Factors to consider when choosing a Finlock Gutter Specialist

We’ve put together a handy list of what you should consider when selecting a Finlock Gutter removal company that you’re comfortable with and who will do a good job on your property. We’re not advocating any Finlock Removal Company over another as what feels comfortable to one person may not sit right with another. There are simply tips to help you select the right company for you.

Are they actually Specialists in Finlock Gutter Removal?

This is a specialist job and, as such, requires specialists to carry out the works. You want to opt for people who do this day in and day out rather than someone who is doing it for one of the first times and, essentially, figuring things out as they go. our concrete gutter specialists will have seen anything and everything under the sun and know how best to deal with it. Traders who dabble in a bit of everything won’t have this experience. We hope that they won’t take this as a personal slight against them, there are numerous services that we would say “get a quote from a local tradesman” but cutting your concrete gutters off and replacing them isn’t one of them.

A proper specialist Finlock removal company will have proper insurance. This really is something that’s worth double checking that they have in case 1.) They damage your property; 2.) They have an accident on your property. If they have an accident on your property and they don’t have the proper insurance then it becomes your problem. Keep in mind that anyone working on your gutter line is going to be working at heights unless you live in a bungalow. Suddenly, that cheaper quote could become a lot more costly. You want to ensure that they either have a full and comprehensive traders’ insurance or that they have separate policies for Public Liability (this will protect your home) and Worker’s Compensation (which will protect you if they have an accident).

Independent Reviews

Check online for independent reviews. We recommend using Google as the best platform for reviews as this seems to be the “go-to” for most consumers and every business is on here. What’s more, Google are very meticulous in checking the legitimacy of reviews and will also provide you with an overall “score” based on the reviews provided.


We fully appreciate that cost is a contributing factor, however, remember you get what you pay for. Anyone who is able to do is super- cheap is going to be cutting corners somewhere or not going to be sustainable as a business, so won’t be around if you have problems. All businesses should look to make some profit from their work, if they don’t then they won’t be around for long. Find a Finlock Gutter specialist that won’t cut corners. Some Finlock Gutter Removal Specialists have special offers on at times, so it’s worth having a chat with them. You can also get a feel for them as a company at this point

Proper Technique

Now, we’re not expecting you to know exactly what the technique is and stand there and monitor anyone doing work on your gutter line, however, there are steps that should be followed. Finlock Removals have outlined this on their website here. This is very much a tried and tested method so if anyone is doing something differently or skipping steps then we would advise on erring on the side of caution. As previously stated, this is, in all probability, your home is the biggest investment you have or will make so this isn’t a time to try and save on the pennies and sacrifice quality.

Proper Rubbish Disposal

Ensure that proper rubbish disposal is included in the price that you’ve been quoted. Some of the original downpipes contain low grade asbestos which isn’t something you should be alarmed about, however, this does need to be removed safely and properly.
