Is My Cast Iron Gutter Safe?

Cast iron gutters have been used in the UK since the Victorian era, and some of these gutters still stand today, proving their resilience years after installation and strength over time.

Although sturdy and strong, cast iron gutters, if left untreated and unmaintained, can be unsafe in certain situations.

After being left untreated for a number of years, cast iron gutters can rust and rot, leading to brackets and supports becoming brittle and frail.

This in turn can result in downpipes coming free from the wall. This could result in injury, or even death should these land on or strike anyone.

It is incredibly important to keep your cast iron gutters well maintained and checked by a professional to reduce the risk of this being the case.
