Build cost basics: Guide to rainwater goods prices

The Build It Estimating Service’s Adrian Wild compares the upfront and lifespan costs of fitting diff erent types of guttering for your home building project

We get our fair share of wet weather in the UK. According to the Met Office, if you live in Wales, Northern Ireland or the western regions of England, you can expect up to around 4m of rainfall per year. Moisture and buildings don’t mix well, so it’s vital your house is designed to collect and channel water away properly. If rain saturates the core materials, the property could suffer mould and decay – and ultimately structural failure. Guttering is also a highly visible part of a home’s completed look, so you need to consider both function and aesthetics when making your selection.
