Cleaning can be done with fresh water and a soft brush, and once a year, or twice in a marine environment, we recommend checking the joint integrity and removing any collected debris.
If the original polyester powder paint finish loses its lustre after many years of service, the painted surfaces can be overpainted with a good quality metal paint.

Guttering with Exceptional Durability!
All of our aluminium guttering systems have been designed with durability in mind. Made from quality base materials with tough paints, they'll stand up to the elements better than any other guttering material. If you're looking for gutters that won't need replacing any time soon, aluminium is the ideal choice.
How Long Does Aluminium Guttering Last?
Alugutter products are manufactured from marine grade aluminium and coated with exterior grade polyester powder paints. The aluminium will never rust, rot or crack like cast iron or steel equivalents and polyester powder paint is one of the most durable decorative finishes available. Our products have a functional life expectancy of approximately 50 years, and with minimal maintenance, the colour coatings can provide a decorative finish for in excess of 25 years.
Fascia Bracket Spacing
When installing aluminium gutters, the brackets should be spaced at most 1 meter apart. However, in areas with high winds or heavy snowfall, the spacing can be reduced. We offer various types of gutter brackets, including ones that attach to the fascia board, directly to the rafter arms, and spikes that are set into brickwork.
Our unique "Snapfit" twinseal gutter jointing method makes installation simple, tidy, quick and most importantly durable! A bead of our high-performance silicone sealant (part code SU1) is applied between the foam spacers within each jointer, outlet and angle. The joints are then simply clicked together over the gutter lengths. Traditional Moulded Ogee gutter lengths and fittings are supplied with a male jointing end that slots into the next gutter section. Silicone sealant (code SU1) is applied between each joint then the joints are anchored together using nuts and bolts (code SU5).
How to Install Aluminium Guttering
Our aluminium guttering systems can be installed by any trades person. Mitre saws and skill saws with metal cutting blades are typically used to cut gutter lengths as required.

CE Marking is not a requirement for aluminium guttering and associated products. Under current regulation, there is no current harmonised European standard and as such, are not permitted to carry a CE mark.
Powder coated aluminium guttering systems have a proven track record for being extremely durable whilst requiring little maintenance. This is one of the reasons they are widely specified for high end domestic applications.
Aluminium eaves systems are also commonly seen on high rise buildings, office blocks, schools, churches and retail units as regular cleaning is often impractical due to costs and accessibility. Our systems will offer a significant saving on maintenance costs when compared to other guttering materials.
Similar to aluminium windows and other painted surfaces, periodic cleaning of our aluminium gutters should be undertaken to keep the system looking fresh and prolong the life of the paint.
In most cases, rainwater will wash away light grime build-up. To wash away pollutants or salt in coastal environments, polyester powder coated surfaces only require fresh water and a soft brush to bring the original appearance back.
Once a year, or twice in a marine environment, we recommend that the gutter system is cleaned and joint integrity is checked. Any collected gutter debris should also be removed.
Cleaning of gutter systems can often be undertaken at ground level by specialist gutter cleaning companies. Often window cleaning services will also offer this type of service.
Can Aluminium Guttering be Painted?
Following many years of service, once the original polyester powder paint finish loses its original lustre, the painted surfaces can be overpainted using a good quality metal paint.
Surfaces should be first be sanded down with a light abrasive to remove any of the old loose paint. The system can then be cleaned with a soap and water solution in preparation for the primer.
Apply a good quality metal primer as this is the basis for a long durable finish. Leave the primer to dry and then apply the paint as per manufacturer’s instructions.
Top tip: Check the weather forecast! Ideally painted surfaces will need at least 3 days to dry.
