Guttering Style & Colours
“What about the traditional period look I love so much? ” Cast iron effect Guttering And Downpipes
At Enhance Exteriors, we supply and fit aluminium or cast-iron gutters with a choice of period and heritage profiles. Perfect for older properties, buildings in conservation areas and places of architectural or historic interest, these traditional guttering types comes with an attractive coloured finish. Installations are undertaken to exceptionally high standards.
CLOGGED GUTTERING AND DOWNPIPES
Leaves, twigs, soil, winter debris and even roofing materials which have eroded through adverse weather can clog the top of the guttering system and the downpipe opening. We recommend that uPVC fascias, uPVC soffits and the gutters, in particular, have at least one inspection every year – ideally when the seasons change from winter to spring.
If your Stevenage, Hitchin or Letchworth property is surrounded by trees, an accumulation of debris or other blockages will occur more frequently. Mesh and hedgehog gutter guards can be integrated to stop waste materials and debris from obstructing the water flow. Indeed, these are typical features on all guttering installations from Enhance Exteriors.
SAGGING AND BADLY-PITCHED GUTTERING AND DOWNPIPES
Gutters and downpipes can pull away from the supporting fascia and soffit boards if they are not securely fastened or if there is too much debris weighing the guttering down. This will cause the guttering to sag, which needs to be tightened with new screws and tussles. If this is left unchecked, sagging affects the angles of the gutters.
To effectively drain standing water from, Stevenage, Hitchin, Letchworth, Hertfordshire or Bedfordshire properties with flat roofs, the structure of a gutter should gradually slope a quarter of an inch for every 10 feet of piping installed. Sagging or poorly pitched gutters can affect drainage and limit excess water from running off properly.
