Alutec Classic makes the timeless look an affordable choice

Posted: Wednesday 4th March 2009

Cala Homes has used Alutec aluminium rainwater gutters from Marley Plumbing and Drainage to gives a timeless cast-iron look to a prize-winning house design.

Rowanlea, which was voted House of the Year in the Scottish Home Awards,

is one of the designs used by Cala Homes at its Briery Meadow development at Haddington, East Lothian. All of the sixty homes on the development combine modern, light-filled interiors combined with traditional exteriors in the local vernacular style. Slate roofs and stone walls, which match the local architecture, are complemented by Alutec Classic guttering and matching 72mm square down-pipes.

The Alutec Classic gutter has a traditional ogee-style profile and is manufactured from high-grade aluminium. When finished in, a special textured polyester powder coating, the result is a product that looks like cast iron but is both cheaper and lighter.

Derek Hamilton, Commercial Manager of Cala Homes commented, “Alutec Classic allows us to give the appearance of cast iron at an affordable price to meet the requirements of a sensitive planning area.”

Alutec rainwater products are manufactured from high grade aluminium which is corrosion resistant and fully recyclable. They are much lighter and cost-effective than cast iron, and a high quality powder coated finish means that they never need repainting.

The Alutec collection offers a wide range of profiles and colours to suit all types of traditional and contemporary properties.
