ADVANTAGES OF USING CAST IRON GUTTERING
Cast Iron is a remarkably durable material — many authentic installations from as early as the Victorian period still exist within the UK in, around the North of England and London in particular. When maintained accurately, Cast Iron Guttering outlives all competing products made from alternative materials.
Because Cast Iron is connected to tradition, it is used especially well on period-style properties, from Victorian terraces to one-off houses. As well as this, it is the most-used guttering material on listed buildings; a large number of planning officers refuse to accept alternative materials. Iron is sourced naturally, so it is completely recyclable — combine this with its incredibly long lifespan, and Cast Iron can be justifiably seen as a truly environmentally-friendly material.
COMPATIBILITY OF CAST IRON GUTTERING
The majority of PVC Gutter manufacturers incorporate adaptors to half round cast iron in their collection. These adaptors typically consist of a compressed rubber seal, making an impermeable joint by tightening a PVC strap, normally with a nut and bolt assembly. Also available are adaptors to Cast Iron Ogee, which attach the PVC gutter to the metal by using a nut and bolt through the gutter section, and furthermore make the joint by using silicon sealant.
