Hertfordshire Concrete Gutter Replacement
All concrete gutters, also known as finlock gutters, come with inherent flaws which mean that they are bound to fail after a period of time. The impact this failure could have helps to explain the fact that they were only ever installed on 70,000 houses built in the whole of the UK.
A failing concrete gutter will let water from outside the house ingress to the inside of the house. The issues which this causes are highly damaging. In the first instance the interior fabric of walls and ceilings will be damaged. Outward indications of water ingress could include water marks, damp patches and even unhealthy mould growth. Put all of this together and it soon becomes clear that a concrete gutter solution has to be found.
Why Replace Concrete Gutters?
Unfortunately, the chosen solution often offered to householders suffering this problem doesn’t have the desired effect. It involves repairing or replacing the concrete gutter lining, which will actually make the problem of water ingress worse.
The lining was initially intended simply to seal the gaps where concrete has fallen away externally, so fixing it in this manner is not a genuine solution.
What is a genuine solution, however, is having the concrete gutter in question removed and replaced with the alternative of a new, no maintenance uPVC version.
