Buy Copper Downpipe Shoes Online at EasyMerchant
Introducing our top-quality copper downpipe shoe, an essential component of our copper rainwater systems at EasyMerchant, the UK’s leading online builder’s merchant. Available in two different sizes – 80mm Round and 80 x 80mm Square – this product is designed to be installed at the bottom of the downpipe when it’s not being connected to a drainage pipe or gully, ensuring efficient water flow and preventing backflow.
Our copper downpipe shoe is easy to install, requiring no specialist tools. Any competent tradesperson can fit it quickly and effortlessly using our silicone sealant and copper pop rivets. This ease of installation, combined with a minimum life of 25 years for the sealant, makes our copper downpipe shoe a practical and cost-effective choice for both professional roofers and self-builders.
One of the key advantages of our copper downpipe shoe is its low maintenance. Copper requires virtually no upkeep, other than the occasional removal of debris. This makes it an ideal choice for those seeking a hassle-free solution for their guttering systems.
In terms of aesthetics, our copper downpipe shoe is second to none. The copper will start to mellow within weeks of installation, transitioning through various shades of brown and bronze before eventually forming a unique green/blue patina. This natural aging process gives the copper a distinctive, attractive appearance that enhances the exterior of any building.
The copper downpipe shoe is not just about looks, though. The 0.6mm copper used in our products has a life expectancy of at least 100 years. When exposed to the elements, copper guttering develops a protective patina, ensuring durability and resistance to corrosion in virtually any atmosphere. Unlike other materials, copper does not suffer from underside corrosion, making it one of the most competitive building materials available over the lifecycle of a building.
For those who prefer a quicker patina finish, a solution can be applied after installation that will age the copper gutter within a few hours. However, we recommend allowing the copper to age naturally for the best results.
Please note that delivery of these products typically takes between 10-15 days. Order your copper downpipe shoe today in the size that suits your needs and experience the superior quality and performance of our copper rainwater systems.
