THE ESSENTIAL GUIDE TO GUTTERING

Gutters collect water running off the roof and  channel them away from the building via a downpipe. Our guttering shapes come in a few options such as half round – a semicircle shape, square, ogee, deep – a deeper version of half round, miniflow – a small version perfect for smaller builds or greenhouses and finally cast iron effect. This guide will inform you on how guttering works and the purpose of each part.

Running Outlet
A running outlet creates a channel to connect the gutter to the downpipe

Gutter Union
A union can be used to connect separate lengths of gutter

Offset Bend
Offset bends are at an angle enabling guttering to travel from the fascia  and adjoin to the downpipe to ensure a flush fit to the wall They come in a 67.5  (112) degree angle

Stopend
A stop end caps off the gutter to prevent water escaping. There are internal or external options.

Gutter clip / support bracket
Clips adhere either the downpipe to the wall or secures in place gutter to the fascia, keeping it sturdy.

Shoe
The shoe directs water in to a gullt

Downpipe Connector
