How Finlock Removals can help your Warwickshire home

Finlock concrete guttering is often not just ineffective, it also can contribute to domestic health risks and high energy bills.

In post-war Britain, Finlock guttering was a clever adaptation to a national steel shortage, but in the 80 years since the end of WWII, the concrete used has become porous and begun to fail. This means that it starts to absorb water, rather than channelling it away from your home.

The end result is what’s known as ‘cold bridging’, where your guttering forms a contact point between your walls and the cold outside, allowing heat to leach out of your home and causing damp spots and mould inside your home. Both damp and mould are health risks, and prolonged exposure can lead to health complications, not to mention the damage caused to the internal décor and structure of your home.

Our expert teams can carefully remove your aging, harmful Finlock guttering and replace it with your choice of uPVC alternative, removing these risks and improving the look and value of your home.

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.
