Finlock guttering – new lining

Filed under: Current Projects — admin @ 3:05 pm

A customer contacted us to discuss what options they had to add some extra life to their old finlock guttering. Finlock guttering was popular in the 60s and while the principal was sound the problems started to become evident when they guttering started to suffer from water ingression.

The most drastic approach to adding further life to finlock guttering is to cut the guttering off and replace with more modern substitutes. However the drastic action isn’t the only solution.

On this project in Cambridge we have used lead to line the guttering adding years on to re it’s lifetime. Another option is to add a liquid roofing membrane and adhere it to the Finlock guttering. This particular guttering wasn’t suitable as it had already had bitumen paint covering the concrete.
