Contemporary style for fenland newbuild

This stunning new build house in Cambridgeshire features ARP’s Legion Box Gutter in fashionable slate grey with matching square downpipes to complement the natural slate roof and show off the company’s capability in powder coating to match any colour required.

Working with contractor Ley Construction Ltd of Waterbeach Cambridge, ARP took the project right the way through from samples to manufacture and supply on site, providing design help, site visits, and scheme drawings along the way. The result is a stunning rainwater solution that suits the building’s contemporary style and meets the owner’s sustainability criteria to avoid using plastic.

One of the beauties of aluminium guttering is that it can be powder coated to match exactly any colour imaginable, often to match to soffits, brick, windows, doors, and roofs. On this house in Willingham Cambridgeshire the gutters and the square ARP Colonnade downpipes was supplied in RAL7015 slate grey to complement the slate roof and match the property’s front door.

Legion is a modern, boxy profile that works well on contemporary structures. It is a high quality, pressed aluminium gutter system manufactured at ARP’s UK plant from high strength aluminium sheet. Available in a standard joggle joint profile, ARP can make bespoke Legion profiles as applicable. It is lightweight and easy to install and can last for 40years+ with minimal maintenance. Perfect for one-off and special projects, ARP Legion can be provided in radiused bends and with special fittings.

With its sturdy modern square profile and flush joint collars, ARP’s Colonnade downpipes are the perfect supplement to Legion Box Gutter, completing the modern, function style perfectly in Willingham. Made from 100% recycled and recyclable lightweight aluminium, ARP Colonnade gutters will handle the offlow from larger roof areas.

Aluminium was the perfect choice for the roofline and rainwater products on this property as it is strong, durable and non-corrosive with the ability to match the coating to other elements of the building to ensure that the system blends in with the rest of the property.
