Vegetation can grow anywhere; buildings, bridges, roofs etc. And it grows quickly! Without professional monitoring and maintenance, vegetation can cause structural damage, and if left for an excessive amount of time, become very dangerous.
The IRATA compliant Orb Rope Access team have the skills, experience and equipment to access hard to reach places, clear the vegetation, and provide reports and guidance on carrying out repairs on damage caused by vegetation growth.
We remove vegetation and repair damage on all types of buildings, whether they’re commercial, industrial, civil or residential premises. Beforehand, we carry out a site survey and agree a way forward that is acceptable for the customer and which will cause as little disruption as possible.
