Why Choose Us?

The gutters on your nursery, school or college building play a vital role, channelling water flow from roofs to protect your building and its foundations. When gutters become blocked with leaves and other debris, you run the risk of water overflowing, damage to the building and potential safety hazards.

Essential gutter and roof maintenance for safety and long-term cost savings

We understand the unique needs of educational institutions and are committed to providing reliable, safe, and high-quality gutter cleaning and maintenance services.

Ensuring your gutters and flat roofs receive proper attention is crucial for safeguarding staff and children, and for preventing more severe damage that could lead to greater costs. Gutter cleaning should be carried out at least once a year.

The importance of gutter maintenance

Neglecting gutter maintenance can result in dampness, foundation damage, and issues like rot and mould growth. Failure to maintain them also increases the risk of gutters becoming too heavy and pulling away from the building, posing safety hazards for children and staff.

The importance of roof maintenance

Additionally, regular cleaning and clearing of flat roofs—removing moss, mould, and other debris, including unexpected items like footballs—helps mitigate risks and ensures a safer environment for everyone.

At PP Gutters we’re committed to putting safety first

When is the right time to clean the school’s gutters?

Regular cleaning and maintenance

Like any property, your school building’s gutters should be cleaned and checked for damage at least once a year.

The summer break often proves to be the best time to carry out gutter and roof cleaning and maintenance. Our team are on stand-by to visit your setting this summer.

Alternatively, you might wish to schedule this essential work to be carried out at the end of autumn or the beginning of spring. It can be beneficial to wait until leaves have fallen so that gutters don’t become clogged up again too quickly.

Appointments to suit you

Our specialists offer appointment times to suit you to assess the size and scope of the work needed. This ensures your school receives an accurate quote for the work and that work is completed to schedule.

Work carried out during school breaks

We know how crucial it is to work around school term times to carry out essential maintenance tasks. That’s why we prioritise work on educational institutions during school breaks, such as the longer summer break of half terms.

Bespoke advice and flexible services

Education settings’ needs vary hugely. We’ll offer tailored advice on the best service and frequency for your setting, based on your school’s needs and location.

Advanced Methods

We use two methods to unblock, clear and clean school gutters and roof gullies:

  • A traditional approach using our hands and special brushes
  • A Sky Vac professional gutter cleaning machine with a high reach of up to 4 storeys

We use our cherry pickers where ladders are not suitable for health and safety purposes.

Detailed Inspections

Our team conducts thorough inspections to identify potential problems and recommend proactive maintenance solutions. Alongside clearing out and cleaning your gutters, we’ll always check the levelling of the gutters, too, to ensure there are no further issues with the water flow.

Prompt Repairs

We handle repairs of guttering, drainpipes, fascias, and soffits promptly to prevent water damage and maintain structural integrity.

Reports of Work Carried Out

We can provide full reports upon completion of work carried out, including before and after photos.

Contact us today so PP Gutters can:

  • Identify potential issues
  • Clearly discuss methods and processes
  • Outline clear timeframes
  • Provide a customised quote

Additional Services

While PP Gutters began as simply a gutter-cleaning service, we now offer extensive additional services to support the maintenance of your school buildings and site.

Roof cleaning

We’ll remove weeds and moss from your school building’s roof using appropriate cleaning methods. This improves the building’s appearance and protects it from damage caused by weeds and moss, which can lead to expensive roof repairs later on.

Soffit & Fascia Installation & Restoration

The soffits and fascias that sit below the guttering are also crucial elements of any building. We offer restoration services for soffits and fascias where they have not rotted beyond repair. When soffits and fascias need replacing, our professional team will install new high-quality products to improve the appearance and performance of your school buildings.

uPVC and Windows Softwashing

Prioritise health and safety with germ-free surfaces and let natural light into your school buildings with clear windows. Softwashing uses safe, eco-friendly, low-pressure solutions to remove mould, mildew, algae and grime without harming surfaces like uPVC windows, sidings, solar panels, skylights, soffits and fascias.

Full External Building Washing

We also use the gentle and effective softwashing method to clean school building surfaces and other aspects of your external site, such as paths, walls, awnings, conservatories and signage.

External Painting

Utilise our exterior painting service to improve the appearance of your school buildings. We clean, smooth and sand surfaces as necessary to prepare them for painting. We then ensure we use the right materials for the material of the surface.

Outdoor Ground Surface Cleaning

The school grounds are an important part of your setting’s overall appearance. Don’t let them let you down. We’ll assess the area to be cleaned and advise on the best methods, tools and solutions for the job.

Ivy Trimming

Older school buildings may have succumbed to ivy growth. Ivy can damage brickwork, woodwork and roof tiling. We’ll assess and advise on ivy growth when we inspect your buildings and can include the removal of ivy in your tailored quote.

We used PP gutters to clean and also advise on a repair. Zee and his team arrived promptly and were excellent. They cleaned all the gutters and took photos so we could see before and after. They were able to advise that what we thought needed a repair actually just needed cleaning which saved us money. They were also able to fix a Down pipe without charging over the odds. Would recommend to all.

Great professional local company and would definitely recommend. I had all my gutters replaced and fascia boards painted (2 day job). Thomas in the office was great at organising the work . Arranged the dates and times that suited me. The fitters Z and Mario are clearly very professional and did a fantastic job. They cleaned up after the works and did a few extras that I didn't ask for, namely straightening my boiler flue. What was really great is that I tried to get my neighbour to have some work carried out and they kindly offered a discount. My neighbour unfortunately pulled out but PP Gutters still honored a discount. Great company, great work, great customer service and most importantly great price. I will definitely be using again! All the works came with a long guarantee, thanks guys!
