We haven't yet met a property manager who likes flooding callouts... sound familiar?
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 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
