    We have a tile roof and I saw a tile gutter that could have been used. Instead we put a concrete sidewalk all the way around our house which sloped away from the house to underground drainage lines it looks much cleaner I think and keeps the outside of the house easily clean all year round.

    PVC Guttering - installation

    Greetings. New to this so I hope that this is the appropriate place to seek assistance. I live just out of Nong Jhai city and had some renovations completed late last year. Elected for PVC guttering - problem is the builder stuffed it up big time. The crux of the problem is where I have two roof slopes meeting and the gutering was installed without sealant on the inside where it should be. Idiots put sealant externally where each sectin of guttering unites. Significant leakage and not wet season yet. Very hard to get to and likely needs total removal. I'm seeking advice on sourcing a knowledgable plumber. I'm too old to be clambering around roof tops. HELP please.

    In any case, if you want to replace get in touch with your local Windsor distributor. A good product and good installers.

    With the build of my shed, the BIL bought a large roll of metal sheeting, same length as the whole shed, he rolled it length wise? (not an easy job with20 meters) to halve an "o" shape ( sorry, don't know any other way to explain it) and fixed it the same way they fix the "official"guttering to a house. Very cheap and because it is one length, no leaks! One end of the gutter is closed, the other one open to run into the ditch in front of the shed.

    It's a fairly big gutter, but with the amount of rainwater sometimes falling down, never ever overflows.

    I wouldn't do the same install on a multi million baht house, but for the shed or just a house in the sticks, excellent!
    If everything seems under control, you're not going fast enough.

    Sorry, can't edit the post. Part of the shed is now being converted to temp living quarters, when I'm in there I will post the pics. It doesn't look bad at all and cheap as!

    Other thing, in Australia I know they have these guys that have a roll of metal in a truck and a "forming machine" and they just roll out the needed length. They make it on site. Have never seen it here

    What's with the brazing/soldering? We do galvanised in NZ with rivets and silicone to seal joins, no leaks. 4 rivets and a bead of silicone, perhaps 20-30c/join...even with 2.4m lengths thats only about 3 baht/m. Has to be done in situ with no rain though. Anyone who has tried & failed to glue metal joins hasnt scraped out the old crap and got it 100% dry
    I see plenty of poor paint jobs on galv where it hasnt been primed, best to paint 2 coats on the ground then touch up and final coat in the air.
    Our galv is .55mm thick and some lasts decades...brackets are thicker and replacing into old brackets saves a lot of time, if the same profile or shape can be found. Trade price is about 220 baht/m 5" gutter only fyi.
    PVC deteriorates badly in sunlight, but main problem is expansion/contraction (which is why they are ok for downpipes). It tends to crap out at the joins a lot worse than metal so put extra brackets either side of the join, dont just even space them.
    Norm, When repairing PVC I tend to cut out the joiner (use a grinder for older plastic, saws can cause splitting when cutting). You could slide the pieces along (pvc slides on its brackets, remember expansion) and then just put 1 insert per side. Glue is a MCS solvent, silicone dosnt work.
