Seamless guttering was introduced into the UK in the early 1970s. The 1990s saw rapid growth in the use of seamless guttering in Europe. Since the 1990s seamless guttering has grown in the UK linked with the rapid growth in low maintenance roofline products. From windows, doors, flat roofs to fascia and soffit, all maintenance free. However, a plastic gutter remains a problem. Due to joint leaks, creaks and fading. Using seamless gutters provides that last link to a maintenance free lifestyle and eliminates the problems associated with plastic.
