddish-golden colour can accent a house quite nicely and help it stand out in any neighbourhood. Once fully oxidized, copper turns to a beautiful sea green colour giving the house a unique, historic look after several years.
