A property renovation in Ireland has used Guttercrest aluminium rainwater system to provide an authentic looking addition to the stone-built property.
The property has been fitted with Guttercrest’s aluminium rainwater hoppers and traditional cast aluminium downpipes as a decorative addition to the exterior. The feature corner hoppers were designed in house by the technical department after they were tasked with creating a feature rainwater collection system for the front elevation of the building. The hoppers which complement the gables on the front elevation, also act as a gutter, collecting the rainwater directly from the roof edge. The hopper design features dentil blocks and resembles the moulded ogee shape gutter, popular on period properties. Complimentary 75 mm traditional cast round aluminium downpipes with a cast collar have been used with the hoppers to complete the rainwater disposal system and provide an authentic looking heritage feature on the property. They were pressed and fabricated from aluminium at Guttercrest’s Shropshire headquarters, with 65,000 sq ft of space dedicated to manufacturing the best quality aluminium rainwater products in the country.
