Maintaining and repairing your rainwater guttering and pipework is essential property maintenance for domestic and commercial properties. Guttering that is defective can cause may damp problems to your building structure. Guttering that is defective can cause rainwater to run down the outside of the property walls that will eventually cause structural, damp, and mould problems. Keeping your guttering well maintained and in a good state of repair will eliminate many of these problems.

Gutter Repairs in Cambridgeshire

We have our own compact scaffold/access towers to be able to undertake any gutter repair work efficiently and safely.

A scaffold tower is a temporary structure used in construction, maintenance, or repair projects. It provides a safe and stable platform for workers to access high areas.
These towers can be easily assembled and disassembled, making them a flexible and convenient solution for working at height. Under the guides by the Health and Safety executive a scaffold/access tower is a more favourable choice in carrying out gutter repair work.

Gutter Maintenance and repairs

Gutters play a crucial role in maintaining the integrity of a building's structure. They collect and channel rainwater away from the roof and foundation, preventing water damage and leaks. Over time, gutters can become clogged with debris like leaves, twigs, and dirt, which can hinder proper water flow. This can lead to overflowing gutters, water seepage, and even structural damage.
Gutter repairs involve cleaning, unclogging, and fixing any issues that may affect the functionality of the gutters. Regular maintenance, including gutter cleaning, can help identify potential problems early on and prevent more significant repairs or replacements in the future.

Some common gutter repairs include:

  1. Cleaning: Removing debris from gutters and downspouts to ensure proper water flow.
  2. Repairing leaks: Fixing any leaks or holes in the gutters to prevent water from seeping onto the building's exterior or foundation.
  3. Realigning: Adjusting gutter sections that are sagging or improperly positioned to ensure water flows in the right direction.
  4. Replacing damaged sections: Removing and replacing gutter sections and joints that are severely damaged or leaking.

Safe use of access towers compared to a ladder in gutter repairs

When it comes to working at height, it is essential to use safe and secure equipment to prevent falls and accidents. Two popular options for accessing high places such as gutters are access towers and ladders. However, access towers have some significant advantages over ladders in terms of safety.
Access towers are free-standing structures that provide a stable and secure platform for working at height. They offer greater stability and a larger work platform than ladders, which makes them safer to use. Access towers come in different sizes and configurations, allowing them to be used for various types of jobs. They are also usually made from lightweight aluminium, making them easy to move and erect.
On the other hand, ladders can be unstable and wobbly, especially when used on uneven ground or on scaffolding. They also require a stable surface to lean against, which can be problematic when working on uneven terrain. Additionally, ladders do not provide a stable platform to work from, so workers need to balance their weight and tools while working. Ladders are also notorious for being a leading cause of workplace accidents, mostly when they are not used properly.
In summary, using access towers over ladders is a safer option when working at height. Access towers offer a larger, stable platform to work from and do not require a stable surface to lean against, making them adaptable to different types of terrain.
