Finlock Gutters and Cavity Wall Insulation
Finlock gutters are also known as concrete gutters, which are common with houses that have had cavity wall insulation installed. Finlock gutters were added on to new build properties is the 1950’s and 1960’s.
Finlock gutters are made of concrete blocks which can range from 8 inches to 12 inches and are joined together using mortar.
Finlock gutters were designed to be maintenance free, however they are now starting to deteriorate due to the concrete being an unsuitable material for guttering.
Where any issues start with this type of guttering, on top of an already problematic cavity wall installation, the issues may appear with much more speed.
Main problems with finlock gutters are:
- Interior damp, which can lead to mould
- External or internal leaks
- External mould patches
- Water not flowing though the gutters properly
- Gutters starting to fall apart.
The only way to solve any of these problems happening is by having the finlock gutters taken away and replaced with a more suitable guttering system.
