FAQs – Cast Iron Range


130Q1. Where do I obtain Rainguard products?

Rainguard products are available direct from us here in Leeds or through most local/national builders merchants.

Q2. How available is your Cast Iron range of rainwater goods?

Half round gutters and round pipes are available from stock. Moulded gutters and square pipes will be about 14 – 21 days.

Q3. How does the Cast Iron arrive?

Cast iron guttering and downpipes will arrive in a grey primer ready for onsite painting. Any blemishes should be spot primed prior to applying a further two under coats and one top coat of a good quality exterior paint. For coastal areas consult your local paint specialist.

We can supply the cast iron in a pre painted black finish as an extra.

Q4. How long will the Cast Iron range last for before it needs re painting?

Generally speaking, depending on location, the cast iron will need repainting every 3 to 5 years.

If the pre painted finish is supplied this should last 10 years in normal conditions.

Q5. Can I use my own joint sealant?

Whilst we cannot insist that our own brand silicone is used we can advise that comprehensive testing has taken place using Yeoman Sealant to ensure the best adhesion/water tightness available.

Q6. Do you have more profiles available than those shown in your brochure?

Yes we do. We have many other profiles available. Contact our Sales Office on 0113 279 5854 with your requirements so we can check our special profile register.
