Staffordshire Concrete Gutter Replacement
Concrete gutters, which are sometimes called finlock gutters, were only ever installed on 70,000 houses built in the UK. This is a relatively small number for the whole country, and the reason it isn’t any higher is that concrete gutters come with inherent flaws. These flaws mean that any concrete gutter will fail, and when it does the consequences are extremely serious.
The major consequence of a failing concrete gutter is that water is allowed to ingress into the house. Once this happens the water can attack interior walls and ceilings, causing serious and long term damage. Outward signs that this is happening might vary from case to case, but will include water marks, damp patches and the growth of unhealthy mould. The last of these is particularly important as it poses a potential threat to health.
Why Replace Concrete Gutters?
Concrete gutter problems of this kind are crying out for effective concrete gutter solutions. Sadly, the solution usually offered involves the concrete gutter lining, which can indeed be repaired and replaced.
This lining is only meant to seal gaps where concrete has fallen away externally, however, so fixing it will actually only make the problem of water ingress worse.
The only solution which really deals with the issues caused by failing concrete gutters is to have them removed and replaced. The replacement should be a modern, no maintenance uPVC alternative, and the best people to do the job are the experts at Adeft Services LTD.
