Copper Gutter and Downspout Installation in Massachusetts

GF Sprague can install copper gutters in Newton, MA

Premium product. Copper gutters can be painted or left to develop a blue-green patina. They are often installed on historic houses.

Homeowners who elect to have copper gutters and downspouts installed rarely regret this decision. Even though copper gutters and downspouts are much more expensive than seamless aluminum gutters or galvanized steel gutters, copper has some unique qualities that make it exceptional.

Much like seamless aluminum gutters, copper gutters are designed with a seamless appearance and have soldered joints to help prevent leaks.

At GF Sprague, our roofers are fully experienced in gutter replacement and seamless copper gutter installation, helping you to upgrade the exterior of your home and protect your roof against damage caused by ice damming and clogged gutters.

Before and After

    This homeowner called us to take a look at their gutters which were not draining properly and water was running right off the roof rather than through the gutters. Our inspection showed that the gutters were damaged and pitched incorrectly, so new gutters were the best option. This homeowner decided they liked the coated copper gutter option, and the new gutters came out looking great.

Benefits of copper gutters:

  • No painting, no corrosion. Copper gutters and downspouts won't ever rust or corrode. Instead, they weather naturally to a tawny brown patina.
  • Soldered joints. With other gutters, joints (at inside & outside corners) are sealed with special sealants that sometimes need to be renewed to prevent leaks. However, the joints in copper gutters are soldered together just like copper plumbing connections so you never need to worry about leaks.
  • Craftsmanship and quality. Copper gutters and downspouts definitely make a statement about craftsmanship and quality. Instead of blending into the roof structure like seamless aluminum gutters, copper gutters stand out, showing off their supports and their lovely patina.

Installing copper gutters and downspouts

1. Brackets. A technician screws gutter brackets to the fascia board, allowing for proper pitch.

2. End caps. After the gutter has been cut to length, end caps are soldered to create a watertight seal.

3. Seams. Long gutter runs are created by soldering separate sections at the seams. 

4. Holes. Workers drill a hole in the gutter at each downspout location. 

5. Downspouts. Wall brackets secure each downspout to the sidewall.
