Regal Rainwater Systems for Queen Anne Style Refurbishment

Yeoman Rainguard rainwater systems have played a part in the refurbishment of one of Potton’s show homes. The Milchester, a Queen Anne style, 3,000 square foot home, was one of the original show homes to be sited at The Potton Self Build Show Centre, based in St Neots, back in 1992.

After many years of service, it was time for The Milchester to under-go a refurbishment, both inside and out to modernise facilities while retaining the much-loved traditional feel throughout the property.

With this in mind when it came to replacing the rainwater system Potton chose gutters and downpipes from the Yeoman Rainguard XL Aluminium range. Installed were 125 x 100 MOG profile gutters along with 75 x 75mm square downpipes finished in a durable and stylish black textured powder coating.

Yeoman Rainguard XL Aluminium rainwater systems offer the benefits of a modern system – easy installation, long maintenance free life cycle, recyclable material – partnered with the look and feel of traditional gutters and downpipes, well suited to the exterior design of The Milchester show home.

Terry Mahoney, Marketing Project Manager at Potton commented,

“We have worked with Yeoman Rainguard from the early years of the Potton Self Build Centre at ST Neots. Not only do they have an excellent choice of product to suit the show homes from an aesthetic point of view but one that can stand the test of time. Yeoman Rainguard has been used on various houses at the centre supplying a range of rainwater goods including Aluminium, GRP and Zinc systems, the latest project being the complete remodelling of our flagship show home “The Milchester”. Over the years Yeoman have provided many of our self-build clients with an excellent level of customer service with both product and service and we believe they are the perfect partners for us as market leaders in the self- build industry.”
