With a low cost and easy installation process, plastic guttering is one of the most popular gutter types available.
Although there are several styles, the best gutter shapes are called half round and deep flow. Deep Flow guttering is the most common option due to its extra water capacity which helps drain water faster away from the roof. The deep flow gutter shape also helps maintain a great flow rate, which keeps the water moving and in turn the gutters cleaner. Half round gutters are chosen for their low cost point and shallow profile which makes them perfect for DIY projects, for example as roof gutters or shed gutters.
