Seamless Aluminium Guttering
Unlike plastic and wood, seamless aluminium gutters are not affected by the weather. Wood in particular is extremely susceptible to rot, whilst plastic shrinks and fades. Unlike aluminium, both alternatives are at risk of cracks due to changes in temperature or leaks through the joints.
By contrast, our corrosion resistant, seamless aluminium guttering will not chip, warp or crack and is therefore the choice material for households and businesses that care about the long term affect rainwater can have on their premises.
Seamless aluminium guttering is installed as a continuous length of guttering, rolled out on-site using a specialist machine that is housed in the back of our vehicle. The flat aluminium coil, which is fed through the machine, is extruded in one of two sizes (one for domestic installations and a slightly larger width for commercial property) in lengths which fit your premises exactly. Every single aluminium gutter is made-to-measure, ensuring total precision with every installation. This also means there is no waste, unlike with wood and plastic which is purchased in pre-defined lengths.
Hidden brackets concealed within the seamless gutter itself fix to your fascia board. Where your fascia boards are rotten, we replace them with preservative treated timber. Hidden brackets mean that the lengths of seamless gutters are uninterrupted by unsightly fixings. Joints (on the corners) are riveted together and sealed using a high grade sealant which is applied on the inside.
Our seamless aluminium gutters will last at least 30 years, with the minimum of maintenance required. We provide a 10 year guarantee on all complete gutter systems, ensuring your complete peace of mind when working with Purdy's Aluminium Gutters. Furthermore, we treat your property like our own, insuring everything is left clean and tidy.
Although aluminium guttering is fitted by only a relatively small number of contractors, we frequently receive feedback from customers who are surprised at how affordable it is. To find out more, please feel free to give us a call.
Disadvantages of using plastic gutters
- The maximum length per piece is 4 meters
- Plastic is susceptible to shrinkage and cracking due to changes in temperature - that includes the warm sun in the morning after a cold night
- Plastic can become very brittle in winter - putting a ladder up against a brittle gutter it may cause it to crack
Disadvantages of using timber gutters
- The maximum length per piece is 6 meters
- Timber gutters need painting every two years
- Similarly to plastic, timber gutters are purchased in pre-determined lengths and then bought to site - generally this creates a lot of waste
- Due to the thickness of the timber (its profile), the capacity of the gutter (that is the volume of water it can carry) is far less than that of an aluminium gutter
