Concrete Guttering Replacement
WeatherTech roofing replace unsightly concrete guttering. The technical name for concrete gutters is Finlock gutters.
Installed during the 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s they carried out two functions of closing the cavity at the top of the brickwork and providing a maintenance free (or so they thought at the time) gutter system.
The gutters comprise of units that vary in length between 200 and 600 mm and either the joints have been sealed with bitumen or a similar substance or the gutters are lined, often with torch on mineral felt.
In some installations the units are formed into a lintel over the window openings by filling the lintel trough with concrete. The other benefit of this type of construction was of course that the properties did not need fascias or soffits and so the whole design was meant to be maintenance free whilst being cheap to build.
However over time frost, heat, moss and corrosive dirt causes Finlock gutters to fail. When they fail there is only one answer remove and replace with a PVC Eu system.
Finlock gutters tend to be very unsightly, so full replacement does uplift the look of your property.
At WeatherTech we specialise in this type of replacement, and do so to a high standard.
