Is the copper new?
Annette PashayanAugust 14, 2013
I have a small portion of the house with copper roof and down spouts, but it has turned dark with age. Do the owners of this house really go out with copper cleaner every few months or was this just installed? ie, how should one maintain outdoor copper?

Good question, Annette. I believe the cooper is new. We handled the restoration of the painted surfaces, not the gutters. In my experience, I believe most homeowners let Copper patina. It would be very difficult to maintain the copper, new look. It does look cool, but not normal to leave it that way. So my guess is that it is now a more patina finish. It is not recommended to seal up copper with any clear coat. So either have fun polishing or let it naturally patina.
