I was considering doing cooper gutters and downspouts till I got the price.
Boy, those are pricey!!
Now I think I'll be doing alum, does anyone know if alum. gutters can be color
matched to my trim color? Wife picked a crazy color for the trim and the
selection of alum. colors so far do not work.
Does anyone know someone that sells the copper gutters at a discount? I did a
google search and there mostly retailers out of state so with freight its still
I am in Los Angeles.
Thanks for any help you guys can provide.
I've seen copper gutters installed. The guy comes with a big truck and a
bunch of specialized tools. It took several days for the job and I think
the joints were soldered together. I have no idea of the cost, but a three
or four man crew plus a truck plus the cost of materials has to be in the
many thousands of dollars range.
Sure is pretty though.
Copper gutters are pretty when shiny and new, but then they get that
patina that turns them a dull light green (see Statue of Liberty).
I painted my aluminum gutters with plain exterior latex gloss paint 10
or so years ago. I have a black fibreglass shingled roof and the white
gutters had become stained with black. There was no cleaner that would
remove the black stains without scrubbing, which also removed some of
the the thin baked-on enamel, so I just repainted them white. They are
still white since the black stains do not seem to adhere to the latex paint.
