Finlock gutter replacements Crawley
Many home owners in the Crawley area have what are known as “Finlock” gutters, which are concrete gutters. These are most commonly found on properties built between 1950 and 1979, as concrete was a popular choice due to its perceived longevity and minimal maintenance requirements.
Problems with Finlock guttering
As time has moved on, more and more Crawley home owners are realising that Finlock gutters can actually be quite problematic, letting water into the inside of their house, damaging the exterior brickwork and even causing roofs to start sagging into the window frames. If you’re a Crawley home owner and any of this sounds like a problem you’re having, one option you could choose is a temporary solution which involves lining the gutters and overcladding the existing Finlock gutters with UPVC.
The best solution for Finlock gutter replacement
However, this won’t solve the problem in the long term, so the best solution is to opt for complete Finlock gutter replacements. The process of Finlock gutter replacement needs to be carried out by an expert roofer, as it will involve removal of the bottom layer of roof tiles and extension of the roof joists, in order to install the new UPVC guttering system. However, once new soffits, fascias and guttering have been installed, you’ll find that your Crawley house no longer has problems of water ingress caused by your Finlock guttering.
