Steel guttering is growing in popularity in the UK. Steel gutters are competitively priced in comparison to PVC, and very reasonably priced when compared to aluminium or cast iron options. Steel guttering is tougher than PVC, and won’t split or warp with temperature changes. PVC is also susceptible to damage by ultra violet rays as time passes, but steel guttering won’t degrade in this manner. Because of this, steel guttering systems last considerably longer than PVC, with many manufacturers offering 15+ year guarantees. In addition, steel is very sustainable as it can be heavily recycled.
While steel can be heavier than other materials and for that reason will require extra brackets and supports than other options, but professional guttering companies will be able to advise you of the best way to make sure your steel guttering is suitably supported. Steel guttering will come in a variety of different RAL colours to accommodate any property, and can be galvanised to add further protection against weather damage. Steel gutters are seen as occupying a very appealing middle ground between cost and durability, where they provide significant value for money over their expected lifespan. Steel guttering is as inexpensive as PVC while not suffering from a reduced life expectancy, and steel is significantly lower priced than aluminium or cast iron alternatives.
