How Finlock Removals can help your Suffolk home

When it was installed, Finlock guttering was a crafty solution to the UK’s post-war steel shortage. But overtime, the concrete becomes old and porous. It begins to absorb water and no longer channels it effectively, leading to cold-bridging and heat loss in your property as well as damp and mould.

At Finlock Removals, we take a unique approach to every property. We’ll remove your old Finlock guttering, tidy any remnants of the concrete and fit new uPVC guttering which ensures proper water channelling and solves cold-bridging and damp issues.

We employ teams of guttering specialists across England and Wales who take pride in their high levels of craftsmanship and are backed by a friendly customer support team at our centrally-located HQ. Our specialists can fit a range of different styles and colours and use inobtrusive Easi-dec access systems to reach their working heights without the need to charge customers for scaffolding.

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.
