Aluminium Rain Gutter & Downspout A rain gutter (also known as eavestrough, eaves channel, guttering or simply as a gutter) is a narrow channel, or trough, forming the component of a roof system which collects and diverts rainwater shed by the roof. A rain gutter may be a: I. Roof integral trough along the lower edge of the roof slope which is fashioned from the roof covering and flashing materials. II. Discrete trough of metal, or other material that is suspended beyond the roof edge and below the projected slope of the roof. III. Wall integral structure beneath the roof edge, traditionally constructed of masonry, fashioned as the crowning element of a wall. The main purpose of a rain gutter is to protect a building's foundation by channeling water away from its base. They also help to reduce erosion, prevent leaks in basements and crawlspaces, protect painted surfaces by reducing exposure to water, and provide a means to collect rainwater for later use. Rain gutters can be constructed from a variety of materials, including cast iron, lead, zinc, galvanised steel, painted steel, copper, painted aluminium, PVC (and other plastics), concrete, stone, and wood. Water collected by a rain gutter is fed, usually via a downspout (traditionally called a leader or conductor), from the roof edge to the base of the building where it is either discharged or collected. A collection system strategy for water carried from rain gutters may include a rain barrel or a cistern Without rain gutters, your home would be far more susceptible to water damage. Rainwater would collect in your yard and come into direct contact with your home’s foundation, patio, and other outdoor structures. Leaks would also occur more frequently without rain gutters.

Aluminium Rain Gutter & Downspout Advantages Rain gutters are important protection mechanisms for your home because they keep water from damaging your roof or siding. They are normally made with steel, copper, aluminum, or vinyl. Aluminum rain gutters have numerous advantages over the over varieties. Some of these advantages include durability, cost, and installation. Durability One of the first advantages of aluminum rain gutters is durability. Steel gutters are commonly used, but they will start to rust after five years after the paint breaks down. Aluminum rain gutters are more durable and will never rust. Most gutters made from aluminum will last around 30 years. In addition to their durability, these gutters are easy on your wallet. Cost Another advantage of aluminum rain gutters is the cost. They are one of the cheapest types available. Some steel gutters can cost as much as $10 per foot. Aluminum rain gutters usually average between $2 and $4 per foot. Besides being one of the cheapest options, you also won't have much trouble installing them yourself. Installation Aluminum rain gutters are also easy to install. Steel and copper gutters need to be installed by professionals because they require soldering of the joints. Aluminum rain gutters do not require soldering during installation. They are also lightweight, so they can be shaped very easily during installation. Color One of the next advantages of aluminum rain gutters is color. Most other types of gutters are only available in a limited variety of colors. Also, other types of gutters like steel can be difficult to paint. Aluminum rain gutters are manufactured in a wide variety of colors. If you can't find the color you need, they can easily be painted to a suitable color. Leaking One of the final advantages of aluminum rain gutters is that they don't leak. These gutters can come in seamless designs. Seamless gutters are cut from one long piece of aluminum instead of attaching smaller pieces together. Since these aluminum rain gutters have no joiners, there chances of a leak occurring are reduced.
