What are the advantages of replacing concrete gutters?

Concrete guttering is going to need replacing eventually. Concrete Gutters need to be changed to a better and damage-resistant material. Depending on what you need, there is a solution for you.

Property

Concrete is heavy, unappealing, and porous. Concrete gutters don’t add value to your house. In fact, they have a negative impact on your property. Their weight puts significant strain on the building, and as they slowly erode parts of the gutter can come away and fall.

 

Family

Our families are important to us, and our homes are designed to be a safe space for them. The last thing we would want is for harm to befall them. One more immediate event would be if the concrete gutters were to fall from the roof. The more insidious problem would be damp in the walls. Mould can become airborne and get into the lungs.

 

Cost

If you are thinking of getting the gutters repaired to save some money, it will cost more in the long run. Re lining the gutters with bitumen can give another 20 years of water resistance, but if the water has already made it into the gaps in the concrete, then it will be too late. It will be cheaper long-term to invest in alternate guttering such as uPVC.

 

What materials can be used for replacing your concrete gutters?

UPVC

Probably the most common material used when a replacement is required, uPVC is usually the most cost-effective option of material. They are lightweight and sectioned for easy installation. uPVC is formed by heating up plastic powder and injected into moulds to form the right shape.

 

Aluminium

Due to its high level of corrosion resistance, and lighter weight for transportation and application, aluminium is a popular alternative to uPVC. Aesthetically speaking, aluminium has a striking appearance but can take longer to install.

 

Steel

Galvanised steel is another resistant material, and much stronger than uPVC, meaning it can withstand a lot more water without deformation. It can also come in multiple colour options.

 

Copper

The more expensive option compared to the others mentioned, copper is incredibly striking to look at. Although they don’t offer much more effective than steel or aluminium, they are very resistant to mildew and rotting.
