    guttering what type?

    They don't seem to build houses with gutterings but we need some out back as having it roofed over. Now this metal guttering they all seem to use is quite pricey at 700 baht a metre so I suggested plastic stuff I have seen in homepro etc, both builder and wife said this is no good, no reason given. They both say metal is best, the only advantage I can see with the metal is that it's a lot deeper so will cope with a downpour better. Any advice on it? Actually, the builder can't do metal for some reason, the one before him could not do electrics and the one before that could not follow instructions!

    I bumped into a guy once doing on-site aluminium guttering.

    I back your comment. I've never seen any good quality guttering in Thailand, I believe that less than 1% of all buildings have guttering anyway.

    In my village we see those guys selling guttering every few months, I wonder how many customers per day they get.

    I would prefer to have some nice stainless steel / galvanized steel guttering but I guess it's quite expensive. You can also make PVC guttering yourself, if you cover it with something nice I guess it would be a very vailable option.

    One piece of advice is with whatever you use, first get them
    to put extra fixings (nails/screws etc ) for the fascia board, where it is secured to the roof trusses.

    If it hasn't been designed to hold the weight of the guttering full of water, it can all come down.
