Lack of maintenance costs money.
The vast majority of gutters are zinc plated mild steel that, after the first year, hold a collection of leaves and other debris, so as they rot, produce an alkaline that attracts the zinc plating resulting in a very much reduced life span. Simple cleaning and a coat of Bitumastic paint considerably increases their life expectancy.
A good quality microporous stain will protect your timber chalet for up to eight years if the manufacturers’ claims are to be believed. However, the south facing elevations generally require a light rub down and one coat of good quality wood stain applying every two years. If your chalet is regularly maintained on an elevation by elevation basis, it only costs a few hundred pounds every 2 years rather than a very expensive job every 6-8 years and helps to prevent exposed timber from rotting.
