Seamless Aluminium Gutters Guttering in South Africa

Even though they may cost more, the durability of Aluminium Gutters beats any other Guttering system. Most guttering today is plastic and its great. Its relatively cheap and effective but it can carry some problems. If it is not put up professionally it can leak. The joints can "creep" open and leak and the colour can fade in the sunlight.

An alternative to plastic is seamless aluminium which has no such problems. Sheet aluminium is pressed, in the back of a van, on a pressing machine which can simply churn out miles of the stuff depending on the length of the roll.

As you can see on the left the machine has been set to turn out Ogee shaped guttering and the first 2 feet of brown gutter is coning out of the machine. The rolls of aluminium come in various colours and the machine used here can be set to either Taurus or Ogee mould. This has the advantage, as well as looking attractive on new buildings, it is the shape of much of the cast iron gutters used in times gone by. This of course means that it can be used as a good match on older properties.

After pressing the brackets are clipped into the gutter shape and the gutter is measured on the roof for the position of the down pipe. Thew gutter is then nailed or screwed to the facia board at the correct slope, or fall. A plastic insert is sealed in position to direct water into the down pipe and a stop end is sealed to the end of the gutter. Its a simple, painless operation which takes no more time than plastic gutters, is about 40% more expensive than them but will last a lifetime if installed correctly.
