Guttering in Market Harborough

Guttering is a crucial facet of the roofing of your building. It provides visual benefits as well as making sure rainwater that runs off your roof is correctly channeled away from the edge of the building and into drains. The main element to selecting the best guttering for your home is understanding the requirements of your pre-existing roof. For example, steeper or more substantial roofs will demand guttering capable of channeling a larger flow of water. It might be tempting to simply replace like for like, but a professional guttering company can survey your house to understand your needs, and give you advice on the best guttering for your roof.

Guttering is available in several different types and materials. For materials, PVC is the most popular. PVC guttering is very reasonably priced while still being resilient. It's available in a variety of colours and styles. However, guttering is also produced from metal, typically either steel, aluminium or cast iron. While these materials are normally higher priced than PVC, they also last longer and are well suited to period properties as they have a more traditional aesthetic. Different moulds of guttering will also impact the flow of the water. Half round and square guttering are standard and will suit many homes, while deep flow or ogee guttering are ideal for use on buildings that require increased water flow. Ogee guttering also has a unique mould which has an impressive appearance. Guttering is also available in a variety of colorings, from traditional black or white to brown and grey. In addition, some PVC guttering can be found in a cast iron effect.

Market Harborough

Market Harborough is a market town within the Harborough district of Leicestershire. It is the administrative head office of Harborough District Council, and has a population of 22911 inhabitants. Previously at a crossroads for both road and rail, the A6 now circumvents the town to the east, and the A14, which contains east-west traffic, is 6 miles to the south. The town is situated on land that historically comprised Rockingham Forest, a royal hunting forest used by medieval monarchs after William I. There are two villages within the boundaries of Market Harborough. Great Bowden can be located a mile from the town centre, and Little Bowden is under half a mile from the town centre. The three centres have mainly merged as a result of ribbon development and infill. Dominating the town centre is the steeple of St. Dionysius Parish Church, which rises straight from the street as there is no church lawn surrounding the structure. The Old Grammar School, a reasonably modest wood structure going back to 1614, has actually emerged as a sign of the town. The town square is mainly pedestrianised and surrounded by several buildings, even though the majority of buildings situated in the High Street are Georgian structures that continue to be mainly undamaged. Market Harborough went through substantial change in the latter half of the 20th century. This includes the establishment of the head office for Golden Wonder crisp manufacturers, and the demolition of the old Symington factory to the construction of Eden Court shops and flats. In 1968, the centre of Market Harborough was labelled as a conservation area. In 2007, its popular park, Welland Park, was bestowed Green Flag Award Status, recognising quality and high ecological standards. For all of your house upgrades, make sure to make use of reliable professionals in Market Harborough to make certain of quality.

    FAQs

    Is it easy to replace gutters?

    If you live in an average home with an average amount of guttering and you’re used to a bit of DIY, it’s relatively easy to replace gutters. But if you have a home that’s more than two-storey or you have guttering that’s more complicated, it’s best left to the professionals.

    Lots of homes these days have uPVC guttering. uPVC is a hard-wearing plastic that will last a long time without much maintenance except your usual gutter clearing. It’s relatively light, so lots of people think it’s easy to replace uPVC gutters. If you live in a bungalow, you may be able to just use a ladder to take down your old guttering and replace it with new uPVC gutters, but if you live in a two-storey home it can be a bit more complicated. If you do attempt to replace your gutters yourself, make sure you’ve got a sturdy ladder that will comfortably reach the right height, and never rest it on the fascia or the guttering itself.

    If you have cast iron or copper guttering, this is much heavier and bulkier than uPVC. Certainly don’t try to replace these on your own – make sure you have another competent DIYer to help you. Reputable roofline specialists will use scaffold towers to make it easier to handle heavy gutters and they will always work in pairs on this type of guttering, so make sure you have the right tools and equipment to work with.

    Just because it’s easy to replace gutters, it doesn’t mean you should. It’s better to ask a reliable roofline company to help you, since they have the skills to fit guttering properly and have experience with working at height.

