Over the years we have found that in almost all circumstances there is nothing more effective than a pre-emptive strategy towards ongoing planned maintenance for the long-term protection of your property.
There will always be instances where a major event is responsible for the damage to or deterioration of a building or structure, but these will not account for even a fraction of those where it can be attributed to long-term neglect or a lack of strategy and investment into the planned maintenance and upkeep of the property. We consider ourselves to be industry experts in offering advice on how to achieve this.
One of the single biggest causes of structural and problematic damage to any property is the ingress of water to any places it should be, often caused by slow and un-noticed deterioration of a joint, seam, seal or covering which has been ignored or neglected. One of the biggest challenges to estates or property managers is identifying these defects as they occur to prevent the end result.
STS Group is currently contracted to carry out planned cyclical maintenance works to dozens of clients on a wide range of building and structure types right across the UK.
Annual stone and façade cleaning using specialist DOFF and TORC machines is a hugely cost-effective way of protecting stonework from the impact of traffic film build up and subsequent damage of spalling stonework. It really helps with aesthetics too! With our skills in finding financially practical solutions to complex and challenging access problems, we are ideally suited to deliver your cyclical planned maintenance solution.
On a more basic but equally important level, we regularly carry out quarterly or biannual gutter cleaning to prevent the blockage of rainwater dispersing systems and downpipes, the impact of which is almost always problematic and damaging water ingress leading to vastly more significant expense and inconvenience for the remedial work required to rectify the issue.
