Copper Gutter and Downspout Considerations

Copper Gutter and Downspout Considerations

Gutter Considerations:

When your gutters aren’t working properly it is obvious, but, knowing the important aspects to their repair can be confusing.

  • Gutters are often designed for that particular building
  • Gutters can be built into the overhang, some fit into decorative rafter tails, others hang on the outside of the fascia
  • Gutters are fabricated from either copper or tin
  • Harsh weather conditions causes many older buildings to need replacements
  • New Gutters must fit the original design of the eave without any alterations to the structure

Downspout Considerations:

  • Just a few downspout profiles used on older buildings are still widely used today
  • Soldered joint tin or copper was the standard of the day then but now we use copper
  • The back manufactured seam is where most old downspouts fail
  • Existing decorative leader head boxes and straps are either saved or replaced
