Cast-a-like is a special powder-coating finish that is available on all Stomguard's rainwater goods. It is intended, as the name suggests, to give aluminium the appearance and feel of cast iron. The disadvantages of cast iron are its weight and its susceptibility to rust. Until recently, its dimpled appearance was unique. However, the cast-a-like finish that is now available combines the appearance of cast iron with the durability of aluminium. The result is a product that has a traditional look and feel, is easy to fit and has a long life span.
The cast-a-like finish is widely being considered as not only an acceptable alternative but also a superior replacement to cast iron. However, many projects on listed buildings are restricted to the use of traditional products.
In addition to the range of extruded aluminium guttering available, Stomguard can also supply a range of cast aluminium gutters, if this is specified. Contact Stormguard's Sales Team for more information. Stormguard's products are available in a wide range of RAL colours. The cast-a-like finish is available on all products and in all colours.
