Finlock Guttering

Astonishingly, houses with finlock gutters are all over the UK, including in Northamptonshire. The guttering around your home is one important part of protecting it from the elements. Water tends to cause damage if not drained away. Finlock gutters can have serious effects on your home if they are no longer effectively lined or leak. Finlock gutters within Northamptonshire are very rare, but there are still tens of thousands of houses in the UK that are still using them. It is safer and cheaper to look for a concrete gutter replacement in Northamptonshire, rather than opt for gutter repairs. If water damages your home, then it could cost thousands of pounds to repair.

What issues do concrete gutters cause?

Finlock guttering is not a long-term solution for almost all homes in the UK. The reason concrete guttering was used is concrete was more cost-effective and readily available, compared to metal. If damp gets into the property, the superficial damage can be decorated over, but it doesn’t fix the underlying problem.

Concrete Lining

If you are looking at companies that offer Gutter Repairs in Northamptonshire, you could line the concrete gutters with different materials that would help for a time, but you will need replacing sooner rather than later. Lead, for example, is a versatile and soft material that has a high level of corrosive resistance to water. The bigger issue with lead is its toxicity, and it will only remain effective for up to 20 years.

What are the advantages of replacing concrete gutters?

Concrete gutter removal will eventually become unavoidable. Concrete Gutters around West Midlands will need to be upgraded to a more resilient material. UPVC for example is a material that is both lighter and watertight. UPVC is also cheaper to repair. UPVC is a more attractive material to look at, concrete has a cold grey colour that has a negative effect on the beauty of your home. If you need to replace your windows, concrete gutters will most likely be too heavy for the frames. Newer windows don’t come with the reinforcements necessary to stop the gutters from falling. which causes new windows to bow under the weight of the wet blocks of concrete.