    How much do copper gutters cost?
    Copper gutters are expensive – there's no doubt about it. But the look it can give a property might be just what you’re after. uPVC guttering doesn’t suit every home, and while it’s the cheapest option, some properties might not even be able to have it – for example, if you live in a conservation area or listed building. So if you’re going to have them installed, how much do copper gutters cost? Prices start at £18 per linear metre for half-round copper guttering. If you add all the bits you’ll need to go with them, like brackets and clips, you could be looking at around £40 per metre. That’s about double the cost of a uPVC or aluminium guttering system and about the same as cast iron guttering. Add in the installation costs and the average cost of a copper guttering system is £2,390. But copper gutters have a look that can’t be replicated by any other material, so if your home will suit them it might be worth the investment. It might be tempting to try to install copper guttering yourself, especially if you’re used to doing DIY. But copper guttering can be quite heavy to handle and is more fragile than uPVC, so it’s best leaving it to the professionals. On two-storey homes, roofline specialists would probably use scaffold towers to help them keep stable while they install the guttering, and will work in pairs. Since they carry out copper gutter installations all the time, they’ll be used to handling it and ensuring that they don’t scratch or damage this expensive product. So while it might seem cheaper to do it yourself, it won’t if you damage your copper gutters and have to fork out for new ones.
    Do you need scaffolding to replace guttering?

    You don’t always need scaffolding to replace guttering. If your home is a bungalow, the tradespeople might only need a ladder to replace your guttering. It’s when your home is two storeys or more that scaffolding is more necessary.

    You might not need full scaffolding for a simple two-storey home. Guttering specialists use scaffold towers, which are the platforms you see underneath the scaffolding, where the installation is relatively straightforward. You might need scaffolding to replace guttering when there are obstructions to towers being used – for example, if you have a conservatory or the ground is very uneven. It's more likely that specialist roofline companies will use scaffold towers when necessary. Sole traders that replace guttering as part of their services may be comfortable using sturdy ladders.

    There’s no legal requirement to say that you must have scaffolding when fitting guttering, but it is a good idea when working on homes rather than bungalows. If you’re unsure whether you need full scaffolding for your gutter replacement project, get a few quotes from reputable businesses of different sizes. If you’ve been quoted by one company that you need full scaffolding whereas everyone else says that only towers are needed, it’s likely that the job is perfectly safe to carry out with just towers.

    How to install guttering and downpipes
    If you’re a competent DIYer, it’s not too difficult to install guttering and downpipes if you’ve got uPVC ones. uPVC is a type of plastic and therefore is relatively light, but if you’ve got cast iron or copper guttering you might find it more difficult to replace and install. When you install new guttering and downpipes, you’ll need to remove your old ones. It’s a good idea to tie some rope or cable ties around the existing guttering while you dismantle them so they don’t fall down. We’ve explained how to replace guttering in a previous FAQ, so here we’ll focus on the downpipes. It’s simple if you have the right tools, including a sturdy ladder, a drill and screwdriver and all the fixings and brackets you’ll need.
    1. Hang a plumb bob from the outlet to the drain to use as a guide while you draw several marks on the wall with a pencil to show you where the downpipe will run.
    2. Join the marks up with a straight edge, creating a line to show where the centre of the downpipe will be.
    3. Position a downpipe clip at the top of wall, in the centre of the pencil line. Mark the position of its fixing holes on the wall. If you need an offset bend, put a downpipe clip directly below the bend.
    4. Repeat the process down the wall. Make sure there is no more than 1.8 metres between pipe clips.
    5. Refer to the guttering manufacturer’s instructions to see which drill bit is required. Use a drill to drill the fixing holes and insert wall plugs.
    6. Fit the first piece of downpipe starting from the outlet and moving towards the drain.
    7. If you need to add more downpipe, join the two pieces with a pipe socket and clip. Leave a 10mm gap between the end of the pipe and the bottom of the pipe socket, because it will probably expand. Then attach a pipe clip over the joint.
    8. Continue attaching pipe clips down the length of the downpipe.
    9. If you need to, fit a downpipe show to direct the water into the drain. Attach a downpipe clip directly below the socket of the shoe.
    Although it seems easy, it’s always best to leave guttering works to the professionals. They’ve got experience with fitting neat and tidy guttering and downpipes, and they are used to working at height.
