Deep Gutters – Deep style gutters are designed specifically for areas in which the levels of rainfall which is usually higher than average. Deep style gutters are very similar to half-round gutters but simply with a deeper channel, meaning more water can be transferred. These deep gutters are very useful on refurbishment projects, domestic buildings in areas of high rainfall and buildings with large roof areas.

Box gutters are usually better suited to particular projects that already incorporate angular features such as contemporary apartment blocks and outbuildings. They can be used in areas of high rainfall or water runoff without any issues.
