We were recently on-site at our client’s East Yorkshire based location carrying out a large-scale roof exercise. Our client, a well-known kitchen manufacturer, was experiencing drainage problems, as well as an increase in internal leaks.
As with all projects, we visited site to conduct a full-scale assessment and determine the source of the problem in order to develop a course of action. During our examination, we discovered that the boundary gutters, valley gutters, and downpipes were blocked with timber-based waste materials that were escaping via the ducting of their blocked system. This was the source of the failing rainwater goods system, which was ultimately responsible for the building’s numerous internal leaks, as any water was being forced beneath the external framework and into the building.
Over a period of three days, our teams worked tirelessly to clean the waste from the roof and downpipes. We also cleared the ground floor, where a large quantity of waste had accumulated. The total amount of waste gathered and cleaned was approximately 30 tonnes.
Our clients were extremely satisfied with our work and are now in the process of developing an additional strategy to prevent further buildup.
