“A permanent solution for concrete gutters”
Finlock Gutters
Why there are problems with these types of gutters:
Concrete was far from ideal as a guttering material but it was cheap and readily available and huge numbers of houses were built between the 50s and the 70s using this form of construction. Unfortunately, the result was large scale failure of the guttering due to cracking and settling of the concrete blocks with associated water penetration and leakage to the inside and outside of the property.
Finlock gutters, or concrete gutters, were designed in the 1950s as a low cost guttering solution on post war properties at a time when steel was in very short supply.
Worse still, the inherent properties of concrete allowed thermal and moisture bridges to be formed between the outside and the inside of properties and into the wall cavity, creating damp and condensation problems inside the property as well as flooding and leaking of gutters and staining of external walls.
There are still many properties around with Finlock gutters and it is unusual to find any in good condition.
Among the many problems associated with these types of gutters are:
Flooding and leakage due to the inadequate number of outlets.
Susceptibility to blockage or flooding because they were generally laid level rather than gently sloping.
Settlement of the gutter sections over time which worsens the problem and can also open up joints which then start to leak.
Damp and water damage on the inside of buildings caused by fracturing of the brickwork when gutter settlement has occurred.
Old, failed repairs or botched repairs involving lining or sealing with asphalt or similar, which have worsened the problem.
Problems associated with window replacement when the window installers have not realised that the gutters acted as lintels.
Internal condensation problems because the gutter sections bridge the tops of cavity walls.
The remedy in most cases is either removal or relining.
