High Corrosion Resistance
Aluminium generates a protective oxide coating naturally which give aluminium gutters their extensive life span. With the oxide coating, if the surface gets damaged, the aluminium simply oxidises again to protect itself. With the addition of a polyester powder coating the aluminium guttering can be finished to many different styles and designs that are attractive, still durable and almost maintenance free. In comparison to steel, where galvanising only offers limited protections, and cast iron which requires regular painting and PVC which often fades in colour. Aluminium comes out on top.
