The Concrete Guttering Replacement Process
The concrete gutter replacement process first begins with the removal of the old Finlock concrete guttering. We will carefully assess and advise on the current condition of your guttering, including the state of the existing felt. If the guttering has been previously lined, we will remove this along with any faceplates, to make it easier for our teams to cut the concrete after.
If the property has an external soil pipe, we will take appropriate measures to ensure this doesn’t get in the way and make any adjustments to ensure it works well with the new guttering.
Existing downpipes are then removed, which can contain low-grade asbestos. Our fitters at Concrete Gutter Specialists are qualified experts in safely handling and disposing of this.
After this has been completed, the concrete blocks can be removed one at a time using a premium angle grinder with a diamond-tipped blade. Once they have finished there will be a level surface prepared for the replacement to be fitted.
