Copper Gutters Patina in Shawnee, KS
Rain, sunshine, and oxygen create a beautiful patina over time. This patina process is what makes copper gutters live so long (the life expectancy of copper gutters is 50-100 years (2-4x that of other guttering materials). The patina prevents copper gutters from rusting, corroding, and deteriorating. It also makes each piece of gutter completely unique. That’s what makes copper perfect for a forever home in Shawnee, KS – or anywhere else in the world really.
Of course, visibly seeing the patina process takes time, so we thought we’d keep an eye on this beautiful Shawnee home and add photos of the patina process over time.
These copper gutters have been installed for 5 months. You can tell the copper is developing a warmer golden brown tone. Eventually, copper will patina to a beautiful blue-green tone – think Statue of Liberty.

Copper is naturally produced and is one of the few metals that is fully sustainable. Only 12% of known copper reserves have been mined.
Unlike other materials that break down and weaken overtime, Copper can be repeatedly recycled. It has nearly twice the recycled value of aluminum and almost four times the recycled value of stainless steel. New copper gutters are made from copper that is 70% to 100% recycled.
New, their brilliant sheen forms a stunning crown. As copper ages, its patina communicates a sophisticated elegance.

All of this being said…if you really like the sheen of new copper gutters, but not the patina…copper gutters might not be for you.
