Concrete Gutter Removal in Yorkshire
GutterWise are experienced and trained in Concrete Gutter Removal in Yorkshire.
Finlock concrete gutters were fitted in the 50s and 60s as the latest thing in technology. Over time with the change in heating in houses the concrete gutters couldn’t cope with the new heating systems in houses. The interior of the concrete gutters temperature was 20 degrees plus while the snow and ice in the actual gutter was often -10 degrees. The difference caused the gutters to move and break the joint seals. The concrete gutters then become porous and the water seeping through them gradually damages the concrete more and more until they are soft and start breaking up. Sections break off and as they are heavy could lead to serious injury or death if they fall off.
GutterWise have connectors to join concrete gutters to new gutters so if only part of a semi or terraced house is done the flow of water is not illegally altered. Remember that if you close off your neighbours gutter any internal damage he claims to sustain from this action could be laid at your door. Don’t think that as he has a down pipe on his side that you are immune from this liability. The original gutters are fitted level so the water has to be allowed to flow all ways.
We have fittings for over windows so the lintel will not be drilled into thus avoiding weakening the lintel.
We use continuous seamless aluminium gutter as it has a life of at least 30 years and because it is made on site to fit has no joints and cannot leak. The Seamless aluminium gutters replace finlock gutters after the Concrete Gutter Removal in Yorkshire. The New Seamless pipes have a high water capacity the aluminium is extra-large 125mm and is three times as big as square plastic gutter.
All the joints are done with polymers which are used to seal sea walls and have a factory guarantee not to leak for 25 years when used properly. Silicones won’t seal onto concrete or in wet areas for an extended time.
