Finlock Concrete Gutter Removal




Finlock Concrete Gutter Removal,

We have always traded as SF Roofing for over 32 years and we are not a Phoenix company who send out leaflets based on, to be frank LIES.

OFFICE 03334565202 / 01373825573  OR  MOBILE 07836692394 As a guide you should pay no more than £110.00p Plus VAT per mtr for these works plus scaffold of course which on a average house front and back is approx £500.00 PLUS VAT

We fully use dust supression during our works to follow Health & Safety advice. It is not of course completely dust free but it cuts it down by quite a large percent. We care some dont.

The most important advice is DONT fit linings as they DO NOT WORK.

Please be aware that if you have attached gutters to adjacent houses it is most important to inform the neighbours in writing of the intention of works, (PARTY WALL ACT).This is of the most importance and is required by law.

We carefully cut off existing concrete gutter sections being very carefull not to use force removing them, as can be seen in some company videos where extreme force is used, using the windows to lever on etc, once removed we fit a treated timber flush to the cut off Finlocks and wall and are fixed using concrete fixing bolts to a depth of 150mm this guarantees no future movement and will carry the tile load etc. We DO NOT EXTEND RAFTER LEGS AS THIS IN OUR OPINION IS NOT SUITABLE FOR THE HEAVY LOADS OVER TIME BEARING DOWN ON A FEW NAILS HOLDING THE EXTENDED LEGS.

We then fix all plastics please note you will see no nails apart from box ends, it does not have to look riveted with nails everywhere. We then fit your new gutters.

Please note we only fit DEEPFLOW GUTTERS, which carry nearly twice as much water than standard 4" gutters (WHICH SHOULD NEVER BE FITTED).

 Finlock gutters are made from concrete sections and shaped concrete liners. (Please check diagram below)There are thousands and thousands of houses all over the country that have them fitted. If you are unlucky to own a house that has them fitted then you are fully aware of the problems with them, mainly leaking which can seep into the rooms. You may also have black stains around the walls near the ceiling which is called cold bridging.


You may have already spent hundreds of pounds repairing them, which will buy you time but it wont cure the problem as normally houses with these are normally in a row, and maybe the house each side will not maintain theirs which makes any repair to yours pointless.

 So why put up with it, once there gone, there gone FOREVER, and your house will look like it should, new upvc fascias and gutters, so you dont even need to paint in the future. And of course the black marks on the internal walls can be cleaned and will never return.

There are pictures in our gallery section showing before removal and after there gone, we will be adding more soon.

The process of the removal of the concrete finlock guttering is simple if carried out correctly. It's not a long procedure (approximately two days) per household. But there are certain issues that need to be addressed, the first being safety.
The removal of concrete finlock guttering is heavy, dirty and if not carried out by a specialist team of professionals could be dangerous due to the large sections of concrete that have to be taken away.Safety First.jpgWe DONT use this...

Thats why S. F. Roofing won't cut corners or take chances. We only employ fully insured, certified and trusted tradesmen to erect a safe full 5 board  with handrails scaffold, unlike other so called companies who use aluminium quickform or easydeck platforms MAX 600 Kg, LIKE ABOVE PHOTO,  which are what they say (quick and easy) but are not suited to removal of concrete finlock guttering, so don't take the chance and let it be your property that somebody gets hurt!

How would you feel going up and inspecting the work on that......Ladders down, planks on van, got your money gone.

Please take note that if you allow a tradesman to use scaffold that is not best suited you will be liable for any claims etc.
