Finlock Gutter Removal and Replacement in Derbyshire

Concrete gutters, also known as Finlock gutters, typically have a lifespan of 30 years, but without proper maintenance, they can deteriorate quicker and cause additional problems. Since concrete gutters are porous, they can absorb water rather than effectively channelling it away, leading to further complications over time. Many homeowners in Derbyshire are finding themselves dealing with the issue of failing Finlock gutters.

Solutions to Finlock guttering problems at your property

When you're experiencing concrete gutter problems, it is important to take action. By removing and replacing the system entirely, this means no more issues will arise in the future.

At Finlock Removals, we have over 20 years’ experience in the field and tons of knowledge about every issue that can arise when these systems are unmaintained. When it comes to concrete guttering, we guarantee a job well done.


How Finlock Removals can help your Derbyshire home

Finlock Removals specialises in removing concrete gutters from homes in Derbyshire and across the UK and replacing them with new uPVC guttering. Our team are all experienced professionals whose quality of work is second to none. The problems with concrete gutters are well-known. The porous material absorbs water, rather than getting rid of it which leads to internal and external issues in your home’s structure.

If you want to avoid expensive repair bills down the line, it is important that leaks are repaired as soon as possible and efficiently. Mould can grow in moist environments where there's water intrusion - the result being costly damages later on if left untreated for too long.

To deal with the issues mentioned above, concrete gutters can either be lined or replaced. Whilst the lining process has its benefits such as being a cheaper alternative, it’s not permanent and issues can still arise again in the future. At Finlock Removals, we advise a full removal and replacement to get rid of the problems entirely.

The replacement process

Step 1

Step 1

We have invested heavily in supplying our teams with the latest Easi-dec access equipment which reduces the need for scaffolding, saving you money and hassle. The fitters will erect their Easi-dec upon arrival and remove it the same day.

Step 2

Step 2

The first steps involve pushing back the first row of tiles, removing any failed aluminium lining and also removing any of the face plates that can be found on the square style of concrete gutters.

Step 3

Step 3

We use a diamond tipped cutting blade to cut away your finlock concrete blocks. This is a noisy, dusty process and one that has to be done properly to avoid any structural damage to the property

Step 4

Step 4

We install a pressure treated timber faceplate to the remaining concrete, this gives us a straight and solid base to attach the uPVC products to and also helps eliminate cold bridging.

Step 5

Step 5

Using only the best materials is paramount to our work, we will install a uPVC fascia, soffit and guttering to your property. All of our materials have a 50 year manufacturers guarantee and they will not fade or discolour.

Step 6

Step 6

We will install an EPS (Eaves Protection System) tray to your property. This slides underneath the felt and overruns into the new guttering. It provides ventilation to your roof space, stops water getting through any tears or holes along the bottom of your felt and directs all water perfectly into the new guttering.

One of the final and most crucial stages is joining your lovely new uPVC guttering to next doors concrete guttering (if you share a downpipe). We have a tried and tested method for doing this and it require a lot of skill – skill that we have in abundance.
