Roof Maintenance, Gutter & Downpipe Clean with Photo Report & pictures

This roof maintenance involves an initial written & photographic report, gutter and downpipe clean, including up to 20 slate/tile replacements (or flat roof equivalent). Dependent on the number of properties involved in the block, a further inspection and clean would occur.*

The most common issue for property owners in a tenement is water ingress, usually due to gutter vegetation or poorly maintained roof tiles. Therefore to have this addressed on a regular basis is essential and recommended. Any work identified at inspections or due to a call-out, shall be priced with additional quotations requested as required. [Participation and equal contribution is normally required by all properties within the confines of the roof, unless property deeds or historic documentation indicate otherwise. e.g. Main door and/or commercial properties.]

Service levels can be increased upon request.

* A service matrix indicates the regularity of all core services provided, based on the number of flats within the stair.

Regular Stair Cleaning

A professional cleaning company shall carry out a regular stair clean. The number of visits per month is dependent on the number of flats in the stair.*

Service includes, lifting mats, sweeping & mopping the stairs, dusting handrails, sweeping the entry and garden passage.

The cost of this regular clean is included in our annual charge. Where a successful cleaning routine is already in place, the proportion of this cost will be deducted from our annual charge. Where owners wish to change cleaning contractors, including Edinburgh Council cleaning service, we can arrange to start our service to suit the cessation of your existing service. Edinburgh Council can credit all owners’ accounts for any months remaining in the existing cleaning contract. [Participation and contribution is normally only required by properties within the stairwell, unless usage or property deeds indicate otherwise.]

Lighting Maintenance - year round

Home owners have a legal duty of care to anyone entering the stairs to ensure that the stair lighting installation is maintained and continues to operate as intended (The Occupiers’ Liability (Scotland) Act 1960).

As Edinburgh Council no longer provide lighting maintenance,  owners are obliged to make alternative arrangements to provide effective lighting.  Within our core services package,

Edinburgh Block Management now provide annual lighting maintenance. Replacing redundant or faulty light tubes within the yearly charge.

Our contract electrician will test electrical circuit safety, timers, all stairwell lighting and replace tubes as required, on the initial visit.

Thereafter residents/owners can easily contact us to report any faulty lights. 

Frequent property inspections by EBM staff shall also report lighting issues.

[Participation and contribution is normally only by properties within the stairwell, unless usage or property deeds indicate otherwise.]
