What issues do concrete gutters cause?

Water

Concrete is not watertight; even the smallest amount of moisture can have a big impact. Condensation can cause damp, 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.

Damage

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

 

What materials can be used for replacing your concrete gutters?

UPVC

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.

Aluminium

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.

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.
