Essex Concrete Gutter Replacement
The problems which are always caused by concrete gutters can make it difficult to understand why house builders ever thought it was a good idea to have them installed. In fact, only 70,000 houses in the whole of the UK were ever built with this solution in place, which demonstrates just how quickly it became apparent that flaws in concrete gutters mean that they are clearly not fit for purpose.
The flaws in question mean that all concrete gutters are bound to fail eventually, and when they do the effects can be catastrophic. A failing concrete gutter will let water ingress into the house on which it is installed. Invasive water of this kind can damage the fabric of walls and ceilings in the house, as well as causing visible signs like damp patches and water marks. In addition to this the damp will encourage the growth of black mould, something which is thought to pose a potential threat to the health of people who have to live with it.
Why Replace Concrete Gutters?
When all of this is taken into account it’s no surprise that householders are desperate to find effective concrete gutter solutions. Unfortunately the solution which is often suggested is far from effective, as it involves repairing or replacing the concrete gutter lining.
Since this lining is only in place to seal the gaps where concrete has fallen away externally, repairing it will do little to stop the problems of water ingress and may actually make them worse. The only solution which actually deals with the problems once and for all involves removing the concrete completely and having it replaced with new, no maintenance uPVC guttering.
