I joined this site just a few weeks ago and have enjoyed it thus far.

I'm Guenther, owner of Ornametals in Alabama. We manufacture copper gutters and zinc gutters. It's a niche market but we know there is more potential to grow. My family has been working in copper since 1812.

Facebook and Twitter are good but this has much more applicable conversations. Thanks and feel free to shoot me a message.

Besten Dank

I have a question for you. What causes Black spots on 6 week old copper gutters? I tried to simply rub them off with no success. It was cold and wet when they were installed. I'll try to load a picture. Thanks

Exposure to just about anything. Moisture in the air, salts in water, etc.

It is called a patina and it is a very desirable thing to have on most exterior exposed copper.

At least...I think most people want that patina look.

Patina yes, it's just real spotty now. I'm sure it will be fine with time. Thanks
