Frequently Asked Questions
Do Aluminium Gutter Supplies install gutters?
No. We supply to all professional gutter installers and DIY installers but do not have our own installers. If you want a professional installer to use our product just tell the gutter installer quoting your job to use Colortuff Aluminium gutters or you can call one of our preferred installers.
How does the Colortuff aluminium guarantee compare with the Colorbond guarantee?
Colortuff aluminium products carry a 25yr guarantee while Colorbond has a 12yr site-limited guarantee. That’s more than double the peace of mind.
Another person told me that aluminium gutters are too expensive. Do they cost more than Colorbond gutters?
Aluminium gutters are a premium product and do cost more than steel based gutters but people are always surprised at the small amount extra they have to pay to get Colortuff Aluminium gutters on their home.
Do all professional gutter installers have experience with installing Colortuff Aluminium Gutters?
The process used to install Colortuff Aluminium Gutters is exactly the same as the process used to install Colorbond gutters so even if your installer has no experience with aluminium gutters he will have no problems at all using our product.
Do Colortuff Aluminium Gutters come pre-painted in different colours?
Colortuff Aluminium Gutters come with the most popular Colorbond gutter colours baked onto the gutter. You can see these colours on the “Product List” page.
Are there other types of aluminium gutters and how do they compare to Colortuff aluminium?
Colortuff aluminium gutter is the only gutter made from marine grade 0.7mm thick high strength primary aluminium giving it the strength of steel with the durability of aluminium. It is also the only continuous aluminium gutter available with overflow slots.
Can aluminium gutters react with my existing metal fascias and down pipes?
No. Aluminium gutters will not react with your existing metal fascia or down pipes because aluminium is next door to zincalume on the galvanic reaction scale. This means that Colortuff Aluminium can be in contact with your existing fascia and down pipes without causing corrosion.
As my gutters wear out they always start leaking from the point where the two lengths of gutter join. Have the manufacturers of aluminium gutters solved this problem?
Yes. Colortuff aluminium gutters are rolled on site to suit the dimensions of your roof and therefore have hardly any joins.
I am going to replace the gutters myself but I’m unsure how to manufacture a gutter corner. Can you help me with this?
We supply pressed aluminium strip mitres which are placed over the external and internal corners. These mitres make the job far easier for the DIY handyman. You can see these mitres on the Product List page.
My colorbond gutters are showing signs of rust at the corners and on the joins. Will aluminium gutters last longer than Colorbond gutters?
Yes. Colortuff aluminium gutters will not only last much longer than steel based gutters in non-coastal suburbs but will also perform significantly better in extreme coastal environments.
Do you make box gutters and other gutter profiles?
No. We only manufacture the profile of gutter shown on our Products List page.
