Common Questions

Buying roofing material can be daunting, especially when ordering them online. With over 40 years of experience in roofing, however, we get asked a lot of questions about our growing range of plastic guttering. Here are some of the most common questions with answers for each!

Which Materials is Best – Plastic or Metal?

Both metal and plastic guttering are strong and durable. Unlike metal, however, plastic guttering is lightweight. Because of this, plastic guttering requires less support and is considerably easier to fit by DIYers. 

If you live in an area that experiences severe snow throughout several months, metal guttering is likely the best choice. Although, you can reduce the chance of your plastic guttering from bowing by clearing it of debris regularly.

How Often Should I Replace My Guttering?

You needn’t replace your plastic guttering unless it is bowing or leaking. If you have metal guttering, however, you should also keep an eye out for rusting. In most circumstances, you can simply replace the damaged piece of guttering. If you are experiencing leaks from multiple corner pieces or downpipes, however, you may wish to replace your entire gutter system.

How Do I Care for My Guttering?

Both metal and plastic guttering is easy to care for. Simply use a hedgehog gutter brush to remove any debris that has built up. This should be done 1 – 2 times per year, with particularly attention being necessary before and after winter. 

You may also benefit from preventative measures. This includes a gutter guard, which is placed on top of your gutters to prevent leaves, sticks and other debris from finding their way into your guttering system.
