What Are The Common Finlock Gutter Problems?

Damp and mould

One of the most common problems to occur from poorly functioning Finlock gutters is dampness and mould. If your gutter is failing, then dampness will begin to appear in the upper corners of the upstairs rooms of your property that are adjacent to your concrete guttering. This will likely bleed through into your exterior brickwork also, showing up as damp patches. If left unmonitored, the damp caused could transform into a harmful mould.

External Gutter Leaks

Some problems are more easily noticed than others. External gutters are some of the more obvious problems to spot, as the gutters can start to steadily drip. In this leakage scenario, your gutters have failed, and the situation is likely to deteriorate rapidly from this moment forwards.

Cold/Thermal Bridging

Cold / thermal bridging describes when a cold material meets a warmer one, resulting in the cooling down of the warmer material. This process can be highly damaging in all weather conditions and can reduce the energy and insulation efficiency of your homes. When such problems arise, it can cause your wallpaper to peel away from the top of your wall, due to condensation.

Solutions?

Concrete Finlock Gutter Removal

Concrete Finlock gutter removal is the more intensive of the two solutions proposed, and as a result, has the most long-lasting effect. Once successfully removed, your new gutters will stop further leaks and dampness caused by defective joints and grouting. Other benefits include improved thermal efficiency and the reduced risk of condensation.

Concrete Gutter Lining

When water is left in the guttering instead of being carried away from the property it can have many issues. For example, it can cause problems for the fabric of the building and increase the risk of mould and damp. Both of which can be hazardous for your health and your home.

    We had our gutters lined by Finlock Removals, they were very professional and we aren’t experiencing problems anymore. If we decide to get them removed we will go back to Finlock Removals.

    Mr and Mrs Rees | Surrey

    We were looking at selling our property but found that buyers were trying to haggle money off because our property had concrete gutters. We decided to get them removed and replaced with upvc and we got our asking price.

    Mr and Mrs Barker | Plymouth

    Our concrete gutters were leaking, we’d had them lined by another company but apparently that counted for nothing. We decided to get them removed by Finlock Removals and haven’t looked back
