Effective guttering systems are key

When it is installed and maintained properly, guttering tends to go relatively unnoticed. However, this does not mean such systems are incidental. Indeed, the significance of gutters quickly becomes apparent if and when problems arise.
Therefore, if you’re seeking guttering for a new building or need to replace the systems on an existing building, you’re no doubt after top-quality versions that work perfectly and can stand the test of time. Succeeding in finding products like this can make your life much easier in the long run.
Rain-soaked Britain
Britain’s gutters have been tested over recent months. After periods of below average rain fall earlier this year, the UK has since been soaked by successive bouts of heavy rain and the Christmas period has not escaped the deluge.
At various stages in the run-up to the festive season, parts of UK sustained localised flooding and parts of Wales were among those worst affected. The city of St Asaph was badly hit, with around 400 properties damaged by the rising water.
Climate change?
Visiting the area in the wake of the event, Welsh secretary David Jones noted that such high levels of rainfall were an unusual occurrence. However, he added that they could be part of a broader trend.
He remarked: “If you look at St Asaph you’ll see that a massive amount of flood defence work has been carried out over the years. I think that what we had on this occasion was a very exceptional occurrence. I have talked to the Environment Agency who say this is the highest flood since 1976, so it’s a very rare occurrence.
“Given the frequency that we’re experiencing this sort of event it’s got to be wondered whether in fact this is climate change manifesting itself.”
