I would be interested in your experiences of roof guttering. Aluminium? steel?
Can you buy plastic guttering in Thailand? What about durability and pricing?
Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

Come on people......guttering. Not a sexy topic I appreciate, but necessery none the less
Look out of your windows....that long silvery, plasticy, water-catchy thing, underneath the last tiles on your roof? If you've not got them....your piles will sink over the next........200 years :shock: Are you sitting comfortably? Anyone with a brain will be mildly amused at this point. They may even think of Ealing? Guttering anyone?......Carry-on

I just have some experience about farang style gutter. And i have to say that metal or steel gutter is much more better than PVC because of the sun. PVC will lost his quality after sometime.

Here Dozer also set a thread for it:

They seem to in general have two types of guttering, the standard metal, which I had installed here, fairly rust proof galvanized material. It was inexpensive, they came out and measured and installed it around the entire house including downspouts for 11k, based on price per linear meter.

The other type is galvanized. It is 5 times as expensive (but of course would be the best quality).

The standard galavinsed guttering on my roof cost ฿200 per meter, installed. It won't keep its shine for long, and even though galvanised, could show surface rust after a few years. I'm not worried about that - will paint it.

Stainless steel is also available at about twice the price. HomePro and HomeMart offer ranges of ABS and fibreglass gutters and down pipes. Expensive, but maintenance-free, and the square-section doanpipes look neat.
