    DB, they are usually fitted to the fascia board, so if you have a nice strong one, no problem

    nothing to do with the type of tiles

    Shaggersback--How is the pvc guttering holding up. I have heard that even uv protected doesn't work well in Thailand. I have to add some to my house and would prefer pvc, so would like to hear your experience. Is that Guy Hall who did yours still in business?
    Thanks

    I don't get why they put so much drop on the guttering. My guy did about 2 inches drop over 5 metres or so and looks terrible. tried to talk him out of it but he was adamant it needed it for the water to flow down to the downpipe but I don't reckon it needs so much drop. Looks like a 2 year old put it up. Am I wrong? It is a pretty big roof and is the 5 inch galv stuff

    In Australia where every house has to mbe guttered, we mainly use 'Colour bond' metal. Plastic looks and is considered a cheap alternative.

    Perhaps but it is only in the last 10 years or so they have them able to withstand our winters. The new stuff is a flexible poly-vinyl compound that remains flexible to 40 below C so they don't crack in the winter. I think the UV protection has only been around for 10 years or so as well.

    But then again us colonials are always a few steps behind. After all we couldn't give a flying fukc about cricket, soccer or that lawn bowling crap!
    Of course, thats being French dominated is'nt it !

    But where are the down pipes ? You know you could not get away with this in Australia, the council would not issue your completion permit. I have had this problem in Queensland ( where it pisses down in wet season ) council demanded more down pipes.

    The Alum. is soldered together using some kind of a liquid. A guy next door had it installed and I saw the man brush the liquid on and waited about a minute. I would guess it's some kind of chemical that melts the two pieces together.
    You can buy PVC guttering, but it's expensive and the place I checked didn't have all the fittings for the down spout or the s fittings to connect it with. That would probably be the problem. Finding a comany that had everything you need to make it look nice. It came in cream and dark brown.

    that is about right, 5cm over 5m

    if less, you will get too little flow, then mud build up, then the gutter can get very heavy and start to slump and fall on your head

    I finally got a guy come and give me a price for pvc guttering in Udon Thani, I thought he was joking when he gave me the price.Told the dork to go and find a more receptive buyer. The price quoted was at least 150% more expensive than back in Adelaide South Australia where I live part of the year.

    yep, those PVC and other gutter salesmen are selling imported goods, so they are well over-priced

    go for the galvanised stuff; they have at least two qualities so get the best, it is still not too expensive

    Please tell me who did yours and where in Issan you're located. A lady next door had a single run of guttering, about 3 meters long and it cost her 1,500 baht. I want to get my house done, but not at that price. Thanks

    Would it be a simple task to connect drains to a tank, but also disperse when full?

    Would a tank like this need to be underground or not?

    495 baht a meter for downpipe and gutter, if it has 15 year warranty and they will be in business, makes sense, if not it really doesn't!

    I've not priced it up yet, but will do nearer the time that they're ready to do the roof (3 or 4 years maybe...)
