PVC gutters are made of unplasticized polyvinyl chloride. The sections and various fittings are light, easy to fix and do not require any painting and are a very popular form of guttering.
Half round, square and ogee profile guttering and fittings are available. An ogee is a half-round adaptor used to join gutters of different profiles. Square gutters have a much greater capacity for carrying water than the half-round one and we can advice on which is best for you.
If you need to replace part of say a cast iron gutter and want to use UPVC adaptors, to connect the new PVC gutter to either half round or square cast iron guttering, you can. The point to keep in mind here is it’s important to replace any guttering with a type using a similar size channel.
Most domestic installations use 100mm (4 inch) gutter widths and 62.5mm (2½ inch) downpipes. There should be a slight slope on the guttering leading to the downpipes. A 1 in 600 slope is the ideal slope for guttering, if measured from the base of the facia boards.
UPVC guttering is a cheap and durable guttering option, for both a new system and can also be used in conjunction with other guttering materials such as iron gutters.
