A shortage of timber after the Second World War meant that a wave of concrete gutters appeared on new homes throughout the North of England. These gutters are known as Finlock Gutters.
Unfortunately concrete is heavy and water permeable, meaning rainwater will never allow the gutter to dry out. If the gutter never dries out, nor does the plaster in your house, resulting in excessive amounts of damp.
Removing Finlock gutters requires a great deal of skill as it requires major building works to the property. Some companies claim to be able to remove this type of guttering, however a quick search on Google reveals that many of these companies don’t do a very good job, often causing terrible damage to people's property.
