Guttering will prevent water soaking into the fabrics of a property; it does this by collecting and directing rain water away from your house. It is important that water doesn’t soak into the walls or foundations of a building. By preventing this you reduce the risk of breeding mould or rot into wooden joists or trusses. Downpipes are actually connected to the guttering at a property, though depending on the run set. With the downpipes connected to the guttering, this channels the water down to a storm drain where the water is discharged safely away from your home.
Gutters and downspouts also come in a variety of styles, sizes and colours. Half round and k-style are the most popular, with white, grey and black being hugely favoured among our customers though various traditional wood effects i.e mahogany and light oak also being popular.
