seamless aluminium gutters, clonsilla dublin

Today we went to clonsilla in dublin 15 to replace pvc gutters with seamless aluminium gutters,
The reason for this was that the pvc gutters were not fitted correctly and were of a poor quality, as a result the gutters sagged under pressure of dirt or snow, and were forming ponds of rain instead of draining the rain away.
We fitted a seamless aluminium gutter using hidden hangers fixed with adonised screws to ensure a long lasting fixing.
The customer had a conservatory out the back so we had to use a platform for access to the rear gutter.

We had a detached house on the summit to do in white pvc soffit and fascia and white eavemaster supreme pvc gutters and downpipes.

leaks in pvc gutters

We had a small job today, just a replacement of black pvc gutters with black seamless aluminium gutters.
the client was having problems with leaks at the joints of the black pvc gutters, This can occur when the pvc gutters are exposed to heat from the sun and expand, or even contract due to the cold, this causes the gutter to creep from the joints and leak.
the seamless gutter solves this problem because it is made to measure in one piece.
I hope this information is useful to someone.

two housed in black pvc

my oh my, when you start off on a colour you get a run of it!
We have been doing quite a lot of black pvc and aluminium soffit, fascia and gutters these days.
We just finished another two houses in black on thursday.
The clients are very happy with the work and the guarantee we give.
the fact that we carry full insurance seems to be very important to our customers, it's probably due to the amount of claims rogue traders are claiming against home owners.
I remember i had to return to a customer to refit a gutter that was pulled off by a rogue trader, The customer told me the story, This guy knocked on the door and offered to paint her house, She said no she was going to work, When she came home from work the man was up a ladder on her house, She told him to get off her property and he duly came down the ladder: Fell the last few steps: grabbed the gutter on the porch and pulled it off.
Of course he said he had hurt his back and sued her for damages.
The moral of the story is 1. don't allow any door knockers on your property and always insist on seeing the insurance scedule of any contractor.
