Warwickshire Concrete Gutter Replacement
There’s a reason why only 70,000 houses were ever built in the UK with finlock gutters installed and that reason is pretty simple – finlock gutters, which are more commonly known as concrete gutters, have in-built flaws which mean they are almost bound to fail. When they do fail it can have a dramatic impact on the house in question, and seeking concrete guttering repair can seem to be the obvious solution.
The bad news is that the type of repair often carried out involves sealing concrete guttering by simply fitting or replacing a lining. Even when a lining is fitted, however, it is only meant to seal the gutter at the points where the external concrete has fallen away. Although the lining may well cover those points, it won’t actually do anything to deal with the issues brought about by failing concrete guttering, which will, in fact, get worse.
Why Replace Concrete Gutters?
When it comes to the issues caused by failing concrete guttering, the details will vary slightly from case to case, depending upon the degree to which the gutter is failing and the location of the faults. In general, however, if your concrete guttering is failing then you can expect water to be ingressing into the property.
The impact of this can be severe, ranging from water marks to unsightly damp patches and the growth of mould on interior walls. As well as being unpleasant to look at, mould of this kind has been linked to a range of adverse health outcomes. Bearing all of this in mind, the only real solution to the problem of failing concrete guttering is to have it replaced with uPVC guttering, a modern, maintenance free option that outperforms concrete guttering in every way.
