Gutter Replacement Importance
Gutter Replacement is very important and not something that should be pushed off to the following year, your gutters are in place to protect the foundations of your home and prevent excessive dampness from building up near your exterior walls causing penetrating dampness and mould issues internally. So, we are here to discuss just how much Gutter replacement cost in Perth and also the different materials that can be used in a Perth Gutter Replacement, which is the best investment.

Types of guttering
There are many types of guttering available, from very inexpensive to very expensive. The most popular types of guttering are:
- Plastic (PVC) guttering is Inexpensive and can be clipped together but is also not very aesthetically pleasing.
- Colorbond guttering is generally the popular choice and is relatively inexpensive, with plenty of colour choices to match your home’s style.
- Galvanised steel guttering is sometimes used, and expensive, however, can be a good option in oceanic areas.
- Zincalume is another option and obviously goes with a Zincalume roofing style
Some other types of guttering are more expensive. These include stainless steel and copper guttering. Both are expensive and must be installed by professionals because they have to be welded.
A homeowner doing a DIY is likely to choose a PVC guttering system because the Gutter Replacement Cost for PVC combined with the ease of installation makes it more appealing, however, if you have a little extra in your Perth Roof Replacement Cost budget then hiring a professional from Powerdrive Roofing to install Colorbond Gutters is a much better option. Colorbond Gutter Costs a little bit extra, but it definitely outlasts the PVC, and the colour will hold up for many years.
There is also a large number of gutter profiles to choose from in the Colorbond range, this will slightly affect your Gutter replacement cost:
- Half-round guttering
- Quad guttering
- ‘D’ guttering is a popular profile
- Fascia guttering has a high front
- OG (old gothic) guttering is a popular style that has a narrow profile and is popular in modern homes
- Smooth back guttering has a smooth profile
When it comes to choosing your roof gutter system, it is not just a matter of how much your Gutter replacement Perth cost, or what profile of guttering should we choose, there are many factors that determine what guttering system is right for your home or business. Most importantly is gutter capacity, exactly how much water can each profile hold and what is the total of water that will be coming off each face into that gutter, also how many downpipes are required in that area to cope with the capacity of potential water in that area. 7500-8000mm2 is a standard capacity for most profiles of guttering, however, if you live in an area that gets more dense or continuous rains it would make sense to choose a guttering system with a higher capacity, they may bring up the overall Perth Gutter Cost, but it will heavily reduce the chance of future problems.
Why Replace the Gutters
