Why Aluminium Guttering is a Smart Choice for Your Home

Compared to plastic guttering, this system has a much longer lifespan and is not prone to cracking after a few months. It can withstand those harsh British storms!
An Eco Concious Choice

Steel guttering is also another popular alternative, and is cheaper than aluminium and cast iron rainwater systems. it comes in a range of RAL colours, including RAL9005 black.

Why Choose Aluminium Guttering?
Aluminium guttering is a smart investment for any homeowner. Not only does it provide a sleek look to your home's exterior, but it also offers many benefits when compared with other systems such as uPVC.
Firstly, aluminium guttering is incredibly durable. It can withstand extreme weather conditions, such as heavy rain, snow and hail. Unlike other materials, such as plastic, it is not prone to cracking or breaking. This means that your guttering will last for many years, without the need for repairs or replacements.
Secondly, this system is lightweight, making it easy to install. This is a major advantage over cast iron, which can be heavy to work with and tough to install.
Another benefit of aluminium guttering is that it's low-maintenance and is not susceptible to rot or decay. This means that you don't need to spend time and money on sanding, staining, or painting your guttering. Simply clean it periodically with a hose or pressure washer, and it will look great.
Aluminium rainwater systems are also highly resistant to corrosion. This is especially important if you live in a coastal area like Devon or Cornwall, where saltwater and other environmental factors can cause metal to rust and deteriorate quickly.
With metal gutters, you don't need to worry about this problem. It will remain corrosion-free, even in harsh coastal conditions.
It's also a cost-effective option. While it may be slightly more expensive than other materials such plastic, it offers superior quality and longevity. This means that you will save money in the long run, as you won't need to replace your guttering system as frequently. The system is also fully recyclable!
