Conservatory gutters are prone to problems such as sagging, broken/snapped gutter brackets, poor alignment and leaking joints.
Unlike the more substantial fascia brackets found on your house, conservatory gutter brackets are usually flimsey and made from poor quality plastics that become brittle over time. Conservatory gutters are usually ogee in profile and generally have a bigger capacity than standard house gutters meaning it can hold more water, debris, ice and snow! This added weight combined with flimsey gutter brackets cause the brackets to snap, bend and twist.
Snow an ice can casue substational damage to your conservatory gutters too, as snow and ice slide down the roof it snaps the brackets of the metal runner they are connected too.
Unlike house gutters, conservatory brackets are secured to a metal channel, a rail that runs around the edge of the conervatory. The brackets either clip or twist and lock into the channel. Unfortuantly there are many different types of conservatory brackets with many suppliers using there own versions. That said, the right professional should be able to match your brackets or find alternatives. In some cases, we have even had new conservastory brackets 3D printed as the supplier is no longer trading.
Sagging gutters is usually due to the gutter brackets not being distributed evenly, not enough gutter brackets to support the gutter, snapped or missing gutter brackets or a combination of each.
