Alumasc Rainwater provides finishing touch for listed Suffolk building

  • 16 Nov 2018

Alumasc Heritage Cast Aluminium Rainwater was recently chosen to replace old cast iron gutters and downpipes as part of the major renovation of a listed Suffolk building.

The lime plaster and existing cast iron rainwater system at Pound Hall needed to be replaced as part of the renovation project. Alumasc’s local Area Sales Manager visited the site to assess the exact requirements for the job.

Matching Rainwater products were also installed on the coach house, which was converted into new guest accommodation, as well as a newly-built glass garden room. Significant electrical and plumbing work was carried out too, as well as exterior decorating and landscaping to add the finishing touches to the beautiful property.

New England Building Services was contracted to carry out the work, as it specialises in listed buildings and high-end domestic refurbishment. Director David Keeble selected Alumasc Heritage Cast Aluminium having previously used the range and knowing the product would be accepted by planners and conservation officers.

Heritage aluminium gutters are manufactured using modern aluminium casting techniques and are factory finished. With an extensive 16 factory applied colours available, the chosen finish was black to resemble the surface texture of cast iron.

David Keeble comments on the project: “All New England’s operatives are experienced installers of heritage quality products and are used to working on Grade I and Grade II listed properties, so the installation went smoothly, and the team found the cast aluminium much lighter and easier to handle than the cast iron they had removed from the property.”
