Guttering & Downpipes

 

Guttering

Before you engage the services of a guttering contractor, ensure you call Residential Roofing Solutions. We are professional roof plumbers, not just unqualified handymen or guttering installers. Roof plumbers design and install guttering and install stormwater drainage systems. 

Guttering is an important component of your roof and one that needs to be carefully considered. There are a variety of materials that are suitable, such as plain zinc aluminum alloys (Zincalume) or zinc aluminum with colour applied (Colorbond).

Gutter, downpipes and general rainwater products are very important assets on any home where a large volume of water falls on the roof area. Competently fitted gutter and rainwater fixtures can protect the building and collect and channel the excess water. Leaking or badly fitted gutters can be the cause of much more costly repairs to your home such as rotten timber fascia, eave damage, water damage to gardens and outdoor areas, drainage problems and termite infestation.

We are ready to fit an extensive choice of gutter styles, from the more traditional colonial styles to todays modern contemporary design. Click on the links below to download brochures from our major suppliers for more information:

Gutter Profiles Choices

Gutter, downpipes and general rainwater products are very important assets on any home as a large volume of water falls on all roof areas. There are a wide range of profile and colours available to suite anyone's creative requirements. Listed below are the most commonly used in both the residential and commercial industries.

Square-line gutter is a square front gutter that is slotted and needs to be folded around corners, eliminating the use of external angles and fixed with concealed brackets. Ideal for garages and carports hiding the end or roof sheets, and provides a stylish accessory to any home or building


Slotted Emline or Big M gutter is available for areas of very high rainfall. It has excellent water catching capabilities and includes slots in the gutter to allow water to overflow freely.


Quad gutter is a very adaptable style of guttering. It blends perfectly with older style colonial and cottage style homes. It is the most common gutter found on Queenslander style homes and it can also be used extensively in new home construction.


Traditional high front quad gutter is used on colonial style houses and is very popular on new home construction. It is a slotted gutter with overflow holes and a 115mm diameter.


OG Gutter is an attractive gutter which is often seen on Victorian, federation and older style buildings.


Half Round is a European style gutter with a semicircular design that is supported by external brackets. With a 150mm diameter it has a greater water capacity and the speed of the water travel is greater than a conventional gutter allowing to clear debris and silt. The great advantage of having this cylindrical design is that it has a self cleaning feature.


Downpipes

There are a wide range of downpipes for a variety of applications. Square, rectangular and round downpipes are available to suit any style of home, building or factory. Sizes available range to suit any requirements from small drainage up to large factory applications.

Rain heads

Rainheads are an essential design element for buildings where internal box or trough gutters are used. A rainhead or sump is a container located between the gutter and downpipe that aids the flow of water away from the roof. It acts as an external overflow point to minimise water surges into the stormwater system and aid the flow of water down the downpipe. The outside positioning of rainheads means that they minimise the risk of water overflow inside a building. Furthermore, the addition of an overflow provision provides even greater protection against water overflow in extreme conditions.
