Rain in Manchester and the North West – how big do your gutters need to be?

It’s something of a tired old joke that it ‘always rains in Manchester’. This link takes us to a Met Office page which shows things with more clarity.

You can see that in some of the areas in which we install our seamless aluminium gutters – central Lancashire, Cumbria and the Pennine areas – there is above average rainfall, but by the time you reach the south of our patch – Greater Manchester, Cheshire, Derbyshire and south and west Yorkshire – it is starting to peter out.

Nevertheless, we have in Britain as a whole over the last few years seen unprecedented downpours – long and intense periods of rain which have overwhelmed many rainwater disposal systems; and these sudden inundating deluges can strike anywhere. We have seen floods from Yorkshire to Berkshire to Somerset to Surrey and more, and railway lines washed away in sunny Devon.

Our gutters address this: Intercounty Seamless Aluminium Gutters are based on a 5” x 4” Ogee design and have approximately 2½ times the capacity of conventional domestic half-round plastic gutters. In short, our gutters are far more reliable and much less likely to be overwhelmed when subjected to heavy rain.
