Finding the right building repair solutions for your property can be difficult or even costly. But there are things that you should take into consideration before accepting a quote. In this post, I will explain to you how Specialist Access Technicians can offer you cost effective solutions to your building repair requirements.
To make an informed decision about accepting quotes from a building maintenance company, you should start with the most important part. What type of access is required to reach the location in which repairs are required. This is often very underestimated.
I have listed three of the most utilized methods for accessing areas which are located at height:
- Rope Access
- Cherry Pickers
Each of these access methods have their own merits and some will be more preferential over the other for specific work types.
For example, complete stonework repairs will require scaffolding rather than rope access or cherry pickers. However, for mortar work, sealing, minor stonework repairs, rope access would be more viable and cost-effective solution.
Building Repair Solutions for You!
Choosing the right solution for your property or building will depend on the work that is required. This is often the costliest part of the job, which is gaining access to the area requiring repairs.
When looking to have building repairs done on your property, here are some things (but not exhaustive) to consider before approaching a building maintenance company.
- Type of repair work required
- Location of work on or around property
- Staff working times and noise interference
- Ground footprint
- Permit and permission requirements
- Restricted access
- Foot and vehicle traffic
Each contracting company that provides access methods for each of the three types mentioned above will advocate the benefits to the client. And rightly so! Business is business! But our aim at Specialist Access Technicians is to provide our clients with cost effective solutions to their requirements.
