Hi

I have concrete gutteting as shown in photo - think it is called finlock although may be wrong

I have no major issues with it, but a couple of small areas of damp inside level with the guttering - so think it could probably do with being resealed/relined

I have done lots of research and most people seem to say about having it removed and replaced with UPVC which I cannot afford (or really want) to do

Any suggestions on good DIY products I can use to reline or repaint inside it to make sure it is watertight and will last a few more years at least

You can Decothane it, or put a couple of layers of felt in. Both are really in need of professional application though. Prep is all. There are lining kits made for Finloc, but only as good as the installers, who all appear to be dire from what i've seen. The EPDM boys will be along shortly to advise its the only course of action and will last a million years. :mrgreen:

There is a product made by Everbuild called Aquapol....its a fibreglass/bitumen type product that will make light work of your job, its about £50 for a 5 litre tin but worth every penny.
