Rainclear Systems has been providing customers with high quality Metal Guttering for over a decade now. At the same time the friendly, knowledgeable team have been offering advice, free quotations and a ‘take off’ service to its customers.
But what is a ‘take off’ service and how does it take the guess-work out of buying your guttering?
A ‘take off’ refers to:
- creating a complete list of the rainwater system components illustrated on the architect’s drawings
- or, if not already specified:
- working out a ‘flow calculation’ based on the roof area, pitch and number of ‘drops’ (number of suitable locations for downpipes – based on the house design and sub-surface drainage plan) (read more at bit.ly/flowcalc)
- and recommending the required size of the guttering/downpipes for efficient management of the rainwater to effectively protect your property and foundations.
So for Rainclear to undertake a ‘take-off’ you simply need to send your architect drawings and select the metal and profile you prefer from the huge range of Cast Iron, Cast Aluminium, Modern Aluminium or contemporary Galvanised Steel or Copper available on the website www.rainclear.co.uk.
The expert team at Rainclear perform the take-offs themselves in-house, printing off your emailed plans on their own plotter, so you know you can discuss your project with somebody who has seen and shares your vision.
They can then send you a quotation based on the information you have supplied and the material and gutter profile you have selected.
‘Drops’ are the number of downpipes illustrated on architects plans – to effectively divert rainfall away from the building into drains and water butts
