What issues do concrete gutters cause?


Concrete is not watertight; even the smallest amount of moisture can have a big impact. Condensation can cause dampness, and the weather can cause erosion. uPVC guttering can be a cost effective and simple way to protect your home. As a Bedfordshire concrete gutter replacement service, CGS will identify any damage caused by water damage.


The longer the concrete guttering is affected by the weather, the worse the damage will become. Causing parts to break away. There may be visible signs of the concrete gutters sinking which would stop water effectively being drained.


Lining the concrete

If you are thinking of companies that offer Gutter Repairs in the Bedfordshire area, you could opt to line the concrete gutters with a new coat of bitumen, this would stop any future water from getting into the guttering. This is only a plaster on a more serious issue, and you will need to replace the concrete guttering sooner rather than later.


What materials can be used for replacing your concrete gutters?


The most seen and used material, uPVC is usually the most affordable option of material. They are light and come in sections for easy installation. uPVC is formed by heating up plastic powder and injected into moulds to form the right shape.



For a high level of corrosion resistance, and lighter weight for transportation and application, aluminium is a popular alternative to uPVC. Purely based on appearance, aluminium has a distinctive appearance but can take longer to install. Furthermore, like many metal products, prices are skyrocketing making it more expensive.



Galvanised steel is another resistant material, and stronger than uPVC. It can also come in multiple colour options like uPVC. As with Aluminium, it is more expensive though.



The most expensive option compared to the others mentioned. Although they don’t offer much more effectiveness than steel or aluminium, they are very resistant to mildew and rotting.
