Traditionally speaking, guttering systems were made of heavy materials such as cast iron. Cast iron is a very strong, durable material, but it is also very heavy, difficult to install and needs regular maintenance. Because of this, many people these days opt for plastic guttering systems instead, which can offer all the advantages and none of the disadvantages of other types of guttering.
One of the major issues many people have with their guttering system is keeping it maintained. No matter what type of guttering you have, you will always have to clean it out regularly to make sure that debris such as dead leaves or moss are not blocking it. If your guttering is made from a substance such as cast-iron, you will also have the issue of keeping it rust-proof. If rust occurs, it can quickly spread and severely damage the rest of the guttering as well as your house, so protective paint must be applied regularly to keep it safe.
With plastic guttering, you do not need to worry about this. Plastic will not rust and it is not prone to any type of degradation at all. On top of this major advantage, plastic guttering is also a lot cheaper than its alternatives and it is far easier to install, due to being a lightweight material. These days, plastic is also stronger and more durable than ever, so it can handle whatever the weather may throw at it.
Another advantage you can get from plastic guttering is that it is resistant to extremes of heat. This is important if your property is damaged by a fire, but also if you live in a warm climate.
