Why copper guttering?
Copper was mankind’s first metal and was used during the Stone Age over 10,000 years ago. Over the course of the millennia, mankind became increasingly proficient at handling this metal, deploying it for the most varied tasks – for example, hammering, heating, forging, or mixing it with other metals to create alloys such as lead, silver, or pewter.

The discovery that copper and tin could easily be mixed provided the name for an era: the Bronze Age. All great cultures and civilizations worked with copper. The Colossus of Rhodes was made from copper and the Ancient Egyptians used copper for their water pipes.

But the name for copper actually came from the Romans, which they called “aes cyprium”, which later became “cuprum”, the origin of today’s copper.
There are very few materials that maintain their technical function and shape over extremely long periods of time. These include copper, a material that creates its own protective layer and that – with its patina – only reveals its full design qualities during the aging process.

It is remarkable that around 40% of all copper applications are in construction. And there are countless further copper alloys, of which brass and bronze, in particular are being increasingly deployed in architecture.

Quality, durability, beauty have been the compelling attributes of this material for centuries. Copper has been used as a roof and wall cladding material for buildings since time immemorial. In addition to the functional characteristics, one of the primary reasons for this, is undoubtedly its aesthetic qualities.

To this end, its – as a result of weathering – constantly changing patina influences the appearance of a building, whereby the original coppery sheen of the metal gradually develops into a sequence of warm, brown shades before the external surface acquires its characteristic green.

With Masterpiece gutter systems, you'll find the perfect balance of form and function that will only add to the finish of any architectural design. One look at its smooth lines and the details of its suspension and collection accessories will be all it takes to see that Masterpiece has taken the function of collecting rain to an art form that attracts attention and praise.

A side-by-side comparison of Masterpiece components to traditional gutter systems will reveal a wealth of well-planned visible advantages that not only improve the function but also the aesthetics of the structure to which it is applied. Take for example the corner pieces. Instead of joining two angles to create one, the corner pieces of Masterpiece gutters systems are pressure-formed, one-piece miters that provide sturdier construction with the bonus of enhanced finish and appearance.

Masterpiece downleaders and elbows feature the same seamless beauty as the mitered corners, with smooth-fitting formed joints completely devoid of the crimps found in many gutter systems today. The accessory pieces of Masterpiece gutter systems feature the same attention to endurance and form. All it takes is the simple comparison of a Masterpiece component to show you that this is a gutter system that will undoubtedly surpass its own 100-year designed life expectancy.
