Good guttering is just as important as a new roof and should be checked on a regular basis to ensure that they are clear from debris which could then block downpipes, leading to leaking going into the internal roof cavity.
Guttering is measured by a lineal metre, when problems occur with the guttering the metre length can be replaced at that section if no damage has happened to the fixtures of the gutter attachments.
There are several different styles of guttering you can choose to suit your external structure, this will be by the advice of a specialised Roofing expert.
It is worthwhile getting your whole roof checked by a professional roofing specialist when having your gutters looked at to ensure no faults from the roof surface can cause structural problems later with your gutters.
3 Commonly Used Gutter Products Are:
- COLORBOND® Guttering
- Aluminium or Zincalume
- Galvanised Steel
An oldie and a goodie, colorbond® has been tried and tested to withstand the Australian conditions, ticking all boxes for corrosion, durability, marine and tropical conditions. A powder coated steel which makes it a very popular choice and can be made to match or contrast the wall colours of your home.
Aluminium or Zincalume
Silver and perfect Zincalume is a very strong material that will weather most heavy rains conditions, it is cost effective and rust resistant.

If you are only replacing a small area of guttering and your current guttering is galvanised steel you may choice to continue with this option. Galvanised steel is an older source of guttering, hot dipped steel, not a rustproof product so will require more maintenance than other materials.
