One of the biggest enemies of your roof is actually Snow or Ice.

In no way try to fix a roof when it is raining, snowing, or even the weather is freezing. When your roof is wet or slippery, you might stop up slipping, leading to significant personal injury as well as death. If you are undertaking your own roof covering yourself, work on this when it is sunny and also dry outdoors and you also use the correct PPE and also Obtain equipment.

Whenever adding new roof tiles which can result in your roof vulnerable, make sure they fit as snug as a bug in a rug. If they’re sometimes slightly loosened, water can easily seep inside them by means of capillary action, causing you headaches you don’t need. Pick the best size to spare by yourself with problems in the future.

By no means attempt to repair your roof while the conditions are hazardous. Your roof can wait until the weather conditions improves, and you need to be more concerned with your own basic safety than the state of your home’s roof. Any thunder or wind storms could cause further damage anyway, there really is not much use in trying fix it until finally it all ends.

When you are considering a roof contractor learn about their expertise. Try asking for how long they’ve been in business. If they have been doing business for a minimum of several years, that usually shows that they have been established and they also have a solid understanding of roofing systems and techniques check if they’re accredited to any professional bodies , definitely not those you simply pay a subscription to.

Have a leak in your roof covering? Check out your gutters. Your gutters of your house can easily come to be blocked, and could be a major cause of leakages, particularly if they haven’t yet recently been cleaned out fairly recently. If you see they are filled with debris, like leaves, be sure to call MaxiVac who will clean them out with there brand-new rain gutter cleaning system.

Ensure that you hire a roofing company who has a locatable, permanent business address definitely not generally there home address. Should you hire a roofing company who does not currently have a permanent place of business, you face being scammed. Additionally, when the roofing contractor you actually hire does a great job, it can be helpful to possess said contractor’s permanent contact details on hand when you have any further issues with your home’s roof in the foreseeable future.

To avoid a typical rip-off roofing companies engage in, don’t pay anything to your contractor in advance, definitely not even for supplies, just about any legitimate roofing company really should have the cash flow to complete the work. Some companies will ask for a down payment in advance to pay for the supplies, you actually should pay them on completion of the work and you have received all the warranties and Building Control paperwork (part L required by Law).

Lead roofs certainly are a very expensive alternative. However, if you’re able to have the funds for the Lead roofing materials, this can be a very beautiful alternative. As the Lead ages, the Lead turns a Dark Grey coloration that accents most residences very well. Even though this is an expensive alternative, anyone that sees your house will be amazed.

In the wintertime, make sure your roof comes with ice shields, snow boards to protect conservatories and extensions. Also, make sure it’s got proper ventilation. Your house is heated and requires ventilation to prevent condensation to the interior of rooms.

When choosing any roofing company to work on your own property, make sure they’ve got Public liability and Employee insurance for at least 10,000,000.00. For starters, if your roofer provides this type of insurance, you will be confident that they’re trustworthy. Secondly, should anything happen to your roof because they’re working on it, their insurance will pay for just about any problems.

If you currently have any kind of roof issues please don’t hesitate to make contact with Maxiflow on 01244 330019 or kevin@maxiflow.co.uk

Re-instatement Works at 40 Bridge Street

Francescos 2

Maxiflow are currently involved in re-instatement works at 40 Bridge Street in Chester. The shop is presently used by a hairdressing business.

40 Bridge Street is a Tudor style building of 1858 designed by James Harrison and built, in loose Gothic Revival style for Welsby’s wine merchants. A projecting porch, to the north, and a shaped timber bracket, to the south, support a projecting balcony in front of the Row walk.

In excavating for new buildings in this area several bases of Roman character have been discovered at a depth of 4 feet below the surface. They are in their original positions, forming a colonnade, placed four yards apart, resting on large blocks of stone 12 inches thick.

In the cellars is ghostly ‘George’. He has been seen by many of the staff occupying the ground floor.

There has recently been a considerable amount of flood damage to the property. Maxiflow has been commissioned to strip out the property and perform re-instatement works.

This work involves: –

  • Sanitising all the walls in the cellar
  • Form a second room in cellar including new doorway
  • Tiling of walls
  • New timber door frames
  • Plumb in new pipework
  • Install new saniflo
  • Supply and install new timber skirting
  • Re-instate existing boiler and tank
  • Re-paint all walls

Maxiflow will be using local suppliers, where possible to source job materials. All materials used will be from sustainable sources where this is possible. Waste from the works will be segregated and recycled where possible reducing the amount of waste sent to landfill.

Sustainability is at the core of everything that Maxiflow does.

The Maxiflow Stand at Chester FC

We at Maxiflow are very proud to announce that we have formed a new partnership with Chester Football Club!

We have signed an exclusive deal to become the club’s Stadium Improvement Partner. This is a role we are more than familiar with, having carried out many works for the club in the past, including significant drainage and ground works. Drainage works on the main pitch are set to continue in the pre-season run-up, with other projects to be announced in the future.

The main East Stand is to be rebranded as The Maxiflow.co.uk Stand, featuring significant representation of the Maxiflow brand inside and outside of the stadium. We are delighted to be representing the Home Supporters for Chester FC’s future matches and will be working to improve the experience for all fans.

We have been talking to Maxiflow for a while about working together and we are delighted to have finally come to an agreement. They are a company who have a large presence in the community and share with us a number of our club values.

We have a schedule of work in and around the ground and Maxiflow will be working with us closely on this. They will gain profile for their partnership with us and we are delighted to have them on board.

Dave Riche
Chester FC Business Development Manager

Previously, Maxiflow was involved in Chester FC’s ‘Backing the Blues’ campaign. This proved to be a very lucrative relationship, as the increased exposure quickly lead to us securing a £250,000 maintenance contract. So we are looking forward to working together with Chester FC on a significantly more involved basis.

We are very excited to form our new partnership with Chester Football Club. As a community-focused company, we have worked with many local institutions, from Chester Zoo to the University of Chester, and we feel that this deal strengthens our connection with this great city. We are especially proud to be working closely with a club owned by the most passionate and loyal fans you could ever find.

We would like to thank everyone at Chester FC for making this partnership possible and we are very much looking forward to the future.

Kevin McLeod
Maxiflow Managing Director

We will have more news about our exciting new partnership as it develops, and will soon have photographs of the newly-branded Maxiflow.co.uk Stand!
