Abseiling for Construction & Building Maintenance in Little Portugual
It is not always possible to access your Little Portugual building once the scaffold has been struck and using cherry pickers is simply too expensive. To put things in perspective, our abseilers can usually complete the task for the cost of hiring a cherrypicker! and that doesn’t include anyone to actually complete the work you need, it’s only the hiring cost.
If you add that to the inconvenience of trying manoeuvre a massive lorry to the work area, abseiling really does make sense. Or abseilers can reach any area of your building to assist with installations or repair an ongoing issue, be it a leaking gutter, replacing glazing, adding an expansion joint or inspecting for faults.
