The advantages of metal guttering

The advantages of metal guttering

When it comes to guttering, the materials used can vary from PVCu, various metals, concrete and even wood. We believe that metal guttering performs well and caters to all budgets and requrements.


Our team of guttering experts supply and install aluminium, steel and cast-iron gutters because we believe that metal is an excellent material to use in guttering. Not only is it exceptionally strong, it is long-lasting and looks great too, and each metal comes with its own set of specific benefits.

Steel guttering

Affordable 
Steel is the most affordable of the metal materials we offer for guttering and is therefore wonderfully cost-effective early on.
 
Strong
Steel gutters are stronger than PVCu products and offer a robust system.

Resists thermal affects
Rainclear’s galvanized steel guttering resists thermal expansion and contraction, which means that it remains unaffected from sudden fluctuations in temperature.

Great holding capacity
Our steel gutters are 20% deeper than other steel systems and provide better flow rates.

Recyclable
Steel has an excellent lifetime value, as it can be recycled.

Aluminium guttering

Durable
At 2-3mm wide, our extruded and pressed aluminium guttering is much wider than our steel guttering at 0.60mm, and is therefore more robust.

Flexible
Aluminium lends itself to fabrication, so is a great choice for more awkward sites.

Variety of styles
The SnapIT extruded aluminium range comes in half round, vintage and moulded ogee and in 26 different colours and finishes.

25 year life expectancy
80% of UK aluminium gutters are made from recycled materials and it will generally last 25 years.

Non rusting
Cast aluminium gutters do not rust, instead, oxidisation forms a natural protective layer.

Cast iron guttering

Vintage
Cast iron gutters have been a popular choice since the Victorian era. As such, they look right at home on older heritage and listed properties.

40-50 year life expectancy
When maintained properly, cast iron gutters can last up to 50 years, though some have lasted over 100!

Minimal maintenance
Cast iron gutters are highly durable and require little maintenance, making them a hassle free option.

Eco-friendly
Cast iron gutters use less natural materials to make than alternative guttering options. Iron ash expelled through oxidisation is good for the environment and promotes plant growth.


If you need to remove concrete guttering first, we can do that for you too. To find out more about our metal guttering and how they can benefit your business or home, contact our expert team on 01202 470044.
