Welcome to Gutter Pro Enterprises, your go-to experts in gutter installation and maintenance! We recently had the pleasure of completing a project in the town of Falmouth where we installed new half-round copper gutters for a residential property. In this blog post, we’ll walk you through the details of this project and the benefits of choosing copper gutters for your home.
Our team at Gutter Pro Enterprises was contacted by a homeowner in Falmouth who wanted to upgrade their old gutters to improve the functionality and appearance of their home. After conducting an inspection of the property, we recommended the installation of new half-round copper gutters. However, the property didn’t have any existing gutters to remove, and the fascia boards were all in good condition.
Instead, we encountered angled fascias that required the fabrication of a Versatex wedge to properly support the gutter below the drip edge. This was important to ensure that the gutters could handle the weight of rainwater without sagging and to prevent any potential damage to the exterior of the home.
We began the installation process by carefully measuring the perimeter of the home to determine the length of gutter needed for each section. Half-round copper gutters come in various sizes, so it was important to choose the right size to accommodate the amount of rainfall in the Falmouth area.
Once we had the necessary measurements, we cut the copper gutters to size and fabricated the Versatex wedge to support the gutters on the angled fascias. We installed the gutters using copper hangers spaced approximately every two feet to provide ample support. Finally, we sealed all the joints with solder to prevent leaks and ensure optimal performance.
Benefits of Copper Gutters
Copper gutters are a popular choice for homeowners due to their durability, aesthetic appeal, and functionality. Unlike other materials, copper is resistant to corrosion and can last for decades without rusting or deteriorating. Copper gutters also have a unique, elegant appearance that can add value to any home.
In addition to their durability and appearance, copper gutters are also highly functional. The half-round shape of the gutters allows for better water flow, reducing the risk of overflow and water damage to your home. Copper gutters are also low-maintenance and require minimal cleaning, making them a convenient choice for homeowners.
At Gutter Pro Enterprises, we take pride in providing high-quality gutter installation services to homeowners throughout the Falmouth area. This project was a great example of our commitment to excellence and attention to detail. By installing new half-round copper gutters, we were able to enhance the functionality and appearance of the homeowner’s property.
