Concrete Gutter Removal & Replacement in Norfolk

The decline of concrete gutters began in the 70s when cavity wall construction was no longer an issue. Iron gutter systems have been around since WWII but had their drawbacks, including shortages caused by World War II and production limitations on steel plants after the war ended. This led many people towards using alternatives like concrete instead, which worked well until problems arose in the long term.

Over time, these gutters become porous and lose their useability. Instead of protecting a home from water damage and rainfall, the concrete absorbs the water, retaining it and causing structural problems for a property, both internally and externally.

Today, thousands of homes across the UK are still fitted with concrete gutters, with homeowners unaware of the structural issues they cause. This results in many homeowners facing unnecessary costs from leakages, mould, damp, cold bridging and more, unable to resolve the issue or understand where the root of the problem lies.

Benefits of Concrete Gutter Lining

For a more cost-effective solution, you can instead opt for our concrete gutter lining process.

Gutter lining is an alternative repair service that we’ve designed to allow the homeowner to retain their original concrete gutter system, purely by re-lining them.

Our gutter lining process at Finlock Removals carefully removes the old lining before implementing a new, modern substitute, sealing the gutter from further leaks and damage.

Investing in concrete gutter lining is a more budget-friendly option, with a lower upfront cost. However, removal is often considered the safer option, purely because concrete gutter lining is often seen as a temporary solution.

While re-lining has its advantages and it’s worth the investment to fix any immediate issues, there is a risk associated with it, since there’s no guarantee that these problems won’t arise once more in the future.

The Concrete Gutter Lining Process

  1. Prep the property for re-lining.
  2. Remove the roof tiles to make the following steps easier.
  3. Carefully remove the old lining and clean the gutters thoroughly from debris and other blockages, such as leaves or moss.
  4. Once thoroughly cleaned, the gutter will be lined using our non-porous and quick-drying waterproof paint, which is more effective than an alternative lining solution.
  5. Once the lining is dried, your EPS system is then installed, and flash form fitted before the tiles are placed back.
  6. Finally, if your home is attached to a neighbouring property, the gutters will be seamlessly joined to your neighbour’s guttering to ensure better protection for your home.

The Problems with Concrete Gutters in Norfolk

Concrete gutters often run into several issues after they reach their 30-year life expectancy. Concrete gutters are a porous material and are prone to leaks, mould, damp and other issues.

One of the major problems that impact concrete guttering is leaks. It is often the first sign that your gutter system may be damaged or not working effectively. Concrete gutters that are poorly maintained through this can also result in the gutters sagging, leading to structural damage as well as further risk to windows that sit underneath.

Another problem that often arises with concrete gutters is thermal bridging. This occurs when heat from inside your home escapes through the concrete gutters and into the cold air outside, resulting in a loss of energy. This loss of energy and subsequent heat then leads to higher energy bills.

Replace or Repair?

The above issues can be repaired either through the removal and replacement of the gutters or by re-lining them. While lining has its array of benefits, to ensure the issues don’t return, it is often seen as more advantageous in the long term to remove your older concrete gutters.


As previously mentioned, concrete gutter lining is a more suitable short-term solution that’s cost-effective to implement. However, issues like leaks and thermal bridging can arise again unless the old guttering is completely removed and replaced. To reduce the risk of future repairs, investing in concrete gutter replacement is often recommended as a safer long-term solution.

While it is the more expensive option upfront,  replacement nullifies any long-term costs caused by concrete gutters that may arise in the future.
