Zinc, Copper & Stainless Steel Rainwater Systems.

Some of the most traditional and popular metals in the world are also perfect for rainwater systems. Copper, Zinc and Stainless steel all offer unique advantages and outstanding aesthetic value to your home.

  • Copper rainwater systems add that timeless look to a home, whilst boasting cost-efficiency, environmental-friendliness and a pleasing patina that develops over years.
  • Zinc rainwater systems are stylish on lighter brickwork, weathering over time into interesting shades of grey. Zinc also offers a paint free finish and is easy to install thanks to its lightweight properties.
  • Stainless steel rainwater systems are contemporary solutions that offer a pleasing metallic finish and lasting durability for customers who need hardwearing rainwater materials. Stainless steel doesn’t rust, and looks great against darker brickwork.

At Rainguard we not only supply high quality products but also offer an installation service to fit a copper, zinc and stainless steel rainwater system that includes guttering, downpipes and hoppers, for your property. We use our years of expertise and product knowledge to ensure the highest quality in both product and service.
