Freefoam’s rainwater range Freeflow 1 is designed to be leak-free and to stay that way. It withstands extreme differences in temperature, from a sweltering 30°C down to a finger-numbing -15°C. it will protect your home whatever the weather.
Fluctuations in temperature cause gutters to expand in the heat and contract in the cold. You’ve probably heard the sound of them moving when you’ve been sitting outside on a warm summer’s evening – or perhaps you’ve been kept awake at night as they creak and shift about as they cool down.
This constant movement puts strains on standard seals which are hard and inflexible, so they soon begin to leak. Freefoam’s long-life, advanced compressible seals permit movement without noise, and without creating gaps that allow water to escape.
Freefoam’s Freeflow1 range has a distinctive layer of white PVC inside the gutter, whatever the colour on the inside. This cleverly reduces the amount of heat absorbed and decreases movement by 40% compared to a standard system, so it performs all year round. It means Freeflow guttering stays leak-free longer.
Freefoam products are manufactured with extra Titanium Dioxide (TiO2), the ingredient used in strong sunblocks. So as well as reflecting heat and accommodating movement, the Freeflow1 range is better protected against harmful UV rays making It more durable.

Is It Time to Replace Your Current Guttering?
Upgrading your guttering may not be the biggest thing on your mind at the moment, but if there are clear issues with your guttering – we highly recommend that you get in touch and discuss a replacement guttering system. If you detect any of the following issues for your guttering in Cardiff, get in touch with our friendly team today:
- Cracks or fractures in the guttering are easy to identify and small cracks can turn into big fractures. To protect your home – installing new guttering such as the Freeflow 1 system will rectify the issue and protect you from cracks due to elemental damage.
- Rust and mould may be present on the guttering which is usually caused by water. Water that remains sitting in the gutter is also an issue as the entire purpose of a guttering system is to clear water away from the roof or other areas of the property. These are both signs you need to replace the guttering system.
- If there are nails or screws that appear to be in odd places on your guttering system – this could also be the sign of a problem.
