UK Gutter Maintenance

08 May 2012

Paul and Kathy Blair, husband and wife and co-owners of UK Gutter Maintenance Ltd were
delighted when the opportunity presented itself in the Spring of 2008 to form their own specialist gutter cleaning company and have never looked back since.

Despite the economic doom and gloom theirs is a true success story. Between them the couple have over forty years experience working within specialised service industries, over ten of which have been dedicated to gutter cleaning activities.

Both Paul and Kathy have a passionate belief in what their company stands for and a refreshingly uncomplicated common sense approach to managing their business. Their work ethic is based on teamwork and by placing a greater reliance and responsibility on those who work with them they have succeeded in achieving a consistently high and personal level of service that they believe is unrivalled in the industry.

Kathy Blair Managing Director says in an industry where the end product invariably cannot be seen it is of paramount importance that clients have confidence in the company they choose to employ. We instil that confidence and trust by focusing on all aspects of our performance. With our teams combined and varied knowledge we have a unique understanding and empathy with what our clients expect from us and are committed to meeting those expectations by ensuring that all jobs are done properly and to the complete satisfaction of our customers.

Placing utmost importance on Health and Safety the couple chose to appoint a Health and Safety Manager, Mr Martin Young whose sole responsibility is to ensure that all works are undertaken in a safe manner. Martin has had a long and varied career, primarily within the engineering sector and five years ago took the decision to obtain a NEBOSH qualification and focus on Health and Safety.Martin’s particular expertise lies in working at height and he has proven to be an invaluable asset to the company.

A flexible and complete service Kathy Blair states The structure and flexibility of UK Gutter Maintenance means that we are able to work throughout the country in just about any location, at relatively short notice.
We also offer an emergency call-out service for our national clients and work for several national help desks on a call-out basis.. This is proving to be an invaluable service and as far as we are aware UK Gutter Maintenance Ltd is the only company in the UK offering this type of service on such a major scale.

Due to the nature of these types of works, in most cases leaks are experienced inside the building and temporary repairs are required to prevent a further ingress of water. Inevitably we find that these leaks are not necessarily a gutter maintenance problem but could also be caused by defective areas on the roofs.
 
In some instances the gutter and roof defects we encounter need a permanent long term solution. This has resulted in our gutter cleaning service and skills extending to incorporate the treatment of leaking joints and badly corroded gutters as well as undertaking full roofing and skylight repairs, including the treatment of cut edge corrosion.

Consequently over the years our experience and expertise has evolved which now enables us to offer a complete gutter and roof maintenance service. This gives the Company the distinct commercial advantage of being able to offer a truly complete package.

All teams are supplied with liveried 16.5 m boom vans as a standard piece of access equipment and are fully equipped with specialist safety equipment, particularly for undertaking works on fragile roofs or where skylights are present.
Additional equipment is resourced to suit each individual task and the appropriate team members are deployed to deliver a bespoke service to clients individual requirements.
 
Communication is seen as key to the companys ongoing success and clients are kept fully informed of progress before, during and upon completion of works. Before and after digital photographs of all works are always provided together with reports upon on any major defects found or areas of concern.

Wherever possible, should there be any minor defects found these are carried out before leaving the site.

Paul Blair states that our clients acknowledge that this procedure is very effective and the provision of photographs is the only way that they can actually see that the work has been carried out. Unfortunately in our industry there are too many people that do not do the work they have been brought in to do.

There have been many occasions when we have surveyed a job only to fi nd that the company last
employed to do the gutter clean or repair work had not done it properly, if at all.

UK Gutter Maintenance Ltd has a reputation for honesty and trustworthiness and an ever growing and loyal client list with household names such as Interserve FM, FES FM, Facilities Services Group, ATS Euromaster, Carpetright, Topps Tiles, C Brewers & sons and The Open University to name but a few.

Kathy says we are in the enviable position of clients actually wanting UK Gutter Maintenance Ltd to work for them. We have never been busier and for Paul and I owning our own company and being in control of our own destiny is the best thing that could have happened to us. Our business has been built on client relationships and our motivation and success lies in the fact that we personally know the majority of people we work for and for whom we deliver a high level of service which represents value for money, professionally, effi ciently and safely.
