Church Roof Gutter Repairs in Balsall Heath - IRM Roofing

As approved Plygene installers in Birmingham, IRM Roofing was contracted to install a high level Plygene gutter liner in Balsall Heath for the Parish of Saint John the Evangelist and Saint Martin de Porres Church.

The church's existing gutters were leaking, causing the brickwork to errode and the water to ingress and rot the internal wooden panels. Plus the church gutters were small and difficult to access, and time was tight with any roofing works needing to be completed before the Christmas break to lessen disruption for the upcoming festival. So we dispatched a team of three of our Walsall Plygene installers to carry out the church roof gutter repairs in Balsall Heath.

The one week project included installing the Plygene gutter liner by H.D. Sharman to the 75 linear metres long church roof gutter, together with four extra downpipes to allow the gutter to become more free flowing. And because of the difficult to access corner areas, much of the welding took place on the scaffold prior to installation.

Below are photos from the project. If you require industrial gutter repairs in Balsall Heath or church roof repairs in Birmingham then please contact IRM Roofing in Walsall. We serve commercial customers all over the West Midlands.
