The importance of gutters to a building is often overlooked despite them being the one of the biggest causes of water ingress across the UK. Poorly maintained, corroding, failing or simply aged gutters can discharge into buildings causing damage, stock loss, building unavailability or even potential health and safety risks. Ingress from the gutters is predominantly caused by joint failure but can also be caused by severe corrosion. In today’s ever-changing climate, one in which we very rarely see drizzle gutters can also be overwhelmed and surcharge during heavy storms. This is becoming a much more common occurrence.
Whatever the circumstance AB Roofing solutions are competent and experienced in identifying the correct gutter system for your property. Working with a variety of manufacturers we trained to identify and recommend the best solution for each site and client.
Some of the systems we use are detailed below:

During the bonding process the hinges are formed that give the product its unique flexibility and ability to enter the most difficult of gutter cavities and to maximise the available space. It is manufactured in 2.8 metre lengths that are easily handled so installation is both quick and easy. Coming with a 25yr guarantee you can be left with piece of mind that the gutters will no longer leak.
