Chester Concrete Gutter Replacement
If your house is one of those which were built with concrete gutters installed then there’s every chance you’ve already experienced the problems it can cause. Also known as finlock guttering, this is a system which comes with in-built flaws. That’s why it was only ever installed on as few as 70,000 UK homes, and it’s also why any concrete guttering still in place is going to fail at some point.
The knowledge that concrete guttering is going to fail makes it all the more important to understand just how drastic the impact of this can be. When concrete guttering fails it allows water to ingress into the house it was installed on. Water ingress of this kind attacks the very fabric of a house, creating unpleasant living conditions and lowering the value of a property. Some of the signs to look out for include water marks, damp patches and the growth of mould on interior surfaces. This last is particularly serious since mould of this kind is thought to pose a risk to health.
Why Replace Concrete Gutters?
People dealing with all of this are naturally keen to avail themselves of concrete gutter solutions. Unfortunately, the solution often offered will only make matters worse. It involves replacing or repairing the concrete gutter lining, which might sound sensible but won’t improve matters.
Since the lining is only in place to seal the gaps created by concrete falling away externally, fixing it will do nothing to alleviate water ingress and will actually make the problem worse.
Anyone coping with failing concrete gutters needs to understand that there is really only one viable solution, and that is to have the concrete gutter removed and a no maintenance uPVC gutter put up in its place.
