Aluminium is a popular material for guttering. It’s significantly more expensive than PVC gutters, but it will last considerably longer and is more robust and impact resistant, rendering it a good investment. Aluminium guttering is generally manufactured in one of two different alternatives. Cast aluminium is more expensive but has a traditional appearance and can be matched to numerous pre-existing cast iron gutters. Seamless aluminium guttering is often marginally less expensive and has a sophisticated appearance. Seamless guttering is manufactured using an aluminium rolling machine which can produce lengths to fit any building size without joints. This leads to an exceptionally durable gutter which demands less maintenance than other types as without joints there are less points of failure. Seamless guttering has an extremely modern aesthetic and is well suited to modern properties.
Aluminium guttering will not corrode or rust, rendering it an extremely appealing material for use in guttering, in particular in areas that experience considerable snowfall or frequent heavy rain. Aluminium guttering can be powder painted to a variety of colours, so it is an excellent option for use on properties that have painted window or door frames as it can be coloured to accommodate these. In addition, aluminium is widely recycled, and a huge percentage of the aluminium guttering being produced makes use of recycled aluminium. In conjunction with the long life-span of these guttering systems, aluminium is a surprisingly green option.
