Concrete Gutter Replacement In Berkshire
Concrete guttering is also known as finlock guttering, and was only ever installed on 70,000 houses built in the UK. The reason why this number isn’t higher is the massive impact which concrete gutter problems tended to have on the people living in those homes. The flaws built into the concrete guttering solutions mean that it is bound to fail eventually, and when it does, the search for concrete gutter solutions begins.
All too often those solutions amount to sealing the inside of the concrete gutter. While this may seem like a quick and simple concrete gutter solution the downside is that it won’t deal with the underlying problems. Sealing may cover the gaps between blocks where the concrete has fallen away externally, but it won’t do anything to deal with the wider issues caused by failing concrete guttering, and these wider issues can be extremely serious.
Why Replace Concrete Gutters?
If you’ve suffered the impact of failing concrete guttering then you’ll know just how severe they can be. In simple terms, the failing guttering enables water to ingress to the interior of the house to which it is fitted. The degree and severity of the ingress will vary, depending upon how badly the guttering is failing and where the faults are located, but the problems caused are likely to include water marks on interior walls, damp patches and the appearance of mould.
When you factor in the hidden impact which water ingress is also likely to have on the fabric of a building, it’s clear that some kind of action is needed.
The most effective form that this action can take is replacing the failing concrete guttering with new uPVC guttering, a maintenance free, up to date and highly effective alternative
