    I've said it once and I'll say it again, I love copper gutters! There is something that screams quality and craftsmanship when I look at these. I would love to do something similar at my own home, thank you for sharing it. http://www.kfcroofing.com.au/catalog/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=3&zenid=f1fb6a44ba2a64cb16516cffccf1f28f

    Hi, thank you for your question!

    The builder for this home is Rocky Mountain West Construction in southern Utah. You may have to give them a call and see where they were purchased/made from. (801) 420-2788

    Copper was used for the
    gutters on this home so we could maintain the authenticity of the old
    world/Tuscan style. Back when this original style was first built,
    aluminum wasn't available. Copper was one of the only metals out there
    that was available which wouldn't corrode over time with so much
    exposure to the elements. Currently using copper is a bit cost
    prohibitive due to the commodity cost and in most cases aluminum gutters
    are cheap and so are prevalent and function fine but you sure can't
    beat the look of real copper on a home like this.

    This stone is a blend. Some of this stone is called Deer Creek Rubble. Great natural stone... http://nscutah.com/

1. Quick-clean the exterior and landscape. They don’t call it curb appeal for nothing. Check for loose or clogged gutters and broken or missing flashing materials, which help prevent leaks behind the gutters. Cut the lawn and trim the bushes. Make sure the garage doors open and close properly. Wipe down lawn furniture. Fix any dangling shutters. Estimated costs: Completely replacing gutters can be expensive; replacing just parts is more economical. A 10-foot gutter starts at $6; downspouts start at $8. High-end garage doors cost $1,000, but a decorative garage door hardware kit starts at $19.

GuttersIf you do nothing else in fall to get ready for winter, clean your gutters.A lot of products purport to save you the need to perform this possibly dangerous and at least tedious task. I have seen many of them fail when sediment builds up. They may buy you some time, but there are advantages to giving your house a periodic once-over, and the roof and gutters aren’t spots you’re likely to keep an eye on otherwise. So whether you hire someone or clean them yourself, I recommend using old-fashioned gutters and keeping them clean. Most homes have gutters attached to the edge of the roofline. The most common profile is the K-style gutter with a flat back that sits flush to the fascia board, though traditional homes often have half-round gutters, like the one shown here. Either way, an overflowing gutter is going to send water up and over the edge, and possibly into your home.Your Winter Home Maintenance Checklist
