Sustainable House benefits from Copper Rainwater System
If you are wanting a natural looking and eco-friendly rainwater system then Copper gutters and down pipes from the Yeoman Rainguard range, as chosen by the owners of a charming detached residence in North Yorkshire, are the solution.
With solar panels already in place the proprietors were keen to extend their sustainable ideas to a new rainwater system choosing a copper product for its natural attributes.
Yeoman Rainguard 125 x 70mm copper half round gutters along with 80mm dia. downpipes were expertly fitted to the property by local contractor Robertson Building & Roofing Ltd of York.
Over time the bright finish will darken through natural oxidisation to, eventually, a beautiful green patina. This attractive finish looks perfect against natural stone, timber and red brick facades.
The finish is not only pleasing to the eye but gives copper gutters and downpipes their own self-manufactured defence to corrosion, meaning a low maintenance lifecycle of over 50 years.
A copper rainwater system is also a perfect choice for those, as in this case, wanting to harvest rainwater because it is a natural biocide which prevents the build-up of algae.
“We are very happy with what Yeoman Rainguard have supplied us and look forward to the system giving us many years of maintenance free service.” commented the house owner.
