Roof Repairs & Replacement
From small leak repairs to re-roofs KSE have the skills, knowledge and experience to upgrade your tired roof. Traditional felt through to Sika Trocal KSE can fulfill your roofing requirements to reduce costly and damaging roof leaks.
Leaves and other debris entering your gutters can lead to serious blockages in both your gutters and your rain water outlets. Both of which can damage your building and leave you with large reactive maintenance costs and unhappy tenants or staff. A regular gutter maintenance programme is a cost effective way of preventing such issues and KSE can help you manage this area of your roof. With our wide ranging experience of work at height, KSE are your choice for this essential area of maintenance.
If your gutters are often full it maybe due to the build up of moss and algae on your rooftop. To stop moss and algae preventing your water outlets from performing incorrectly, KSE offers a roof cleaning and moss removal service. A maintenance programme of regular roof cleaning can help in preventing expensive and damaging leaks whilst potentially increasing the life span of your roof. With our wide ranging experience of work at height, KSE are your choice for this essential area of maintenance.
Sheet Lap Corrosion
Profiled sheet roofs are a low cost and low maintenance option for large units but even with the improvements in modern coatings they may require edge maintenance. Cut edges and overlapped joints remain especially vulnerable due to the effects of capillary action drawing sulphur contaminated rainwater into the joint, this causes the double hazards of “topside” and “reverse side” corrosion. KSE uses Sika products to repair the corroded laps and renew your roof seal. Sikalastic is a guaranteed, seamless treatment that completely seals the lap joint area preventing water ingress and providing maximum protection against further corrosion whilst delivering an aesthetically pleasing finish.
Even with regular cleaning of your gutters they are prone to the effects of sulphur contaminated standing water leading to the corrosion and eventual failure. Using the same sikalastic product utilised in our sheet lap edge corrosion treatments KSE can address joint leaks or reline whole sections of guttering systems. Sikalastic is a seamless, cold applied, liquid system that is quick and easy to apply to numerous roof materials increasing the performance and lifespan of your building fabric.
While most of us like to see birds around, it can be a very different matter when there are too many of them in the wrong place. Birds like pigeons, starlings, and seagulls can become a terrible nuisance if they’re allowed to congregate on business premises. We have netting and wire deterrents that can help move birds away from your property without harm:

KSE offers many maintenance and general building services.
Lightning Protection Test
LPT is required under the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989. These state that lightning protection systems should be tested in accordance with the relevant British Standard BS EN 62305. Also if a building with a poorly maintained system or a defective earth installation is struck by lightning or static electricity this can result in ‘flash-over’ to other metals within or on the structure. This can take place even without a direct strike because all lightning conductors pick up static even if the storm is 4 miles away!
A Lightning Protection Test (LPT) involves all lightning conductors and earth grounding installations being visually inspected and tested by a qualified Electrical Engineer.
Each individual earth grounding point and its conductors are electronically tested for resistance to ground.
An LPT also includes:
