A safe and secure external building repair project helped this voluntary rescue team to stay operational thanks to extensive metal roof coating and gutter maintenance.
Every client facility is important – after all, it houses your business, your goods and, most of all, your staff. Yet there are some buildings we feel a particular pride to work on, and the property belonging to one of our latest clients, Holme Valley Mountain Rescue Team, was one of those.
Holme Valley MRT are based out of Emergency House in Marsden, West Yorkshire. From there, their volunteers respond, with police assistance, to search and rescue operations in the moors and hills as well as incidents in rural lowland areas. Therefore, it’s imperative their base is a building that is safe and secure, so they called our Cladding Coatings team in to help.
Installing secure systems for safe roof access
Naturally, Holme Valley MRT placed health and safety front of mind. In kind, we began first and foremost with establishing secure access systems on the site. This involved installing a scaffold access tower and edge protection, which allowed the work to be completed safely for both our team and the people in and around the building. It’s all part of our ongoing and unwavering commitment to health and safety (you can find out more about this here).
Once the safety access tower was in place, our team could begin to attend to the metal roof coating task in hand. This involved installing our 15-year Rust-Oleum Noxyde® system to the entire roof surface (excluding the gutters). We’re proud to be approved installers of this system, which we often favour thanks to its unrivalled waterproofing, anti-corrosion and rust prevention properties that make it ideal for metal roof coating on large, exposed areas.
Keeping gutters clean and wall cladding polished
Though the gutters weren’t treated with the Noxyde system, they did require particular attention. This was primarily due to the dirt and debris that had built up inside the gutters, meaning they required gutter cleaning internally. This made sure that the gutter system could perform properly and divert water away from the roof, removing the blockages that would otherwise cause damage. Once this was done, we sealed the internal gutter joints for added protection and performance.
The gutters were then prepared and painted, again using the 15-year Rust-Oleum Noxyde® system that had had proven success on the client’s roof. As well as for gutters and metal roof coating, we used the same system and our on site spraying application method to prepare and paint the downspouts, fascias, and cladding to the front and immediate sides of the building. This gave a completely cohesive finish for the property as whole, creating that vital impression of care, safety and security that is crucial for Holme Valley MRT.
We’re delighted to support a client doing such exceptional, and voluntary, work by making their building safe, secure, and like new again. Of course, for added peace of mind, our work was all backed by our minimum ten year guarantee, giving Holme Valley MRT complete assurance in the safety of their building and allowing them full focus on their life saving work.
