Cheshire Concrete Gutter Replacement
If you live in one of the 70,000 UK homes that were once built with concrete guttering installed then there’s a very good chance you already know something about concrete gutter problems. The figure of 70,000 might seem quite low and that’s because the problems built into concrete guttering – also known as finlock guttering – are so acute that it is bound to fail over time.
The concrete gutter problems which occur when that failure happens can all be attributed to the fact that water is able to ingress to the interior of the house. Allowing water inside a house in this manner is responsible for a whole range of problems. By attacking the fabric of the walls and ceilings the water will degrade the actual structure of the house, and outward signs that this is happening include water marks, damp patches and the growth of mould patches. As well as being a visible clue to the issues being caused, this kind of mould is also potentially hazardous to the health of people living in the home.
Why Replace Concrete Gutters?
Naturally, people are keen to seek out concrete gutter solutions when all of this happens, but those solutions are often inadequate. In many cases they hinge upon repairing or replacing the concrete gutter lining, but this will actually make the problem worse.
The lining is only meant to cover gaps where concrete falls away externally, and will do nothing to deal with wider water ingress.
In simple terms, if you want a genuine solution to a failing concrete gutter then you have to get that gutter removed completely, and replaced with a new, no maintenance uPVC alternative.
