Peterborough Concrete Gutter Replacement
If you’ve ever experienced concrete guttering, also known as finlock guttering, then it will probably come as no surprise to learn that this particular system was only ever fitted on around 70,000 houses built in the UK. The reason for this relatively low number is simply the flaws inherent in a concrete gutter, flaws which can cause serious problems for the householder.
In simple terms, any concrete gutter will eventually fail, and when it does fail it will start allowing water to ingress into the house. The impact of this water will come in several forms. Most obviously, it will create water marks and damp patches. Eventually these will encourage the growth of mould, and all the time the water will be attacking the fabric of the house within the walls and ceilings.
Why Replace Concrete Gutters?
Often, the proposed concrete gutter solutions will involve concrete gutter lining, but the sad truth is that this quick fix doesn’t work. The lining is only intended to seal the gaps caused by sections of the concrete gutter falling away externally, and will do nothing to ease the problems caused by the failing gutter itself, which will just get worse.
The fact of the matter is that the only way to deal with a failing concrete gutter is to have it replaced completely with a uPVC alternative. This will provide a solution which is modern, low-maintenance and visually pleasing.
