Finlock Gutter Removal and Replacement in Staffordshire

Finlock gutters, also known as concrete gutters, were fashionable in UK homes during the 1950s to 1970s, owing to steel shortages at the time. They were seen as the ideal replacement for iron gutters because they worked efficiently with cavity walls, which were also popular at the time.

However, many homeowners are unaware of the issues that concrete gutters cause. The problems experienced range from dampness and mould to thermal bridging and many more serious issues.

Improve your Staffordshire home with Finlock Removals

The concrete guttering removal and replacement process can be completed without the need for scaffolding. At Finlock Removals, we have invested heavily in providing our team with the best possible equipment. Our state-of-the-art Easy-dec equipment is a great asset, as it reduces the need for scaffolding and saves homeowners money. Depending on access and the extent of the work required, however, scaffolding may have to be used.

The Finlock team will arrive at your property in Staffordshire, with their ready-to-assemble Easy-dec equipment in hand. This access equipment can be assembled and de-constructed on the same day and complies with HSE rules and regulations.

Once the equipment has been assembled, the next step will be completed using a diamond-tipped cutting blade, which allows for more precise and accurate work. Because this process is loud and dusty, we always recommend getting professionals like us to do this work. We say this because when jobs like this are not done by professionals, it can cause even more problems to occur.

After the previous concrete gutters have been removed, our team will install your brand-new uPVC gutters, along with an EPS tray system to provide air circulation for your home’s roof space.

Then, once the new gutter has been installed, all the remaining mess will be cleaned up using our Hippo heavy-duty waste bags. Read more information about concrete gutter replacement here, as well as a full breakdown of the removal process.
