This was a private build for Keith Huntingon, the Construction Director for Kier Living himself. Keith and his installer were familiar with plastic but were persuaded by the great look of steel to give it a try.
Rainclear provided a ‘take-off’ service to work out just what would be needed in both the depth of gutter and number of down pipes required to achieve the necessary ‘flow’; and the lengths, angles and brackets required for a long-lasting and secure fit. With the site being in a remote location, this took any guess work out of the equation to ensure a happy installer and a satisfied end customer.
Keith told us “We feel the gutters/downpipes were a perfect choice for the house and cope admirably with the serious downpours we encounter in the hills!
Initially they appeared tricky to fit, unfamiliar, but after a few attempts with the right tools they were quite easy and efficient to fit and very well made/robust.
As soon as we have any requirements for steel gutters I will be in touch!”
With great looks and a good range of colours in a robust 3 layer coating, it is a great time for this galvanised steel rainwater system to rival uPVC and other materials. The initial outlay is now comparable to the premium uPVC market and as it is 100% recycleable it need not cost the earth either!
