Upgrading your rain gutters during lockdown

Whether you’re working from the safety of your home or you’ve been furloughed due to COVID-19, we can bet you’re struggling to find meaningful ways to make use of the extra time. Well, now is the perfect opportunity to show the exterior of your home some much-needed TLC, and where better to start than with the guttering?

Rain gutters are vital to home improvements for projects in areas that are prone to wet weather (which, let’s be honest, we are no stranger to here in the North West!). Whilst they last for several decades, they can sometimes become worn-out due to age and lack of maintenance – calling for replacement guttering and fittings. But aside from replacing old, leaking gutters, they can also be used to:

Keep your home free-from damp

The gutter system is an essential addition to your property. It captures and redirects the rainwater into downspouts/downpipes, which then carry water away from your home. Investing in a good quality gutter system and fascias is a fantastic way to protect your home from condensation and dampness. It will help to control the amount of rainwater that gets into the structure, limiting the damage caused by heavy downpours.

Transform the look of your home on the outside

If you’ve been meaning to update the exterior of your home for quite some time – with you spending more time at home and trying to keep yourself busy – now is your chance. Although gutter systems are a necessity for homes, they can also help to transform the look of your property too, giving it a more refined look. And, the good news is that we have an extensive range of guttering styles and materials to choose from within our online store – in stock and ready to be delivered. So, you needn’t worry about finding gutter supplies that compliment your property (i.e. the size, location, age, building materials).

Add curb appeal

Adding gutters to your home will not only protect it against rainwater, mould and mildew but will help to improve its curb appeal – not to mention increase the market value of your property, should you ever decide to sell up and move.

As long as your gutter system is the appropriate size for your home, properly installed and provides adequate water drainage, it will add value to your home and increase its curb appeal. It will also give potential buyers peace of mind that they have one less thing to worry about should the sale go through.

Got a question about our rain gutters and downpipe systems? Feel free to get in touch with us on 01254 382 000 or send an email to We will do everything we can to assist you in finding the best products for your home.

Alternatively, if there’s nothing wrong with your guttering and you’re happy with the way it looks, you could always clean it – removing any leaves and debris to avoid clogging and leakages. That’s sure to keep you busy during lockdown.
