DPR Roofing has recently completed guttering clearance works for Speedy Hire in Leeds after the heavy summer rain storms caused major problems at their site. Speedy is the UK’s leading tools, equipment and plant hire services company, operating across the construction, infrastructure and industrial markets.

After Yorkshire saw just under one month’s rainfall in 24 hours, the company called on DPR’s emergency team after water flooded into their office area, ruining work and their computers in the process.

After arriving on site within just a few hours, it became obvious the problem was caused by blocked gutters, which looked like they had never been cleaned. The team went to work quickly clearing the problem area, however advised that the site, which is over 70m in length could do with a full gutter clearance which would take around four days to complete and that this clearance would not prevent it from happening again should another heavy downpour occur.

After another heavy amount of rain a few days after, the problem returned again, as DPR predicted, and the team were called out again to carry out emergency works once more. This time however it was agreed that the whole site would need to be cleared from debris in their gutters.

As DPR Roofers have mentioned before, guttering is often neglected until a problem of this magnitude occurs which can be very expensive. We offer a gutter clearance service for many commercial clients which will help to prevent problems of the nature occurring on a regular basis.
