Dirty Gutter Soffit Fascia Soffit UPVC Durham UK THLCO

Its that time of year again where, gutters are needed to function correctly, i.e allow rain water to flow freely through and drain via the down pipe.

The warm weather of summer 2018 has unfortunately come to an end.

Even though we are in Autumn if your external gutter, fascia, soffit, down pipes, UPVC windows are showing signs of a buildup of algae or dirt then they need to be cleaned.

Why do I need to clean my? – Dirty Gutter fascia soffit UPVC windows.

What forms over time when left dirty on UVPC is what is commonly known as tiger stripes –

Dark, vertical streaks, commonly found on the outsides of gutters, window frames, UVPC doors, are known in the industry as tiger stripes.


(An example of how UPVC is effected by tiger stripes and the permanent stains created when never cleaned)

They are a consequence of the buildup of dirt, grime, algae and pollution on the plastic.

When this substance gets wet, it tends to trickle down the outside of the UVPC and overtime these tiger stripes when left leave a permanent stripe on the UPVC plastic which cannot be removed.

The solution when this happens is to replace all the guttering, soffit, fascia, UVPC windows or doors, whatever has been effected. This is a very expensive cost.

When you compare the cost of UVPC replacement on your property compared with an scheduled annual UVPC plastic clean for your property the cost is very minimal in comparison.
