  • Copper Gutter Installation on Tenino Stable

    Copper gutter installation in Tenino.

    We honestly don't have a huge call for copper gutter installation because it is pricier than aluminum gutters, but once in a while we have a customer that is after a specific look and is willing to spend the money for the aesthetics.

    This Tenino customer has a beautiful stable and wanted to accent it with copper gutters. You can see some of the installation pictures in the gallery below.

    Copper gutters are more expensive for a number of reasons. Aside from the material being costlier, copper gutters are not seamless and require soldering to assemble. This means they are more labor intensive to install.

    Aside from their unique appearance, copper gutters are more durable than aluminum. They also assume a natural patina finish over time as they are exposed to the weather, giving them a one-of-a-kind look -- no two sets of copper gutters are alike.

    Take a look at the photos below and let us know what you think. If you're after a unique look for your home, this just might be the ticket. We're happy to give you a free estimate and compare the cost of copper gutters to aluminum for your gutter installation project.

  • Gutters Aren't Just for Houses

    Gutters are just as important for your out building, garage or shed.When most people think about gutters, they think about installing them on their home.  After all, keeping roof drainage away from the foundation of your house is what gutters are for, right?

    However, in a rainy, Northwest climate like the Olympia area and South Puget Sound, it's also important to remember the other structures on your property.

    If you have a free-standing garage or an outbuilding or shed, consider installing gutters on those structures as well.  Aside from the obviously annoyance of stepping out of your car into a waterfall, it's just as important to protect the concrete slab on which your structure is built.  Allowing water to pool up around the outside of any building may eventually damage the foundation or floor, eroding the soil underneath and and encouraging uneven settling and cracks.

    There is also an aesthetic element to consider.  If you are replacing the gutters on your home, adding matching gutters to all your structures improves the look of your property and increases property value.

Click the image for a larger view.Here is a little job we did as a donation for the Hands on Children's Museum in Olympia. They needed to carry water away from the street and into a collection area in their outdoor park. This is a fun little project because we not only solved their drainage problem, but the kids can see how water flows. The outdoor gardens around the museum building have water features so this little gutter system fits right in.

    If you have an outbuilding, like a shed or detached garage, it's important to install a gutter system, just like it is for your house, to provide proper drainage and prevent ground erosion and damage to the foundation or concrete slab. ...
