What are the advantages of replacing concrete gutters?

Concrete guttering won't last forever. In fact, they will most likely need replacing very soon. As the last time concrete gutters were installed into new homes was in the 1970s.

Property

Concrete is weighty, unattractive, and porous. Concrete gutters are not adding value to your house; they have the opposite effect on your property. Their weight puts pressure on the building and as they slowly erode, parts of the gutter may fall.

Family

Our families are the most important, and our homes should be a safe space for them. The last thing we would want is for anything to happen to them. The most serious problem would be the damp in the walls. Mould spores are released into the air and can cause breathing problems.

 

Cost

You may think that gutter repairs would be cheaper than having them removed; it could actually 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 effectiveness than steel or aluminium, they are very resistant to mildew and rotting.
