What issues do concrete gutters cause?

Water

Concrete is porous; even the smallest amount of water can have an impact. Condensation causes damp, and weathering causes erosion. UPVC guttering is a cost-effective and simple way to protect your home. As a Cornwall concrete gutter replacement service, CGS will identify any damage caused by water damage.

Damage

As your concrete gutters start to age, they will become worn and damaged. Causing parts to crumble and fall away. If you see visible signs of the concrete gutters sinking, there will be water unable to drain away. In the most serious of scenarios, the guttering could fall and cause harm.

 

Concrete lining

If you are thinking of repairing your concrete gutters, you could line the concrete gutters with a water-resistant material that would help for a time, but you will need to replace the concrete guttering at some point. Lead is a ductile and soft material that has high corrosive resistance to water. The maximum time lead time it remains effective is 20 years.

Have you been looking at changing your windows? You will need to make sure they can support the weight of concrete gutters.
