Benefits of Aluminium Guttering
Considering replacing your gutters? Aluminium is an increasingly popular choice for gutter material. These kinds of gutters are durable, affordable, and incredibly easy to keep in excellent condition. Professional roofers and contractors agree that you can’t go wrong choosing aluminium for your gutters.
At Advanced Roofline, we have years of experience and expertise in roofline and rainwater drainage products. That’s why we are committed to providing only the highest quality products to our customers.
Today, we’re taking a look at some of the reasons we’d recommend choosing aluminium for your guttering. Here are six benefits of aluminium you might not have considered.
1 – Long Lasting
The number one reason people choose aluminium is its durability. Aluminium will hold up for a long time in a variety of weather conditions no matter how adverse. You never have to worry about aluminium rusting over time. This long-lasting material gives you more value for your money.
The last thing you want to do is have to replace your guttering just a few years down the line. With regular maintenance, aluminium gutters could easily last for decades. As a cost-effective option, it’s second to none.
2 – Affordable
Another point worth mentioning is just how cost-effective aluminium is. Compared to some other materials, aluminium is both affordable and durable. The installation is quick and painless and as we’ll explore more further down, it’s incredibly easy to maintain.
3 – Weather resistant
Another amazing benefit of aluminium is its resistance to thermal expansion. Some materials may crack due to weather changes. However, with aluminium, that will never be an issue. This also means you won’t have to worry about any fractures in the material that could cause leaks.
4 – Easy to maintain
Like we mentioned, aluminium won’t be affected by adverse weather conditions. This means there’s less to worry about when it comes to maintenance. Apart from regular cleaning out of leaves and dirt, aluminium gutters require very little upkeep.
On top of that, they don’t need to be repainted or require any further protection. Other guttering materials, like UPVC, can easily become badly damaged over time due to rain, sunlight, and hailstones. This notably shortens the life expectancy of a UPVC gutter.
5 – Quick installation
One of the many reasons professionals prefer aluminium gutters is because of how easy it is to install. Aluminium is a lightweight material, easy to transport and deliver, and no problem to manoeuvre into position. With our years of expertise we can handle this quickly and efficiently so you don’t have to wait around to get on with your day.
As you might expect, there’s no need to solder any joints together, and attachment to any structure is easy. Aluminium gutters are incredibly versatile and can easily fit the design of any style of house. Other materials like UPVC are just not as flexible.
6 – Aesthetic value
The typical aluminium guttering looks neutral and blends seamlessly into any design. However, you can find aluminium gutters in a range of colours to suit you. Other materials may require painting to look the way you want, but aluminium gutters are readily available in a wide range of colours.
At Advanced Roofline, we provide seamless aluminium gutters featuring no joints or fasteners. This effectively minimises leakages and eliminates any need for repairs.
