How Long Do Cast Iron Gutters Last?

Cast Iron gutters have been installed on properties in the UK since Victorian times, and many of those original installations are still in place now, bearing testament to the durability of this extraordinary product. Cast Iron is the most expensive guttering product that we sell, but its strength, resilience and sheer good looks makes it a very viable option for traditional style buildings.

The fact that Victorian gutter installations can still be seen regularly in the UK serves as proof that this material is very long lasting. Manufacturing techniques and protective paint coatings have advanced considerably since the 19th Century, so with the proper maintenance cast iron gutters should last at least fifty years and most probably much longer than that.
