Developers have to think carefully about the practicalities of design on any new homes that they build. No matter whether they are converting an existing building into flats or working on new build homes, getting the drainage right is hugely important.

It’s easy to get carried away with the aesthetics, but a good property doesn’t just need to look great, it has to be practical too. If rainwater systems aren’t properly thought through or have been designed with inferior guttering, then that’s when problems start. Problems that can cause endless headaches and drain finances longer term.

Flat roofs especially present developers with a challenge. If rainwater doesn’t drain it gathers in pools on the roof. In the winter this water can freeze and become heavy, putting pressure on the structure, which can go on to do real harm and damage if left unchecked.

It’s vitally important to work with providers who can supply a huge range of different drainage systems no matter what is required. Cast iron or aluminium, in a range of different colours. These are systems that look fantastic and do the job that they are designed to do. They come in some many different styles, so there’s bound to be something to suit any type of property. This is drainage that looks the part and helps to ensure that all excess water drains away without any problem. Giving new owners peace of mind that their property is well designed and won’t cause them expensive problems further down the line.
