How Finlock Removals can help your Shropshire home

As they age, Finlock guttering systems become porous and begin to absorb the moisture they’re supposed to be channeling away from your home, before allowing it to permeate into the structure of your home.

Not only does this lead to structural damage, but it also results in cold bridging, which is where heat escapes your home through a direct bridge to the cold outside air. In turn, you’ll notice the appearance of damp areas and mould in your home, which is a health risk for you and your family.

Sometimes, for less deteriorated guttering, it’s possible to simply re-seal it, making it watertight once again. However, in most cases, for long term cost benefits and to rid yourself of these issues once and for all, we recommend removing your Finlock and replacing it with modern uPVC alternatives.

Made from age-resistant, durable plastic and available in your choice of colour and style, these modern replacements will last for decades to come and offer improved performance, while also keeping your home warm and dry.

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.

Step 7

Step 7

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.

Step 8

Step 8

Finally we will clean up any mess, put all your rubbish into a heavy duty hippo waste bag which will be collected and then we leave your house looking stunning and the envy of your neighbours.
