Your property is prone to the structural damage that time and weathering can bring, but regular maintenance of your facade can avoid this from happening too soon, and can save you from cashing out costly repairs further down the line. Keeping on top of your building’s health will also ensure structural integrity and aesthetic appeal. It could also increase the value of your property if you’re wishing to sell it at some point in the future. We often have queries coming through with concerns of whether or not we can reach/access their complex builds, or request a maintenance service with a tight budget, and the solution to most of these queries is - rope access. Rope access services in London are a cost-effective alternative to scaffolding, and is immensely effective and efficient, and is actually our most preferred form of access. Our operatives are all IRATA trained which means that we can carry out specialist jobs, such as brick tinting and repointing, all via rope. This gives us the freedom to use our expert skills at any height and without the restriction that scaffolding can often bring, making us one of the very best building restoration companies in London.
Rope access in London is continuing to grow in popularity, and this is due to a variety of different reasons:
Allows business to continue as usual
Our rope access company in London allows freedom and adaptability when repairing and restoring properties. This means that a business/company or shop can stay open while work is carried out.
If a shop is in need of maintenance then scaffolding is usually erected which could result in the temporary closure of that shop, and lead to a huge loss of income. Rope access, however, solves this problem, its non-disruptive and flexible benefits allow businesses to continue to run as usual.
Not only does rope access in London save shops from losing business, but it also saves famous landmarks from being covered in ugly scaffolding.
Over the past five years, Big Ben has been covered in scaffolding, and the whole project amounted to a whopping £80 million pounds.
Can you guess how much the scaffolding cost?
£3 million pounds!
Our rope access team could’ve cut a large proportion of that cost.
So why should you choose rope access over scaffolding in London for your next restoration/maintenance service?
There are multiple benefits of choosing rope access in London, with one of them being a much faster and less invasive service, due to there being less equipment involved and less manpower required; it cuts down the overall costs.

Rope access and abseiling are two exchangeable words and mean the exact same thing - the professional use of ropes to inspect, maintain and restore properties.
Although rope access may seem scary and dangerous, it’s actually one of the safest methods of access. It also has a better safety record than scaffolding, so it could potentially be safer.
Rope access is a great career choice for people who like heights and love to work outdoors in various locations, the average salary is also £54,000 per year.

To become a qualified rope access technician you will need to go through lots of training, and this can be both mentally and physically hard. The day to day work can also be quite strenuous.
