Gutters – every building has them and they serve an
important purpose so don’t neglect them.
We’re yet to meet a property manager that enjoys getting frantic phone calls about internal leaks from overflowing gutters. If you manage or care for the property, take it from us – gutters, sumps and rain-heads on commercial roofs get overlooked and reactive maintenance can be costly.
If your building has internal parapet channels or valleys you should be extra vigilant – these are prime locations for birds (dead and alive) to reside and block the flow. Regular checking and cleaning is much more cost-effective than reactive repairs and cleaning.
We use drone technology for roof and gutter inspections
Access to roofs is fundamentally dangerous so we invested in a drone to mitigate the need to access a roof every time we need to conduct an inspection.
Rain heads and Sumps
Rain heads and sumps are traps for a good reason, and they should be top of the list for maintenance. Recommended best practice is to check them every 3 months
We recommend that every property manager schedules a quarterly or bi-annual gutter inspection, we’re happy to suggest a frequency determined by the location, height and environment your roof is in. Low-level roofs in leafy business parks will need more frequent checking than a high rise building or a high stud large warehouse roof in a new development.
A routine 20-minute check and spot clean is a cost-effective way to keep on top of gutter problems.
We can reach up to 2 levels from the ground using high reach vacuum equipment. If this can’t be done on your building, we have trained operators with all the necessary equipment to work safely on your roof.
