Frequently Asked Questions
 
Is copper guttering eco-friendly?

Yes. Copper is one of only a few materials that is fully sustainable being 100% recyclable and to date only 12% of the current known reserves have ever been mined with 90% of copper scrap being reused. No other metal, much less plastics, can come close to matching copper in this vital area. Copper is considered a green metal and not just for its colour.

How long is my copper guttering expected to last?

Once installed your copper gutter will last in excess of 100 years being extremely durable and resistant to corrosion in any atmosphere.

How do I maintain my copper gutter?

Your copper guttering will not require any painting or cleaning and virtually no maintenance. It is therefore particularly suited for areas that are difficult or dangerous to access after completion.
 

How do I install copper guttering?
 

Any tradesman or competent DIY enthusiast can install our copper rainwater systems quickly and with the minimum of effort simply using silicone sealant and pop rivets. Full fitting instructions can be downloaded from our Technical Downloads above.

Can I use copper guttering if I want to harvest my rainwater?

Yes. Copper is a wholly natural material present in and essential to all plants, animals and humans. Plants will actually grow better using rainwater, which has a balanced pH and is free of chemicals such as chlorine. Besides its high corrosion resistance and attractive appearance copper also acts as an algaecide and fungicide, keeping growths such as moss and lichens to a minimum with obvious benefits when it comes to guttering and water harvesting.
 
When should I expect my copper guttering go green?
 

It take approximately 15 - 20 years for your copper guttering to develop the green verdigris patina. If you cannot wait that long we have a solution that can be applied after installation that changes the copper green within a few hours. Click her for more info on the Verdigris Solution.

How will my copper guttering age?

Left to age naturally our copper guttering will start to mellow within weeks, changing through various shades of brown and bronze until eventually forming a protective green / blue patina, that will naturally repair itself and is unique to copper.
 
When will my copper gutter go green?
 
The time taken for the patina process to start depends on the location of your property, local weather conditions, distance from the sea and other forms of acidic pollution. Approximate aging process below.

Can I stop my copper guttering going green?
 
Eventually copper will always go green and we recommend that you do not coat the copper to try and keep it bright, as it is the continuous changing colour of the copper that protects it and stops any corrosion.
 
Can I rest a ladder against copper guttering?
 
No. Copper is a very lightweight material for ease of installation and has a very long life but could be dented by the pressure of a ladder resting against it.
 
Do I have to use copper screws to install copper guttering?

No. Stainless steel or brass screws can be used with copper. However if you are installing one of our hopper heads we recommend our copper screws as they will be seen.
