Fitting 6ft (1830mm) Victorian Ogee gutters
Before you begin fitting your cast iron Victorian Ogee gutters, you should make an assessment of the fascias you’re going to be working with – since they will need to be in good condition to support the weight of cast iron guttering.
As long as you’re happy with the condition of your fascias, you should mount your first bracket according to manufacturer’s guidelines – usually 150mm from where the end stop will finish your first length of gutter.
From your first bracket, you should measure and mark out further brackets according to the fall required. When your brackets are in place, you’ll be able to lift your guttering lengths into position.
To get the perfect fit, your Victorian Ogee gutters can be cut to the size required – but remember that cutting cast iron requires a circular disc cutter – or a tungsten tipped saw. You’ll also need to ensure you’re wearing the appropriate PPE.
Joining gutters and accessories
When you need to join a connector or end cap to your Victorian Ogee guttering, you can do so quickly and easily. Ensuring your connection point is clear of any burrs or swarf from cutting – you can simply apply a silicone sealant and slide the parts together. Since cast iron does not expand or contract, there’s no need for any expansion room. When your joint is in place, you can secure it using the bolt holes on the bottom of the part.
