blocked gutters poole jan 2017

Hi this months job case study takes us to Ashley Cross in Poole Dorset,

Our client glossbrook had initially called us  to inspect his downpipe outlet to the side of the building which was three stories high30 ft plus. the gap was very narrow between the two properties so we used our telescopic cctv camera to inspect the drain which we was expecting it to be blocked hopper at the top of the  pipe work, but on inspection it transpired there was no blockage and that the issue was coming from the scupper outlet pipe work from the single ply roof being cut too short  and making the rainwater run down the back of the hopper and not into it. 

We came up with a solution of making a single ply apron from Protan Single ply membrane which we welded to the external end of the scupper pipe.  we fitted this aloongside a code 4lead cover flashing which we chased into the wall This allowed the rainwater to drain into the outlet correctly.  Once we had cleaned the moss from the wall we dismantled the scaffolding.

and another project had been completed by me and my team roofdoctors Dorset ,the Dorset branch of Aldersbrook roofing
