What are concrete gutters?
Finlock gutters, also referred to as concrete gutters, are installed around a building to move rain away from the brickwork. Concrete gutters are most commonly found on homes that were built between the 1950s and 1970s.
Why were concrete gutters used?
Concrete gutters were a necessity over the UK; tens of thousands of homes have them installed to this day. They were used as a cheaper alternative to cast iron gutters in home building due to the lack of steel. Concrete gutters were believed to be lower maintenance guttering in the West Yorkshire area and a larger portion of the UK. Regrettably, it is now clear that concrete gutters are inefficient and potentially dangerous.
