OUR ROOFING SERVICES
Total Roofing and Cladding can find the right downpipes for your home, no matter what style or color they are. If you’ve noticed that your downpipes aren’t up to the task during heavy rainstorms, it’s preferable to expand their size. Your roof gutters work on the same principle: the larger they are, the more water they can carry. Leaving downpipe unchecked, allowing them to block and become clogged can stress your whole roof.
Square downpipes are designed for aesthetics more than efficiency. Although round pipes allow for faster flow, the difference is not significant. There is no need to change the square pipes because they complement particular house styles and you may get away with the greatest look without severely impacting the performance of your guttering.
A downpipe spreader is an accessory that distributes water from a higher-level downpipe to a lower-level roof, typically a verandah roof. It’s a method of managing water flow and preventing overflows from the lower roof. It’s just a pipe that’s sealed on both ends and joined to the downpipe at a right angle to distribute the water out through a number of small holes punched into the length of the sealed pipe.
A downpipe’s maximum catchment area is 47 m2. You split your roof space into portions that don’t exceed the maximum catchment and install downpipes in each section.
