Concrete Gutter Repair Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire
Our company was contacted by a domestic household to clean and repair concrete guttering in Milton Keynes Buckinghamshire.
The guttering had been leaking for some time, and the homeowner had been informed that an internal mould problem that had recently developed was being caused by a damp problem brought on by the cracked concrete gutters at the front of the property.
The front gutter was full of decomposed leaves, dirt, moss and other debris that over time had crept into the downpipe and impaired the pipe from functioning at capacity.
This blockage was consistently preventing the dispersion of rainwater during moderate to heavy rainfall causing the gutter to fill and overflow onto the fabric of the building to cause additional problems for the property.
The guttering systems primary purpose is to dispense water away from the building, but this gutter was working against the property by holding a large volume of water against the property for prolonged periods.
The concrete gutter had several cracks which we identified on inspection and repaired and re-sealed after cleaning the guttering system.
Our company offered the household the choice of a protective coating that would actively protect the guttering system from future cracks and leaks for up to 25 years, the domestic client accepted this coating and a personal guarantee from our company.
After the guttering was thoroughly cleaned Riolett applied the protective waterproof coating and provided the client with a written guarantee of the protective gutter coatings 25-year lifespan.
