Why have guttering?
Rainwater is a natural element but imagine the damage it could cause to your property if it’s not directed and controlled by an efficient and properly maintained guttering system. Every home needs good gutters. A well fitted, efficient guttering system collects and diverts rainwater away from the roof, keeping your roof dry and in good repair. If your gutters are cracked or leaky, this can lead to costly repairs to your roof, walls, exterior doors and more. Gutters are installed on the end of the roof at the top of the fascia board and are then attached to a downpipe, which runs down the side of the property into the drain, diverting water safely underground to the drains.

Square guttering is the classic square drain pipe and gutter system, which effectively removes rainwater from the roof into the drain. These gutters tend to have greater capacity and more rigidity than circular gutters.
Classic Half Rounded
Half-rounded gutters are one are also a common variety of guttering. They are sawn down the middle to leave a rounded bottom and open top, which encourages fast water flow by channelling water to the lowest point of the curve. These gutters are often made of aluminium and are popular due to their ability to blend well with a variety of properties.
Ogee style guttering
Ogee gutters are deeper and more decorative, with an increased capacity to deal with large amounts of water flow. The design is based on the box gutter design, which creates more angles for the water to flow to the downpipe. It’s highly decorative look is similar to that of indoor crown moulding and is an added attraction. This style is functional, affordable, attractive and widely produced by our manufacturers.
