Self Builders

Aluminium rainwater goods tick all the boxes for self-builders looking to take a sustainable approach to building their own home.

Our Self-builders, Mr & Mrs Healey, had plans to build their own home; they had set their sights on a contemporary style five-bedroomed detached house. Once they had appointed a builder, it was full steam ahead.

Mr & Mrs Healey first met with Nigel Hancock, Account Manager of ARP, whilst attending Grand Designs Live. The clients were keen to use a local company and discussed their self-build project with Nigel. At this stage, they only had plans.

After discussions, Nigel established the products that were required and ARP submitted samples.

Unfortunately, planning consent was not granted, and the Healeys could not proceed with their dream project until two years later.

Once planning consent had been granted, Mr Healey contacted ARP and requested a site visit. Nigel duly accommodated and then submitted a quote for the supply of Legacy Moulded Ogee Aluminium Gutters and Colonnade cast collared square downpipes and accessories.

ARP are a leading manufacturer of metal roofline and rainwater products in the UK. Because the clients required a local installer, Nigel was able to recommend a local company – Eavestec and introduced them to the clients. Due to being local, Nigel’s diligence and swift service, ARP secured the order, and Eavestec completed the installation.

Aluminium products are ideal for all sorts of properties, old and new. Our Legacy cast aluminium guttering range mimics the vintage look but has all the characteristics of a contemporary material.

Aluminium rainwater products offer a lightweight and low-maintenance system made from recycled aluminium, which is environmentally friendly.
