I have seen some people paint theirs black but i think that may be too dull. although the aim is to prevent it from looking unsightly with moss.
any ideas welcomed
I have no pets but I wouldnt want to put chemicals into the water ways. It is on the outside of the gutter and not the inside though.Pre wrote:Read the MSDS first on those products before deciding to use, MSDS not readily available on website says alot, product is toxic and caustic and also listed as a pesticide due to its chemical composition. While it may obviously work well for certain situations I might think twice before using in active water ways if pets are in the equation.

the paint line was A100 at the time however now they have a line Emerald which should be better than the A100 however I never used that one yet
Penta also has a line up on paints formulated for gutters however I have not used that yet.
I suggest you call one of these two companies and speak to paint specialist not a sales rep.
for Sherwin Williams the best branch to deal with is Arima
Penta you need to call Ansa Coatings Ltd on Tumpuna Road Arima
