Important Works Continue



Important Works Continue

Whilst the situation remains fluid and we continue to observe all government advice and restrictions as they’re announced, we would just like to reassure our customers, as well as the residents of the properties within which we are working, that we are still delivering our projects on site.

It is structurally important that certain roofing tasks continue on some of the buildings we are working on, however the safety of our operatives and those they come into contact with is our highest priority.

Our site-based staff are working hard to ensure they keep a 2m distance from one another at all times, washing their hands thoroughly and regularly as well as not sharing vehicles with anyone.

In addition to these precautions, our office operations are now being carried out remotely by our team members, from the safety of their own homes.

We are continuously monitoring the official guidelines and will immediately make any changes as required.

Thanks For Supporting Us



3 Years – Thanks For Supporting Us

Highview spent Friday evening celebrating the 3 year company anniversary, by treating staff and supply chain members to a night of indoor go-karting!

The celebration included a fiercely competitive karting Grand Prix, followed by drinks and a bite to eat at the local pub.

“It was a great opportunity to thank everyone for their efforts to date and to see how we can continue to support each other’s businesses and improve in the future.
Well done to the winners from the two finals. (I’m not at all upset that I didn’t make the podium!!!)”

Terry Lake, Managing Director

Roofing Projects – Ask the Expert



Roofing Projects – Ask the Expert

When managing a project as complex as a roof replacement or new roof installation, many of your building’s vital components are at stake, so it’s of paramount importance to get it right!

Highview’s Head of Operations, Tom Titler, has 33 years’ management experience within the roofing industry, with his wisdom and expertise having earned him a position sitting on the RBM Technical Committee for the National Federation of Roofing Contractors.

We asked our in-house expert Tom, what his experience has shown to be the top 5 things to consider when approaching any roofing project.

 

Read the Warranty

“Often I see specifications of roofing products which the client believes to have an extended guarantee period (sometimes 40 years or more), when in reality all may not be what it seems…

When looking at a warranty, always read the small print. If broken down, a warranty period can actually be made up into 5 year + 5 year phases, usually relying on regular servicing and inspections to validate the cover.

Always make sure you are clear on what you are specifying.”

 

Installer & Manufacturer Collaboration

“If an installer commences a project that uncovers challenges resulting in an unsuitable specification, they may recommend that an alternative product be used instead. Allowing the installer to liaise directly with your chosen manufacturer will speed up the rectification process, promoting a ‘knowledge sharing’ collaborative approach with the best outcome for your project.”

 

Check Existing Insulation

“Checking there is no existing insulation in your roof void prior to specifying the works is key and most good roofing manufacturers will do this.

If existing insulation is missed, the risk of Interstitial condensation becomes high,  as moisture becomes trapped between the roof void and new system, resulting in possible failure of the underlying structure and high repair costs.

Removal of insulation prior to installation is always the best long-term approach to the project.”

 

Consider Cavities

“If your roof is abutting a cavity wall, has the manufacturer accounted for a Cavity Tray?

It sounds simple, but if missed and a tray is not installed, the install can be compromised.”

 

Time your Programme

“With weather as seasonal as we have it in the UK, any project is best planned well in advance, taking into account any potential extreme conditions.

Too wet, too icy, or too hot, and you could encounter costly delays. Ensure that all key project members consider this when planning your timeline.”
