A GRP (glass fibre reinforced moulding) system is ideal for those who desire the classic look that a Cast Iron rainwater system upholds but require a more lightweight material that is tough, durable and long lasting.Its versatility means it can be adapted for both traditional and modern properties, making it an idyllic choice for home owners.
The properties of GRP also allow mouldings to be taken of original castings to be made as a replacement whilst guttering can be formed to accommodate a particular roof line radius
On older buildings, such as listed properties or heritage sites, GRP is an ideal replacement for previously installed systems that have succumbed to the elements, maintaining the traditional aesthetic of the property. For new builds, Rainguard’s GRP systems can be that finishing touch, adding value and character to your home.
