IRM Roofing was instructed to install Plygene Gutterline to a warehouse in Redditch, for a company that supplies pneumatic products. The existing gutters were corroded and leaking, so we recommended Plygene Gutterline (by HD Sharman) as an ideal solution because it comes with a 25 year product guarantee and is the only BBA approved gutter lining system specifically engineered to restore and preserve gutter performance.
We dispatched two of our specialist Plygene installers to Redditch over a two week period to carry out the installation to the rectangular shaped warehouse, which utilised one continuous gutter to four sides - eaves and hip ends, 45m by 20m. The project was visited by an HD Sharman representative before, during and on completion of the works.
