We were asked to attend site in Sheffield to replace some ridge tiles on the apex of the roof & replace various broken roof tiles as well a fit a new product called Hedgehog
With the help of our Leeds based partner Pro Clean we were able to complete this job on behalf of our client. The 30 residential apartment block had been suffering from damp from broken & blocked gutters. It is surrounded by established trees so leaves are a constant problem, it’s incredible to see how much damage & costs can result in poorly fitted & blocked gutters.
As well as repairing & cleaning the gutters we fitted a new product called hedgehog which is like a big pipe cleaner it has a brush outer with a wire core so we cut lengths of approximately 1 foot & fitting them at the top of the down pipe allows rain water to drain underneath the brushes but does not allow leaves and other debris into the downpipe, very cost effective at £12.00 per 4 metres with the additional costs of plastic clips fitted 2 per foot to keep the product in place the whole cost for 52 downpipes was approximately £ 75.00 +vat available at your local roofing company.
All this was completed in a day on site with our 24 metre Sky king access platform with 11 metres of outreach, the additional outreach this machine gave us was important as we could work around the entire building without the need to ask tenants to move their cars.
