FINLOCK & CONCRETE GUTTERS
Re-lining & repair specialists

A finlock & concrete gutter sits on top of a cavity wall, with the block visible & half hidden away within the structure of the house.

Guttercare can ensure a watertight barrier by using an aluminium finlock gutter liner machine.

Guttercare guarantee finlock gutter liners for 10 years and we have been the leading contractor for carrying out this work for local councils and housing associations throughout the area.
