Gutters are an essential part of every home, office, or building. They are there to divert rainwater away from the roof and foundations of a structure to help prevent both serious and mild structural damage from occurring. While plastic guttering remains relatively popular, they are nowhere near as durable as lead or aluminum guttering.

At AJ Scutchings & Son, our guttering specialists have decades of experience in sourcing, installing, repairing, and maintaining high-quality lead and aluminum guttering. From homes to listed buildings, we have the knowledge and talent to achieve an outstanding finish, every time.

Lead Roof

Dripping guttering, worn lead roofs, damp patches, they can all be miss-diagnosed as a leaking roof, whereas after our thorough investigation we often see that it is the finishing touches or abutments which are the problem; for example the finishing around chimneys, dormer windows or lead flashing details.

Here at AJ Scutchings and Son we have over thirty-five years of experience within the classical rainwater and lead roofing industry, insuring that you receive quality materials and up to date construction methods.
