West Wittering

Inside Out Lifestyle is a building company specialising in making the best of your home and customising your living space.

A project they recently worked on in West Wittering was a property in need of a major refurbishment both inside and out.

The brief was to create a contemporary style throughout the property.

When it came to the external roofline and rainwater products, Ian from Inside Out Lifestyle enlisted the help of metal guttering manufacturer ARP.

David Capel, Account Manager for ARP, visited the site to establish the requirements for aluminium guttering, downpipes, fascia and soffits.

Once the style of the items was ascertained, ARP’s technical team could estimate the products and provide CAD drawings showing the profiles and layout.

The client chose Legion box gutters with Colonnade downpipes, Trueline fascia and soffits.

As the property is situated only 50 metres from the sea, the rainwater system would need to be marine-grade finished to ensure the longest possible duration. Therefore, the products were polyester powder coated in RAL 7032 to match the new windows and doors, which not only gives it the colour finish to match the newly installed windows and doors but also protects the aluminium from coastal erosion.

ARP was chosen for this project due to its quick response to the site survey request and the ability to provide designs for the roofline trims.

Aluminium was the perfect choice for the roofline and rainwater products on this property as it is strong, durable and non-corrosive.

The ability to match the coating to the other elements of the building ensures that the system blends in with the rest of the property.

Ian Whittaker, proprietor of Inside Out, said:

The soffits, fascias and rainwater system created the look I was after and is a great improvement on using uPVC for the colour and visual effect.
