Zinc gutteringis a long-lasting and eco-friendly rainwater system, lasting 50-100 years when maintained correctly. This is because it is non-ferrous so will not rust or chip/ peel. Our Quartz zinc guttering has a beautiful patina that is self healing and insoluble to rainwater, making it an ideal choice on both contemporary and heritage style properties. Over time…this layer will protect against harsh weather. Zinc is also 100% recyclable and prohibits the growth of fungus or mould, making it an ideal choice for those looking to reduce their carbon footprint.
We also supply natural zinc gutters which have a shiny surface and develop a patina over time (see image below). Depending on location, it can take up to 10 years for the matt grey patina to form.
While PVCu is a popular choice for many homeowners and builders, when you look at the long-term costs associated with plastic, zinc performs incredibly well on cost – we think it looks smarter too!
