Frequently Asked Questions

Can you repair a rusty roof?


No, rusty roofs need replacement. Patching a rusty roof prolongs the inevitable.



Do you use scaffolding?


Yes, on nearly all jobs as it is an OSH requirement firstly, but also because I want to keep my men and I safe as well as you the home owner not liable for a workers injury. If you look on OSH web site, you will see that home owner is the “Principal” and as such, is wholly and entirely responsible for falling from height.
