The main purpose of guttering is to protect the buildings foundations by channelling water running from the roof away from the base of the building. This helps to prevent corrosion by channelling the water collected in the rain gutter to the down pips to either a drain or collection point. Gutters can be constructed from a variety of materials including cast iron, lead, zinc, steel, aluminium or UPVC and we can offer a choice and a range designs and colours to suit your home.
