Earlier this year I had our concrete gutters fully re-lined. Already there are some damp patches at the top of the interior walls. So, a complete waste of money. The next step will be either aluminium linings or complete removal and replacement with uPVC. Which is best. Aluminium lining companies say that their way is sufficient and can be guaranteed for 20 years. Also, that removal is a drastic operation that can cause structural problems. Gutter removal people say that their way is the best and only long term solution. Any advice gratefully received. Mike.

Even the Ali liners don’t work cause they never go up the roof, it just lines the gutter. We simply use rubber, tiles off and a metre up the roof, never had a callback, ever!

Do you plyboard the gutters out first bud or just go in with the contact adhesive. I know that the water based stuff reacts with felt etc...unsure if the contact adhesive is the same tho.

No we just clean out down to the bear conc wire brush and blowtorch the lot so it’s clean and bone dry and then contact.
