Gutter Cleaning and Repair
Gutter works is something we do a lot of it may be the gutter just needs a good clean, what a difference our customers notice when we have simply cleared any debris in the gutters. Leaking gutters can cause problems in other parts of the building, if ignored, problems which can be avoided if they are cleaned and maintained regularly.
Nowadays a lot of chimneys are obsolete, these chimneys soak up water and attract masonry bees, Masonry bees are on the increase, they burrow into the old mortar turning it into sand which weakens the structure of a chimney leaving it with very little support, this can be very dangerous especially in Scottish weather.
