Roofing is a specialist service that should only be completed by a qualified roofer. This is because you need to know that the roofing services you are paying for will be completed to a professional standard.
Not only that, you need to be certain that anyone completing work on your roof is doing so in a safe way at all times. To ensure both of these things, it is recommended that you use a company that specialises not just in roofing, but in rope access roofing.
What Does Rope Access Mean?
Rope access is where a system of ropes and climbing equipment are used to allow professionals to work at heights. This includes roofing work such as inspections, fitting a new roof or carrying out maintenance and repairs.
The rope access system allows workers to carry out their job safely and with the flexibility to be able to move around the area easily. Roof access technicians are trained to work in this way and can carry out roofing work in locations that can be difficult to access using traditional methods such as scaffolding.
Why Rope Access Roofing is the Best Solution
There are many reasons why rope access is the best solution when it comes to having work completed on the roof of your property. The three main reasons why you should go for rope access roofing are to do with time, cost and impact:
- Time – the time it takes to set up a rope access system is much shorter than it would take to erect a scaffolding system. This means that the roofing work can start and finish in a much quicker timeframe. Once the work is finished, you don’t need to wait for the scaffolding to be dismantled and so your property will get back to business as usual quickly.
- Cost – having a scaffolding system built can be quite costly, particularly if you have a large property that is high and requires an extensive amount of scaffolding. The cost of the rope access system will be included in any quote you have for work completed by us and you won’t need to contact or pay an additional company to put up scaffolding. This can significantly reduce the cost of your roofing work.
- Impact – having scaffolding around your building can impact the functionality of the property. If you have commercial premises this is particularly important as you are likely to want to have minimal impact on visitors to the building. Rope access doesn’t impact the use of the property and so you can continue with business as usual while the work is completed. Rope access also has much less potential for causing damage to your building, including any paintwork.
