Finlock Gutter Removal & Replacement in Nottingham

Does your Nottingham property feature concrete gutters? If so, you are probably aware of how problematic this system has become, and how, over the years, the problems compound until your guttering system ultimately begins to fail.  Fortunately, Finlock Removals have developed tried-and-tested methods particularly for properties with Finlock gutters in Nottingham.

Removal of concrete gutters from your Nottingham property

Concrete gutter removal should be your go-to option if you can afford it and may not be as expensive as you may have been led to believe. For the long term, Finlock gutter removal is the most cost-effective option, as it only has to be done once, without you needing to revisit the issue down the line.

Bear in mind that the removal process is highly specialist orientated, and therefore should only be attempted by an experienced professional, in order to avoid doing further damage to yourself or your property. We’ve unfortunately witnessed some truly appalling quick fixes, that have cost the customer substantially more than it would have, later down the line.

Specialist Finlock removal services for Nottingham

Finlock Removals remove concrete gutters from residential properties in Nottingham and nationwide on a daily basis. To say that our team has unmatched experience, would be a gross understatement. Our proven method is the least disruptive, and most efficient way of safely removing your concrete gutters and replacing them with uPVC, in existence.

Once you have agreed to have your works completed by Finlock Removals, we will arrange a convenient installation date together. Our team prides itself on being trustworthy, so there’s no need for you to be there on the day, if you wish - as our fitters only need access to power, and any of the sides that we shall be working on. Some customers who don’t have external power sockets will put an extension lead through their letterbox or window, ensuring that it has been plugged in and switched on inside the property.

Our fitters will turn up to your Nottingham residence with ready-to-assemble access equipment, that can be erected and removed same-day. This access equipment is fully compliant with HSE rules and regulations, unlike their ladder cripple alternatives, which are common with other companies within the industry.

Finlock removal fitters will then employ specialist access equipment to remove the external part of your concrete gutters. This is a highly dust-inducing process; therefore, it is recommended that your windows are kept closed for this part – if you have left one open for us to access power, then this should now be closed also.

Each cement block of guttering is cut out one-by-one and collected into a large rubbish bag out of the way. It is integral that this part of the job is done correctly, as if the blocks are cut back too far, then it can’t be put back on. Equally, if the blocks aren’t cut back enough, then the water from your roof will leak down the back of your gutters, making them redundant.

Once the blocks have been removed, we shall then install pressure-treated timber against the exposed concrete that forms the lintel of your roof. If we were to remove the entire lintel, then you would additionally need to have a reroofing, which pushes the price up. In our experience, this is redundant, as if this part of the concrete was soaked, then it will soon dry out once it is no longer exposed to the elements.

Once the timber is in place, we shall install a fascia onto it, followed by gutter brackets, and finally, your new gutters and downpipes. Some downpipes are constructed of low-grade asbestos. They are likely to be the lowest grade possible, so don’t need to be approached with hazmat suits as you may think. That being said, these will need to be bagged and tagged separately by our trained professionals, who are certified to be able to handle asbestos appropriately.

Our fitters will install EPS trays underneath your first few rows of roof tiles. This aids the water in flowing off the roof and fully into your gutters, which is an added feature that most of our competitors don’t bother with.

Once the EPS trays have been installed, our team will then give your property a brush down. Any residual dust will inevitably be washed away within a few rainfalls. They shall then dismantle the access equipment and load it up, so that it is not in your way.

You’ll be astonished by the facelift that your house appears to have had, just by switching you’re your concrete gutters to modern, non-problematic, uPVC gutters. If you have in fact been experiencing damp patches in your Nottingham property, then we recommend that you allow these to dry out completely. This may take a few months, but can be accelerated by investing in a dehumidifier, or regularly opening your windows on a pleasant day.

Finest Finlock lining in Nottingham

As well as cement guttering removal services, Finlock Removals also offer a lining solution for properties across Nottingham. We fully empathise that not everyone can afford specialist Finlock removal. Our advice is that, rather than paying someone to do a cheap job on one of your biggest assets, it is better to finance specialists who know what they’re doing, and can offer unrivalled customer support, to do an outstanding job - whether it be for full removal, or for a lining solution.

Finlock Removals make no attempt to hide the fact that lining solutions do not last forever. We would much rather be honest with you, than to create disillusions, which will ultimately leave you feeling disappointed. We do, however, have a tried-and-tested method for lining that should allow you to save up for full removal, while any problems you were experiencing are stopped in their tracks for the meantime.

Step-by-step concrete lining for your Nottingham home

In the same way as we would if you were having your Finlock gutters removed completely, our team will arrange to attend your property on a convenient date, with access equipment which we can assemble on-site.

Once our fitters have gained access to your gutter line, they will begin to clear it of any debris. This can include – but is not limited to – leaves, moss, tennis balls, etc. Once the gutter line is cleared, our team will then – where applicable – remove any previous linings. Piling one lining on top of another can have detrimental effects on your guttering; negatively affecting the capacity of water that they can hold, likely increasing the opportunity for flooding and water overflow.

Our fitters will turn up to your Nottingham residence with ready-to-assemble access equipment, that can be erected and removed same-day. This access equipment is fully compliant with HSE rules and regulations, unlike their ladder cripple alternatives, which are common with other companies within the industry.

What Problems do Finlock Gutters Cause?

 

There are a range of problems caused by concrete gutters. Because of the porousness of the concrete, the gutter is prone to failing, which leads to leaks and other issues with functionality of the gutters.

Problems like damp and mould start to appear in your home, as well as leaks, and external leaks from your gutters. Problems with your concrete gutters can result in both interior and exterior issues, as well as future costly repairs if left untreated.

Replace or Repair?

The above issues can be corrected by concrete gutter lining or a complete concrete gutter removal and replacement. Whilst both methods have their positives, a removal and replacement is the most effective method, to make sure the problems don’t occur again.

Cost

Concrete gutter lining is a better short-term solution, which is more cost-effective and greater for people on a budget. However, the issues are likely to return unless the concrete gutters are replaced entirely. For this reason, a concrete gutter replacement is the better alternative to avoid further repair work. A replacement will be the most cost-effective overall as it minimises future repair work. But it is also the most expensive upfront.
