What is concrete gutter lining?
Concrete gutter lining is a solution that can be used to extend the life of your current guttering system, depending on the extent of the damage.
Once preparations have been completed, a specialised gutter liner is laid throughout the whole length of your concrete gutter, leaving it clean, watertight and sealed against the elements.
It offers coverage with a fully waterproof material tailored to your property, providing a shorter-term, more economical and less invasive solution to removing them fully.

How lining improves your home
Concrete gutter lining is a service that re-lines your gutters with a waterproof material. This can be aluminium, rubber, bitumen or, in our case, fibreglass. Once the paint is in place, it helps ensure the gutters are waterproof once again.
Lining your gutters extends their lifetime and ensures they are fully working again. This is an effective repair job that ensures your gutters are returned to full functional order. Concrete guttering can require consistent, regular repair work over its lifetime. Processes such as lining can help to rectify some issues and result in fewer repair costs.
The lining process
Our fitting teams will arrive at your property ready to go. They bring all the equipment they need, including HSE-approved Easi-Dec staging equipment, so you won’t require scaffolding for the process unless access is particularly problematic.
Before beginning any repair work, our engineers will clean the area around the damaged concrete gutter thoroughly, removing any debris, loose concrete or other materials that might interfere with the repair process.
Our installers will examine your guttering to determine the extent of the damage. Next, they'll carefully remove your first course of tiles. This isn’t entirely essential and may not need to be done if the tiles are nailed down. However, removing them does make the following steps slightly easier for our fitters.
A lot of our customers have had their gutters re-lined previously with aluminium or bitumen, neither of which tend to last in the long term. Therefore, one of the first steps is to remove these failed gutter linings.
Once any Finlock gutter linings have been removed, or even if you haven’t had your gutters lined, there will be a fair amount of debris left over. Our fitting teams ensure that your gutters are thoroughly cleaned out.
Now that your gutters are nice and clean, they will be painted with our quick-drying waterproof fibreglass. Our fitting teams don’t scrimp on this and ensure that your concrete gutters receive a proper, thorough coating of our lining.
Most of the work that we do is on terraced or semi-detached houses, so we have perfected our own method of joining to neighbouring gutters so that you don’t have to worry about falling out with anyone.
We then fit an EPS (eaves protection system) to your home. This is an essential step and one which most companies do not do! This EPS tray slides underneath your old felt and then angles down into the gutter, ensuring that no water can enter your home through holes or rips along the bottom of your roof felt.
We then join our EPS trays together to ensure that none of the individual trays are at risk from slipping or moving. This isn’t entirely necessary but it's an extra step that we like to take.
Our fitters then fit flashform over the top of the EPS trays. Again, this isn’t entirely necessary, but we would rather be too cautious than not cautious enough when it comes to making sure that your home is waterproof.
Your Finlock gutters have now been lined, so our fitting team will carefully put your roof tiles back in place. This will cover the flashform and most of the EPS, except for the small portion that overlaps into your gutters.
Once the work is complete, our fitters will tidy up and all rubbish will be removed from the site, leaving your home as clean as it was when we arrived.
Now it's time to pay your bill and leave us a glowing review!

We had our gutters lined by Finlock Removals, they were very professional and we aren’t experiencing problems anymore. If we decide to get them removed we will go back to Finlock Removals.
Mr and Mrs Rees | Surrey
We were looking at selling our property but found that buyers were trying to haggle money off because our property had concrete gutters. We decided to get them removed and replaced with upvc and we got our asking price.

Our concrete gutters were leaking, we’d had them lined by another company but apparently that counted for nothing. We decided to get them removed by Finlock Removals and haven’t looked back
