Copper Gutters ChicagoWhy Does Your Copper Gutters Patina?

Your copper gutter system will change color as it reacts with different substances, like: carbon dioxide, oxygen, water and different pollutants, which are all found in the air around us. When the copper is exposed to oxygen and water, it reacts and forms a black layer. If the copper reacts with carbon dioxide in the air, it forms a green patina. The copper can react to pollutants and acid rain, which will again form a green patina. These extra layers can be easily removed from the copper surface, but they protect it against further reaction, stopping tarnishing, rusting and corrosion.

If left, over time, the copper oxide layer will change to a light green color, known as patina. This results from several different reactions between the copper and gases within the atmosphere. Many people prefer the look of the patina. If however, you prefer the original color of copper, then it is quite simple to clean the layer from the surface of the copper and it will appear as new.
