You have several options when it comes to choosing a material for your gutters in Cape Town. Copper, zinc, aluminum and steel are all solid choices for gutters on a home or commercial building but aluminum gutters are often cited as being the best choice. Ideal for seamless gutter systems, aluminum gutters installed by Aluspan Gutters in Cape Town have a number of benefits that a homeowner or building superintendent should take into consideration when planning the installation of a gutter system. Aluminum gutters make up nearly 80% of all gutters installed. Aluminium gutters are able to hold more water than traditional gutters and able to resist rust, aluminum gutters are an inexpensive option for running water away from your roof and are known for being very durable.

Aluminium Gutters


  Aluminum gutters are lightweight and much easier to install than steel gutters and other materials that require joint soldering. Aluminum gutters ensure rust won’t be a problem and you get an effective seamless gutter system that will last. Steel is more durable but when leaves and other debris cause a downspout to clog this causes puddles which lead to rust. Aluminum doesn’t have this problem and gutters installed using aluminum usually last much longer than other systems.

OGEE GUTTERS

Ogee Gutter is a shaped gutter profile adding a touch of design and aesthetic to your roof line. Ogee guttering has a double curved s profile and comes with a retaining clip pre-fitted for quick and easy installation. Due to its design and profile, it benefits from a high capacity, great for dealing with the climate in the Cape.

 

BOX GUTTERS

Box gutters are essentially placed between parallel surfaces, as in a valley between parallel roofs or at the junction of a roof and a parapet wall. They should not be confused with so-called valley gutters or valley flashings which occur at the non-parallel intersection of roof surfaces, typically at right angled internal corners of pitched roofs. Provision is made in the design of the gutter to have a rain flow to the outlet with a maximum slope of 1:200 and a minimum of 1:400.
