Gutter Mouldings – Securing your Homes Protection Against Water Damage

Rain water guttering is a well-designed feature to help protect you house against excessive rainfall by catching and channelling the water away from your home. Usually made from multiple connected half cylinder frameworks, these small channels collect falling water and direct it towards downpipes and eventually outward drainage systems. Gutters are very simple in design but can offer lots of protection for your home.Gutter Mouldings

By directing water away from your home, guttering acts as defence against water damaged foundations. If erected well, they are positioned just below a roofs edge allowing water to run into the funnel and so away from the walls and framework of the building. Over time, water can cause masses of erosion including making wood weak and discolouring paint – a real eye sore to the aesthetically conscious home owner.

Guttering is often seen made with PVC plastic but can be construction from a variety of materials including metals and wood. Although often known to be semi cylindrical in shape, guttering is also designed in a box shape. The shape of the guttering may compliment the building, making it blend in better with the framework of the house. Guttering systems can also come in a variety of colours including white, black and brown which can be easily matched to window and door frames – keeping it in keeping with the overall appearance of the house.

In order to direct water into down pipes, guttering systems need to be positioned with a slight downward angle towards the pipe – simply to encourage flow of water. One way that guttering can be kept in position is by using gutter mouldings. Often make using flexible yet strong aluminium, these ‘hook’ like shape gutter mouldings can support the gutter frameworks to keep it in place. Gutter mouldings can be offered in a variety of sizes depending of the channels diameter. These can then be fixed to the roof plinths of the house, keeping the guttering secure.
