Whatever your problem, our gutter cleaning, replacement and lining services will provide a cost effective solution to protect your building and save you money.
It’s surprising how often this simple task is not carried out until there is a visible problem. Gutter cleaning alleviates gutter problems. Proactive maintenance ensures gutters are clear of debris and continue to allow rainwater to run away as originally intended, without restrictions. Regular gutter cleaning helps prevent costly repairs and potential stock / product damage.
When gutter repairs are no longer a viable option, we can provide gutter replacement in a choice of materials; uPVC, colour coated pressed metal or galvanised steel. Our knowledgeable managers will advise on the best solution.
Another option is to over-lay your existing gutters with a gutter re-lining system. We use a number of gutter re-lining systems including Plygene and Uni-fold. Re-lining systems allow the existing gutter to remain insitu, and with no dismantling works internal disturbance is kept to a minimum.
Believe it or not industrial roofs and gutters are also a breeding ground for wildlife, particularly Herring Gulls. Herring Gulls create nests on roofs which are not only unsightly and unhygienic but can also cause superficial damage to the roof covering. This can also lead to gutters being filled up with debris and pools of water building up. Unfortunately Herring Gulls nest in colonies and once established return to the same nesting site year upon year so this problem is unlikely to resolve itself.
We are registered with the Environment Agency and licenced to take, damage or destroy the nests or eggs of Herring Gulls.
However, our preferred method to controlling nuisance gull populations is regular inspection of the affected roof area, when eggs are discovered they can be removed and substituted with plastic imitation eggs.
Note: Scientific studies have shown that urban gulls will accept plastic imitation eggs in place of their own in the nest.
Imitation eggs have a higher success rate of controlling gull populations than traditional methods, they reduce the number of hatchlings and future recruits, reducing the gull populations in the long term in an environmentally friendly and humane way.
