Have you had copper gutters installed and/or has the allure of copper ever peaked your interest? If so, chances are you’ve also thought about having guards installed, or at least understand the need for them. But, who wants to put a standard aluminum guard on a beautiful piece of copper, right?
Selecting The Best Copper Gutter Guards
There are several reasons for you to look into researching and purchasing the best copper gutter guards:
- Desire for matching materials/metals
- Need for a competent guard
- Aesthetic appeal
When it comes to copper gutters, there is the risk of dissimilar metals causing corrosion. When aluminum and copper come into direct contact, they will reject one another causing a chemical reaction leading to corrosion and disintegration. Even when the two don’t directly come into contact with each other, there is still a possibility for corrosion, which you can learn more about in our blog post called “Why Do Copper Gutters Turn Green?” Because of this, when installing standard aluminum based guards onto a copper gutter, the installation of a rubber stripping is needed between the two products. This makes installing guards on copper gutters a bit more challenging, and can create even more of an eyesore.
Do you find yourself thinking there has to be a better option? Well, we have some good news for you! There is! We now have a solution that is both effective and elegant! Our copper gutter guards are made of solid copper allowing them to be directly installed onto your copper gutter. They are also the same patent pending One Guard design as our aluminum guards, allowing for crucial effectiveness as well as the same customization feature offered by their interchangeable screens.
Previous and/or existing copper guard solutions on the market have been less than ideal:
- Designs with holes too large to trap debris
