Thinking about new guttering? Well, you’ve come to the right place. Next question is what type of material are you going to choose?
Here at GutterArt, we specialise in providing affordable aluminium guttering for our domestic customers. It’s a material we’re confident gives long-lasting results for our customers and we’re experts in our field when it comes to quality, made-to-measure installation.
So, what are 5 benefits of choosing aluminium guttering?
When you’re choosing a material to use for guttering, you don’t want to have to be choosing another one again in a few years’ time! Durability is one of the most important factors when choosing material for any structural project. Especially if you’re thinking of moving properties at some point – buyers will be asking questions about materials used etc and you can position your choice as a selling point.
Aluminium doesn’t rust, so it’s an ideal choice for long-term durability. It has an expected lifecycle of around 30 years with good maintenance.
This makes it a very cost-effective choice. When you factor in the durability and initial cost, it makes it a very appealing prospect.
Aesthetics wise, aluminium is a really good option for most colour schemes and materials used in the exterior of your property. It’s a really neutral material that can mix it up with almost anything and seamlessly fit in with your style. It complements anything from modern new builds to older properties.
There’s also a wide array of manufactured colours available to suit whatever the colour scheme you’re looking for.
Exposure to the sun with some guttering materials can cause colour bleaching over time too, but aluminium doesn’t suffer from this, so it can maintain its appearance and aesthetic. In fact, it can pretty much look just like it did when it was first installed.
Aluminium isn’t affected by temperature changes and thermal expansion, so it won’t crack or shatter. This is useful because it means that there won’t be any leaks that you’d not noticed due to temperature issues. Over time, this means less maintenance and issues to deal with.
Regular cleaning out of leaves and dirt from the gutters is a given, but apart from that, aluminium requires very little maintenance to keep things running smoothly. The material doesn’t need painting or much protection either.
Installation is Easy
The great thing for us and you when we’re installing is that it’s relatively straight-forward to install on your property. It’s a very lightweight material, so there won’t be any problems with delivering and installing it, because it’s easy to manoeuvre into place.
Soldering of the joints isn’t necessary either, which means that it’s simple to attach to your property’s structure – especially as we’re experts and have done this thousands of times. We can install your guttering in no time at all, which is hassle free for you and leaves you to get on with the rest of your day.
