Did you guess what was in our picture?

Following our post to social media, we’ve had many enquires as to what the picture is. To answer your question, they were bespoke cast iron brackets. These we fabricated for use on timber gutters to replace the original ones at customer’s period property.

I think you’ll agree, the finished job looked brilliant. Take a look for yourself

Traditional Timber Guttering Installation

Timber gutter installations can add a touch of character and detailing that many properties have unfortunately lost over the years. Although, many opt for plastic alternatives this can go against the feel and heritage of period properties.

Our timber gutters have a unique mix of traditional detailing and modern construction to give you that period character look but with longevity you would expect from plastic alternatives.

We always use the best products when replacing wooden guttering. That’s why we have opted for pressure, and chemically treated tanalised timber. This provides a 15 year protection against rot and degradation. On top of this all joints, stop-ends and outlets are double sealed then reinforced with fibreglass or specialist flexible sealant to prevent the ingress of water, giving a further layer of protection.

This allows for a beautiful finish as seen on our next image.

Timber Guttering Repairs

You may have noticed a water leakage whenever it rains. This is because as timber gutters age, water can gather and eventually penetrate through the old seal or jointing compound. These issues can be hard to spot if the escaping water isnโ€™t tracking directly to the exterior of the gutter, but instead tracking into the property. However, they can be identified by damp patches on the brick work around the gutter level or even internally by bubbling or mouldy plaster work. Addressing these problems early before they get any worse is always the best solution.

Here at Sheffield Gutter Services we are always happy to help. Whether its guttering repairs, leaky joints or a brand new installation you are after, we do it all.

If your having problems with guttering don’t let them get worse. Give us a call or send us a message

We Can’t be the Only Ones Who’ve Noticed This? ๐Ÿ‘

With everyone pulling together and adhering to the national lock-down, we’ve all been spending an unusually large amount of time at home…. It get you thinking…

Having spent the last month or so primarily at home, its only now we’ve realised what areas of our homes are starting to require a it of attention. I know I certainly have! Spending more time at home that ever before working, relaxing, teaching, living, eating, even socialising with video calls. The list of home improvements you thought you had well under control, actually turns out to be a list as long as your arm ๐Ÿ˜‚

It looks like this could be our new ‘normal’ so why don’t you make the most of your home and address those long neglected areas ready for the good weather that’s heading our way. Here at Sheffield Gutter Service we though it might be nice to give you some hit & tips to help you get the shine back in your home.

Does your Conservatory Need Cleaning?

conservatory

Its the one area of our homes that gets little use during those cold and damp winter months. The poor weather, lack of heating and out little feathery friends tend to take there tole and leave our conservatories looking tired, weathered and uninviting. Make the most of your home and get your conservatory gleaming again.

Some older uPVC frame and roof panels can lose their lustre and shine because of a significant build-up of dirt and grime on their surface.

If this scenario sounds familiar, don’t worry we’ve put together a few hints and tips using easy to find house hold ingredients to help you get back the sparkle back in your home.

We only use specialist uPVC cleaning and renovation products but not every one has these kinds of products laying around under the kitchen sink

ย 

How to clean and whiten Conservatory and Window Frames

  • Mix 1 part vinegar with 4 parts hot water and pour the mixture into a spray bottle, If you don’t have one, a bowl and a sponge works just fine.
  • Spray or wipe the solution on to the uPVC and leave it to stand for a good 10 minutes.
  • Use a clean, dry and smooth cloth to wipe down and remove any excess liquid.

If this doesn’t work, baby wipes are great for delicate cleaning jobs and will clean most things.

Don’t use abrasive cleaning solutions because they will scratch the top layer of the uPVC and permanently remove the ‘shiny’ or ‘glossy’ finish.

If you find that this is not strong enough to remove a build-up of dirt, dead insects, cobwebs and grime; you may want to use one of the specialist uPVC cleaning product,

 

Things to avoid when cleaning your Conservatory and Window Frames

  • Applying too much pressure when cleaning the uPVC
  • Bleach
  • Methylated spirits
  • Nail varnish remover
  • WD40
  • White spirits
  • Wire wool or iron wool
  • Scouring pads

With plenty of elbow grease, a little time and possibly even a head for heights (to get those hard to reach bits) you’ll find your conservatory and uPVC window frames looking bright and sparkly once again ready to enjoy the sunny days.

If this all sounds a bit to much like hard work and you don’t like the look of those old dodgy step ladders at the back of the garage or garden shed…

Never fear Sheffield Gutter Service is here!

We don’t just do gutter cleaning, we also offer conservatory cleaning, Upvc restoration, soffit and fascia cleaning, driveway and patio pressure washing, just to mention a few.

The Week Following VE Weekend ๐Ÿ˜Š

We Hope you enjoyed VE Weekend !ย 

Last week the country celebrated Victory in Europe day. A day that has a special meaning to us all.ย  This troublesome little virus has certainly caused a big shake. With all the uncertainty flying about on the TV, News and social media it was nice to see families sat outside, enjoying the sunshine, music and celebrations. Even in these crazy times people took the time and effort to recognise what we can all achieve when we work together as a nation. All whilst maintaining social distancing of course.

As restrictions lower and the country looks at getting up and running, here at Sheffield Gutter Services we understand the importance everyone has to play to over come this unexpected threat to our nations way of life. We maintain the highest caution, ensuring contactless gutter cleans and payment options for all our customers

Additionally, we would like to emphasise that we try to fit around your schedule and work within your best needs. Here we have Gareth working hard during VE weekend, ensuring he never leaves a job till he and the customer are happy.

Other than gutter cleans, we provide numerous other services. These include moss removal, conservatory cleans & driveway patio cleans using our pressure washer. Here’s a sneak peak via our instagram.

Moreover, on this particular job, we carried out a sand and seal perfect for block pavings. This helps to prevent staining in the future and weeds from growing. However if you wish to find out more information regarding pressure washing please follow the below link.
