Surrey – Copper

This customer in Surrey made his purchase of 115mm half round gutters with 80mm round downpipes in Copper on the website without any assistance. But when we saw the size of the order we gave him a call anyway – just to make sure he had found everthing he needed. The rafter brackets ordered were replaced with fasica brackets but otherwise he was most satisfied with the experience.

“I must say I was quite nervous spending close to 4K on a product sight unseen, but this is clearly a very high-quality product and can’t wait until it’s installed… The components are solid and beautifully manufactured. Top notch. I have also been impressed by the follow up calls… It’s been a pleasure dealing with your company.
Thank you,
Roy”

Copper is often overlooked or not even considered for rainwater systems in the UK. This is, in part, due to its fairly low use in the UK in the past. Copper has been much more widely used in other countries and has a proven track record of longevity – almost the most durable of all materials – even exposed to harsh marine environments, or to run off from wood shingles, copper performs incredibly well. Copper is not only durable but also offers a stunning aesthetic choice which just cannot be matched by other materials.
Consumers looking at the long-term impact on the environment recogniseit makes sense to put up something that won’t need replacing for 50+ years.

The customer in this case knew what he needed and went ahead and placed the order online without asking for help but if you want it you can access the experience and knowledge of the friendly sales team at Infinity Galvanised Steel by geting in touch by phone on 0800 644 44 28 or email info@infinityguttering.co.uk .

We can help make things easier with take-offs from architects drawings and same day quotes.

Argyll – Copper

Copper was chosen for this unique, custom build in the West of Scotland for its natural tendency to form a protective green patina. This corrosion of the outer surface of oxidised copper actually provides a protective coating over the metal beneath, regulating the speed of corrosion through the metal so that copper can last 50-100 years even in this location with its proximity to the sea. Copper, one of the most noble metals, makes a wonderfully low-maintenance option for guttering systems.
The client enjoyed doing most of the work himself on this project. A local architect, Douglas Guest, worked with him on a design based on an idea of the basic shape provided by the client. The site, on a quiet road with access to the sea – somewhere handy for the boat – was sheltered and natural, being sloping and wooded, mainly with mature oaks, that seemed to ask for a split level design and copper seemed to be the best material for the roof as it wouldn’t host moss or lichen. Some of the oaks that needed cutting down will be used as cladding on the tower, which will go grey like the bark of a tree, combined with the copper roof and gutters aging from a high sheen through a deeper reddish-brown to verdigris green, means the whole project should blend beautifully into the woodland setting.
It may be a more expensive choice, but its beauty, durability and recycle-ability – reducing environmental impact – makes it more cost-effective as the long-term advantages far outweigh the initial outlay.

“I am more than satisfied. I can recommend Rainclear for the quality of product and efficiency of service and delivery”
