Victorian cottage gives rainwater system a 2019 update

Victorian cottage gives rainwater system a 2019 update

A home extension has been given some stylish finishing touches with aluminium rainwater products from Guttercrest.

The Victorian cottage features aluminium Moulded Ogee guttering paired with Georgian Cast Square Downpipes and a decorative hopper head with personalised date plate.

The rainwater products fit perfectly with both the original cottage frontage dating back to 1869 and the newly built extension.

Inspiration for the design of the 2019 personalised hopper came from carved stonework inlaid into the brickwork of the original house with the date of its build 1869.

Technical designers at Guttercrest presented several design options for the personalised hopper, including a modern design and the chosen design which pays tribute to the roots of the gothic Victoriana design.

The 75mm x 75mm cast square aluminium downpipes with authentic looking collars are inspired by 19th century cast iron equivalent. Guttercrest’s heritage range is a perfect look for listed, period or new properties to give a true ‘old’ look with all the benefits of a modern aluminium rainwater system. Aluminium is easy to install, low maintenance and lightweight yet very robust.

The homeowners chose the 125 x 100mm Moulded Ogee guttering, sometimes known as Type 46, which is also inspired by 19th century cast iron gutters for the full authentic look on their new extension.

The complete set of rainwater goods are finished in a white polyester powder coating (BS10A01), providing an attractive contrast to the wheat coloured brick.
