Services - Maintenance

Your roof has to put up with a lot of adverse weather conditions. Heavy rain, strong winds, glaring sunshine, ice and frost can all gradually wear away at your roof over the years. No matter how old your roof is, we can prevent costly damage to your roof and home by carrying out regular maintenance and surveys. With our experience and knowledge of roofing and roof maintenance, we can identify potential problems before they become worse and tailor a roof maintenance programme specific to your needs.

Gutter Cleaning

Cleaning your gutters is probably one of the most disliked jobs of homeowners, thus it is seldom carried out. Unfortunately, neglecting to clean out your gutters regularly can have some negative consequences on your roof and home. Your gutters can easily become clogged with debris such as leaves, branches, soil, bird nests, insect nests and litter – especially if you live in an area with a lot of trees and wildlife. The best time to clean your gutters is between the end of winter and the start of spring, after the trees have finished dropping their leaves.
Clogged guttering can have a big impact of the natural water drainage away from your home, potentially damaging soffit and fascia, possibly even leaking water inside. Water leaking into your home, even a small amount can cause damp and mould, which can affect the health of you and your family. In some unfortunate cases, dead animals can become caught in your guttering or downpipes, potentially causing bad smells and a health hazard.
Gutters are a common place for local wildlife such as birds and insects to build their nests – which may result in a large amount of pests such as wasps hanging around in your garden and home. Birds, on the other hand can defecate onto your windows and cars as well as make a lot of noise moving around in the guttering at night-time.
One of the services we offer is an extensive cleaning of your guttering – including removal of debris and using high-pressure water hoses to deep-clean the insides of your downpipes. We will also carry out any required repairs on old or damaged guttering.
