Many companies promote themselves as facade maintenance specialists, but when you really think about it, all they do is employ normal building access techniques such as scaffolding or EWP machinery to get to a difficult access location and carry out normal building maintenance tasks. When you do the sums, essentially you’re paying for a regular builder to do regular work at irregular costs, as you’re paying lots of money just for the access side of the project.
A good facade maintenance specialist will have all sorts of methods of access up his or her sleeve and one of them should be industrial rope access or abseiling. Using abseiling techniques to get to facade areas needing work is the best and more often the most cost effective way of carrying out works. Why not explore the possibilities of rope access and equip yourself with the best possible method of access for concrete repair, painting, joint sealing and any other works that need to be done to your facade?
