Devils Pit Farm
Devils Pit Farm is a detached farmhouse and is situated in the Blackdown Hills, an area of natural beauty near Taunton.
The client, Sarah Jane Longbottom, had been experiencing problems with the existing uPVC gutter – it had begun to fail, and the joints had separated, which led to damp creeping into the building, causing damage to the paintwork.
Mrs Longbottom had attended the local Kingsbridge Show where Mike Smith of Simply Seamless Guttering (SSG) had been demonstrating the Mustang® Aluminium Seamless Gutter Machine and was impressed with the key benefits this system could offer, namely long lengths without leaks.
Mrs Longbottom requested that Mike visit her property to measure up and provide a quotation to replace the whole system, including aluminium downpipes. This was accepted, and shortly after, Mike installed the new rainwater system on-site.
Mustang® Aluminium Seamless Guttering is a unique joint-less system and is the only seamless gutter system approved by the British Board of Agrément (BBA).
It is roll formed on-site in lengths of up to 30 metres with no joints, meaning no leaks, creating a neat, maintenance-free product of the highest quality that adds extra visual appeal with the additional peace of mind a premium product has been fitted. It is manufactured from 90% recycled Aluminium and can subsequently be recycled at the end of its useful life.
Mustang® Seamless Aluminium Guttering teamed with Colonnade swaged aluminium downpipes is an ideal replacement for the existing uPVC gutters due to it being lightweight, non-corrosive and cost-effective. Made from recycled aluminium, it is durable and long-lasting and has an expected life span of more than 30 years.
The homeowner was particularly keen on the benefits of having a low-maintenance and unique joint-less system.
Mike Smith of SSG is a new Mustang® approved contractor, meaning that he has received training and his work has been inspected, by ARP, to ensure it meets the highest standard. They are happy to recommend him on future contracts knowing he will use quality ARP products.
For Mike, the ability to offer a BBA Accredited System gives his clients the peace of mind that a quality system has been installed and will last for at least 30 years with little maintenance.
