The guttering around your home is an important part of protecting it from the elements: water is severely damaging if not drained away. Guttering and drainage have devastating effects if they rupture or fail.

What issues do concrete gutters cause?

Concrete gutters, also referred to as Finlock guttering, are far from a long-term solution for almost all homes in the UK. The initial benefit of concrete guttering was how cost-effective they were in the short term. If damp gets into the property, you can decorate over it, but it will come back.

Lining the concrete

When you are looking at companies that offer Gutter Repairs in the Cardiff area, you could choose to line the concrete gutters with different materials that would help for a time, but you will need to replace the concrete guttering sooner rather than later. Lead, for example, is a ductile and soft material that has high corrosive resistance to water. The bigger issue with lead is it is toxic, and it will only remain effective for up to 20 years.

What are the advantages of replacing concrete gutters?

Concrete Gutter Replacement will become a necessity sooner than you may expect. Maintenance and reapplying lining will only prolong the inevitable. Concrete Gutters in Cardiff, need to be upgraded to a lighter and weather-resistant material

Concrete has a cold grey colour that has a negative effect on the beauty of your home. Additionally, if you need to replace your windows, concrete gutters will most likely be too heavy for the frames. Newer windows don’t come with the reinforcements necessary to stop the gutters from falling. This causes new windows to bow under the weight of the wet blocks of concrete.
