Guttering in Swanscombe

Guttering is a key aspect of the roofing of your house. It offers visual advantages as well as making sure rainwater that runs off your roof is properly channeled away from the edge of the building and into drains. The key to deciding on the best guttering for your house is being familiar with the requirements of your pre-existing roof. For instance, steeper or bigger roofs will require guttering capable of channeling a larger flow of water. It may be tempting to simply exchange like for like, but an expert guttering company can survey the home to understand your needs, and suggest for you the most appropriate guttering for your roof. Guttering is available in a number of types and materials. For materials, PVC is the most popular. PVC guttering is very affordable while still being resilient. It's available in an array of colours and styles. However, guttering is also produced from metal, usually either steel, aluminium or cast iron. While these materials are often higher in price than PVC, they also last longer and are well suited to period properties as they may have a more traditionally designed aesthetic. Different moulds of guttering will also affect the flow of the water. Half round and square guttering are widespread and will suit many buildings, while deep flow or ogee guttering are well suited for use on buildings that require increased water flow. Ogee guttering also has a unique mould which has an attractive appearance. Guttering is also available in a range of shades, from traditional black or white to brown and grey. In addition, some PVC guttering is available in a cast iron effect.

Swanscombe

Swanscombe is a town in the Borough of Dartford in Kent, England. It is located east of Dartford and also north-west of Gravesend, in the civil parish of Swanscombe and Greenhithe. At the 2001 UK census, the Swanscombe electoral ward had a population of 6,418. Swanscombe was essential in the early history of concrete. The first concrete manufacturing functions near Swanscombe were opened at Northfleet by James Parker, around 1792, making "Roman concrete" from cement rock brought from the Isle of Sheppey. James Frost opened up an operate at Swanscombe in 1825, making use of chalk from Galley Hill, having actually patented a brand-new cement called British Cement. The Swanscombe plant was consequently obtained by John Bazley White & Co, which became the biggest element of Blue Circle Industries when it developed in 1900. It finally closed down in 1990. Between 1840 and 1930 it was the largest cement plant in Britain. By 1882 numerous concrete suppliers were running across the north Kent area, yet the resulting dirt contamination drove the people of Swanscombe to take legal action against the local concrete works. In spite of different technical advancements, the issue continued right into the 1950s, with telegraph lines over an inch thick in white dust. Modern cement kilns in Kent using chimneys 170 m (550 feet) in elevation are currently claimed to be the cleanest on the planet. However, the adjoining Medway towns are reported to be one of the most contaminated occupied area in the UK, and the concrete market adds to acid rain in Scandinavia.

    FAQs

    What is a gutter?

    A gutter is part of the system that takes rainwater away from a building. Every home will have some form of guttering system to stop water from dripping off the roof and into the walls. It’s important to keep your gutters clear because if water starts to seep into your home’s walls, you’re likely to get damp.

    A guttering system consists of half pipes, troughs, bends and downpipes. They’re usually cylindrical in shape but they may be square on some homes and in countries outside of the UK. Technically, the gutter is the part that you’ll see across your roof that collects rainwater. The water will then feed into a downpipe from your roof’s edge to the base of your home, where you can collect it in something like a water butt, or it will be discharged to a surface water drain or soakaway.

    In early times, gutters used to be made from lined wood or stone. Lead was often used as the liner to stop rainwater from seeping through the material, but you won’t see it used much anymore. These days, most homes have uPVC guttering as it’s a hardwearing plastic that should last a long time. But you’ll also see gutters made from aluminium, cast iron and copper, especially on period homes or those in a conservation area.

    Every home needs a guttering system to ensure that rainwater doesn’t affect the foundations of the property. It’s also important to keep the gutters clear of debris like fallen leaves, as this will cause them to overflow, potentially causing water to soak into the walls and causing damp.

    How much do gutters cost?
    How much gutters costs depends on the type of home you live in, what material you want for your guttering and whether your roofline has easy access. As a rough guide, you should expect to pay somewhere between £450-£800 for the supply and installation of new gutters. If you live in an average home and access is easy, a pair of tradespeople should be able to install your new guttering in a day. It’s only if they have to put up scaffolding to make an access tower that work may span longer than a day – and this will increase the price. The type of material you choose for your guttering will also affect the cost. Plastic, or uPVC, is the cheapest option for your gutters and it is relatively hardwearing. For an average 3-bed semi-detached house, uPVC guttering will cost around £70 without installation costs. However, go for an option like aluminium for your gutters and they’ll set you back around £750. Other options include cast iron, popular on period homes, which may cost around £620 for the same size house, or copper which would be around £850. Most people choose uPVC for their gutters because they’re the cost-effective option. They don’t have to be white – like uPVC windows, you can get guttering in a range of colours to suit your home. When people choose other guttering materials, it’s usually due to their home being in a conservation area or having a period look. People also choose other materials because they’re easier to recycle.
    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.
    What are gutters normally made from?

    In the UK, gutters are normally made from uPVC. It’s a hardy plastic that won’t rot, warp or tarnish very easily, which is why it’s so popular. It’s the same material that’s used for most homes’ windows these days; they don’t have to be the standard white as they can be made into a range of colours. Expect to pay an average of £500 for the supply and installation of uPVC guttering, and more if you require scaffolding.

    Other materials that are popular for gutters include copper, aluminium and cast iron. These are much more expensive – you might be looking at around £1500 or more for the supply and installation – but they give a more polished look and are often used on period properties or those in a conservation area. If you're considering these types of gutters, make sure you get a few quotes from different roofline companies so you can compare the different materials.

    In the past, gutters were made from wood, asbestos concrete or stone. They were often lined with lead to stop the water from seeping through. When it was discovered that asbestos was seriously harmful, it of course stopped being used. Wood was prone to rotting, even with lead lining, and stone is heavy and expensive. So when uPVC came along, it became an affordable and easy material to use for gutters so homeowners could be confident that rainwater will be kept away from the foundations of their properties. It’s important to keep gutters clear from leaves and debris, because if they become blocked, they can make water to fall against your property’s walls, causing damp.
