Contemporary Aluminium Gutters


Why Choose SNAP-IT Aluminium?

The extruded aluminium (Snap-it) range, sold by Trade Warehouse, is built slightly thicker than steel, and therefore offers good durability, lasting in excess of 25 years. Due to the fact that most Snap-it gutters are built with larger profiles, this range is a brilliant choice for large commercial and industrial properties, where runoff is high.

Extruded aluminium gutters are also extremely flexible and easy to install, and most individuals with some DIY experience will be able to fit the system. Each of the gutter components ‘snap’ together easily with no screws or bolts, in the end giving a smooth-looking finish to suit the property. There are a variety of profile types and finishes available through Trade Warehouse, including half round, vintage moulded ogee and contemporary joggle box sections.

Many architects and homeowners opt for this stylish aluminium guttering range because of its excellent eco-credentials. 80% of the UK homes that use aluminium gutters have been created using recycled aluminium, and the twenty-five-year life span means the system will last a lifetime, even when exposed to the temperamental UK climate.

A Contemporary Choice

Extruded aluminium comes in a wide range of colours and profiles to suit your project. 

It is lighter and cheaper than cast iron, but much tougher than steel and – the best part is that there are no nuts or bolts are required for installation. Simply order the guttering to your property, get the installation guide, and you’re good to go! To install, fascia brackets are fixed to the fascia board or rafters. The gutters are then fixed to the fascia brackets and sealant is added to the unions, outlets and stop ends. It’s that simple!

This rainwater system was designed to replace the traditional uPVC guttering, which can crack or fade in a few years. This system lasts in excess of 25 years under the correct maintenance. Get in touch if you have any queries

Extruded Aluminium Guttering FAQs

Extruded aluminium guttering is a type of guttering system made from aluminium that is created by forcing the metal through a shaped opening in a die. This process creates a continuous length of guttering that is seamless, strong and durable.

Extruded aluminium guttering has several advantages over other types of guttering systems. It is lightweight, easy to install, and requires minimal maintenance. Additionally, it is resistant to rust and corrosion, which means it will last for many years without deteriorating.

While it is possible, it is recommended to hire a professional guttering installer to ensure the job is done correctly. Improper installation can lead to leaks and other issues that can cause damage to your home.

The system requires minimal maintenance, but it is important to clean it regularly to prevent build up of debris. Simply use a ladder and a hose to flush out any unwanted bits and ensure that the system is functioning properly. Additionally, it is important to check for any damage or cracks and repair them promptly to prevent further damage.
