How Much Does Guttering Cost?

Determining how much guttering costs is difficult as it is dependent on a wide range of factors such as the quality of the materials used, the type of gutter and whether it is uPVC or cast iron metal, and the range (styles) you wish to buy as some drains products are premium brands and there is a wide range with different prices to choose from. The quantity you will use is another a factor as some property require less such as a terraced property while others such as detached properties require much more. Therefore building type is also a factor to consider.

Plastic on average is the cheapest form and will require less repairs due to its durability. Downpipe sizes normally comes in 4m lengths with a diameter of 68-160mm. The different colours do not usually affect prices.

A whole new install will also require other building materials, accessories and fixings such as fascias, soffits and a bargeboard too which need to be factored into the costing and this without factoring in delivery costs.

Based on this information and assuming you are buying only the materials, you will look to spend approximately £500 before any labour costs and this usually includes delivery.

How Much Does It Cost To Replace Guttering?

How much it costs to replace your drains system is also dependent on a wide range of factors such as whether small repairs are required or you are replacing the whole thing on your property. On average the sort of money you will look to spend is approximately between £400 to £800 to replace your existing system and fixings. The material your drainage system is made from and range will also influence this price.

How Do You Install Guttering?

Any UPVC guttering range is very easy to install with only standard hand tools necessary. It is fixed to the fascia board using the fascia board brackets and sits close just above the soffit board and collects runoff diverting it to the underground system. Only a basic sort of screws or nails, sealants or adhesives, and fixings will be the only products necessary to complete the job in good time and results.

How Do You Clean Guttering?

One way to clean your gutters is to do it yourself or you can hire professionals who use a wide range of specialist technology designed to suck the debris out quickly.

If you choose to do this yourself, you will most likely require a ladder, some clothing that you don't mind getting dirty, gloves and someone to help you hold the ladder at the base.

Climb the ladder with someone holding it firmly at the base and once at the top, start working along the drainage system cleaning the debris content out the area inside. This will require you to frequently climb down to move the ladder along as you work your way along the gutter.

To prevent blockages reoccurring in future, they will need to be well maintained and it may be a good idea to install leaf guards, or hedgehog brushes (pictured below) to reduce the maintenance need.

How Do You Unclip Plastic Guttering?

To unclip your plastic gutter from your roof, simply pull the clip that is hooked into the gutter over and out.

As it is made from plastic, it will have some flexibility allowing you to do this and shouldn't break. Unhook all the gutter clips and then roll the gutter piece away from you and it should begin to slide out. Repeat this for the remaining pieces.

If you happen to break any of the gutter clips, replacing them is simple too as you simply unscrew the broken clip piece and screw in a new one in its place.

Nowadays, however, uPVC guttering systems are the most common type found on roofs because of their simplicity of installation, long life, low maintenance, and low cost. There are a wide range of systems now available to choose from.
