The Benefits of Copper Rainwater Systems
24 July 2020
Copper is a unique material with a stunning look suited to both heritage and contemporary properties. Starting off in a stunning rich shade which compliments wooden builds, red bricks and traditional stonework, the material slowly oxidises over time into a striking sea-green patina evoking the elegance and refinement of European cathedrals.
Stunning, timeless look
Copper is a unique material with a stunning look suited to both heritage and contemporary properties. Starting off in a stunning rich shade which compliments wooden builds, red bricks and traditional stonework, the material slowly oxidises over time into a striking sea-green patina evoking the elegance and refinement of European cathedrals. This is truly a timelessly beautiful material, its prestige dating back to ancient Egyptian temples and Roman monuments; our copper rainwater systems are the ideal way to add this material’s sense of style and heritage to your home’s exterior.
Not only do our copper rainwater systems look the part, but they’re also environmentally friendly. All our copper gutters, downpipes and hoppers are sustainable and 100% recyclable without affecting material integrity, meaning they can be recycled indefinitely. If you’re looking for an eco-friendly option for your rainwater system to minimise your long-term impact upon the environment, copper should be your material of choice.
Durable and long-lasting
Copper is also one of the longest-lasting materials available for rainwater systems, with our copper products having an average expected lifespan of over 100 years. This material is highly durable and corrosion-resistant, increasing your rainwater system’s lifecycle as well as providing the environmental benefits coming with a drastically reduced need for future rainwater system replacement.
Our copper rainwater systems require little to no maintenance over their lifespan besides clearing out any debris, such as fallen leaves, from the guttering. As copper acts as an algaecide and fungicide, the material naturally prevents the growth of moss and lichen from damp, helping to maintain your rainwater system’s smart looks over long periods of time. It is also the perfect system when considering rainwater harvesting.
