When’s the best time for gutter maintenance as lockdown is eased?

It’s a general rule of thumb that preventive measures are much more effective than reactionary ones; this is true of most things, gutters included. An easy way to keep on top of your roof and gutter maintenance is to regularly have one of our teams of specialists take a look. They can clean, check and let you know of any issues that may arise, saving you from any unwelcome breakages and saving you money in the long run.

Staying on top of things

Understandably, as lockdown measures are easing and retail and industrial units are starting to see more traffic, the little jobs that needed seeing to during the lockdown lull have been put on the back burner to make room for more present, more current issues. However, what may start as a small job could quickly turn into something much bigger when it comes to gutters.

The longer issues are left, the greater the risk of damage spreading from the gutter to the rest of the building. Water damage is a common issue when it comes to poorly maintained roofs. This can lead to mould or damp, both of which are not only unsightly but can also be dangerous for the health of your employees and customers, potentially causing allergic reactions or even asthma attacks.

Following this, you may even begin to see structural issues, with prolonged water exposure causing problems you may not even be aware of, but also damaging the appearance of your building and company.

How we can help

Aiming to provide the most economical solution to your requirements, the best recommendation we have for gutter maintenance is to have them regularly checked and cleaned, leaving little room for potential issues to snowball into expensive repair bills.

We offer a variety of solutions, working with you to determine the best course of action for your current situation. You may find a national gutter cleaning contract may be the thing you need (you can find out more about these contracts here). The most significant advantage of a contract is that you no longer have to worry about the organisation factor that goes into maintenance. We’ll strive to make this a process that is as smooth as possible for everyone involved, keeping disruptions to your business to a minimum.

Our policy of regular communication between our business and our customers combined with ensuring the safety of everyone involved. Our two-man teams can guarantee that peace of mind so you can focus on what goes on inside your buildings instead of what’s happening above your head.

As the seasons start to look a bit more favourable and Britain begins to warm up (we can only hope), it’s currently the perfect time to book a routine maintenance service for a spell of dry weather.
