Maintainance Matters - Gutter Cleaning Projects

Maintenance Matters – Gutter Cleaning Project  

As part of the SPAB (The Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings) Maintenance Week which is between 17th - 24th November, we had to wait for the Christmas trees to be put around Tyldesley for 2022. The works were completed between the 29th - 30th November.

For Tyldesley were offering a free gutter cleaning service for any interested properties on the high street and in the Conservation Area. 13 properties on Elliott Street signed up and had their gutters cleaned by local contractor, Parklands Ltd. The contractors also conducted a photographic roof survey and found no immediate issues with the roof slates, structure or gutters. They also surveyed three additional properties that were left out due to their poor condition and budget constraints. The works were completed by the end of November 2022 and were within the £5k budget. It is simple maintenance tasks like gutter cleaning which keep any building, new or old, in good condition and it is important that this is a regular upkeep.  

This will be happening again on 2023 we are aiming to target completion dates within Maintenance Week which is between 17th - 24th November.
