Concrete Gutter Removal & Replacement in West Sussex

Concrete gutters were popular in homes built throughout the 1950s – 1970s. Concrete gutters are also commonly known as Finlock gutters. They were a replacement for iron gutters, mainly because of the steel shortages at the time. However, they became extremely popular because they worked well with cavity walls.

However, concrete gutters overtime become porous. Concrete gutters are known to have a lifespan of around 30 years but after this time, they are known to fail. Thousands of UK properties still have concrete gutters in place, despite their outdated lifespan. This is no different in West Sussex, where many homeowners are stuck with concrete gutters and the problems that arise with owning them.

Finlock Gutter Removal

The concrete gutter removal process can be accomplished without the need for scaffolding, and it is an affordable way to get your home's exterior looking brand-new. In this process, we use a diamond-tipped cutting blade for more accurate and precise work. Although this process is loud and dusty, professionals should always conduct the job, as mistakes in or on the gutters can cause even more problems.

Once the concrete gutters have been removed, our team will then install the new gutters and an EPS tray to provide ventilation for the home’s roof space. Any mess left behind will also be cleaned up with heavy-duty Hippo waste bags.

Concrete Gutter Lining For Your Property in West Sussex

The concrete gutter lining is a cheaper alternative to replacing your concrete gutter. This process allows you to keep your concrete gutter but just re-line it, so it restores the gutters’ original value by sealing them from further leaks and issues.

However, the concrete gutter lining is only a short-term solution. It will fix the problems you may be facing with your current concrete gutters, but the issues can still arise over time.

If you are on a budget, the concrete gutter lining is an efficient way to stop leakages for an extended period. The lining process rarely requires scaffolding, unless access is particularly problematic.

What Problems do Finlock Gutters Cause?

Concrete gutters are known to have many problems because they are porous. This means the concrete absorbs the water, rather than getting rid of it. This leads to many internal and external problems.

One of the most common problems that occur is leaks; these can happen in both interior as well as exterior. Leaks can lead to damp, which can then lead to mould, which ultimately leads to costly repair bills down the line if left untreated for too long.

Replace or Repair?

The issues with concrete gutters can be fixed by replacing the concrete gutter or re-lining the gutter. Although both approaches have their positive elements, removal and replacement is the most effective solution, to make sure your guttering system is restored to its functional, working order.

Cost

The concrete gutter lining is a better short-term solution because it is the cheaper upfront option. However, there is a risk that the issues are likely to occur again unless the gutters are removed and replaced entirely.
