The Process of Having Your Concrete Gutters Removed

Concrete gutter removal can be completed without the need for scaffolding, as we have invested heavily in providing our team with the latest Easi-Dec equipment. This ultimately saves the homeowner both money and hassle.  

Our fitters will arrive at your Cheshire residence with ready-to-assemble access equipment, which can easily be constructed and removed on the same day. This access equipment is fully compliant with HSE rules and regulations, unlike the ladder cripples alternatives, which are commonly used by other companies within the industry. The process is then completed by using a diamond-tipped cutting blade for more accurate work. 

We ensure all windows and doors are closed as we work, ensuring dust and noise is kept at bay. Moreover, as mentioned previously, only professionals like ourselves should conduct the job, as mistakes in or on your gutters can result in even more problems.  

Once your concrete guttering has been removed, our team will install new uPVC guttering, along with an E.P.S. tray system to provide ventilation for your roof space. We will clean up any mess left behind using our Hippo heavy-duty waste bags.

Concrete Gutter Lining in Cheshire

We also offer a lining solution, which is a cheaper but more short-term alternative that still does the job. We at Finlock Removals make no attempt to hide the fact that lining solutions do not last forever. Nevertheless, they are still worth the investment.  

We value clear communication and believe that it is a must with any business practice. We would much rather be honest with you than offer a false promise that will leave you feeling disappointed. Having said this, we have developed tried-and-tested lining methods that should allow you to save up for full removal, while any issues you were experiencing at the time will be stopped in the meantime.

The Lining Process for Concrete Gutters

  1. We prepare the site for concrete gutter lining. 
  2. Our team then remove the roof tiles, to make the following steps easier. 
  3. We get rid of any old lining and thoroughly clean the gutter of leaves, moss and other blockages. 
  4. Once cleaned, the gutter will be lined using our non-porous, quick-drying fibreglass waterproof paint, which is more effective than any alternative lining solution. 
  5. Once the lining has dried, your E.P.S. system will then be installed with flash form fitted, and the tiles will be replaced. 
  6. Finally, if your Cheshire property is attached to a neighbour’s house, the gutters will be seamlessly joined to their gutter system to ensure better protection for your property.

Why are Concrete Gutters a Problem?

Concrete gutters became popular on homes between the 1950s and 1970s, owing to steel shortages at the time – which rendered metal guttering uncommon – in addition to the fact that they worked well with cavity walls. Concrete gutters can have a lifespan of up to 30 years but even less so if they are not maintained properly. Over time, concrete gutters become incredibly problematic for homeowners as they cause a myriad of problems.  

Concrete gutters are made of a porous material. This means that rather than removing the drainage water, the concrete absorbs it over time, ultimately causing many systems to fail. As the concrete soaks up the water rather than removing it, the gutter will become heavy, causing problems such as leakages, dampness and more.  

Leakages are one of the most common problems that many homeowners face and usually indicate that their concrete guttering is failing. Leaks will appear in the corners of the walls and if you have wallpaper, can sometimes cause it to peel.  

External leaks from your concrete gutters can result in dampness and mould appearing in your home as well. This can lead to both interior and exterior issues, resulting in costly repairs in the future if left untreated.  

Other issues if left untreated include: 

  • Windows will sag making them harder to open and close. 
  • Thermal bridging can occur, meaning heat will escape from your home more easily. 

Replace or Repair Costs - Finlock Removals Can Help

If you are facing the issues listed above, your concrete gutters will need to be either lined or replaced. Whilst the lining process has its benefits and is a cheaper alternative, it isn’t as long lasting as full removal and replacement. Finlock Removals offers impartial advice on what the best solution for your Cheshire home would be. If a full removal isn’t financially viable, we offer a professional lining service that will keep problems at bay while you save up for a more long-term fix. 

We want to help save you money in the long run. We highly recommend our replacement service as it constitutes a safer long-term solution. Investing in concrete gutter replacement protects you against any future costs and repairs required to fix the problems caused by concrete guttering at your Cheshire property, both internal and external.
