Pre Painted Vs Primed
Pre-painted cast iron is more expensive than primed cast iron, but is a better investment in the long run because of its factory-applied three-coat system. The paint has been specially developed to give a smooth and long lasting finish to the cast iron which is very difficult to replicate on-site. Pre-painted black is available in 2-5 working days.
Primed cast iron gutters are cheaper than the pre-painted range, and come with a temporary 'transit coating' of protective grey oxide primer. They are then painted & installed by a contractor on-site, allowing you to complement other finishes on your property. These products should be painted immediately, as exposure can lead to corrosion.
A Durable Rainwater System
Manufacturer coatings have improved since the 19th century, and if maintained correctly, cast iron gutters can last in excess of 50 years, possibly even longer! That's why we often recommend these gutters in place of steel - because they look fantastic on heritage properties.
Here at Trade Warehouse, our team has worked on delivering cast iron guttering for a number of listed buildings. We work closely with a renowned foundry to get the highest quality cast iron rainwater products.
An Eco Concious Choice
Cast Iron guttering is 100% recyclable, and because of its long lifespan of up to 50 years, it reduces the need for other materials. Plastic guttering is prone to cracking and often needs attention after a few years.
Some research suggests that the by-products of iron oxide enhances the growth of plant life. Our mission is to sell more products which take our natural envrioenment into consideration.
