Pigeon Proofing in London

Bird Proofing

We find the best solution for your specific bird netting needs and offer a broad choice of bird proofing systems

Bird proofing is an essential part of any property’s maintenance. Indeed, without installing an effective bird proofing system, birds will not hesitate to land on your property’s window ledges, balconies, gutters, and other attractive surfaces. Some birds may even decide to permanently move in and create a nest in the roofline of a property which can cause serious damage to the structure of your building. 

Here at Spectrum, we are experts in pigeon netting installation and pest control. As a bird proofing contractor, we are able to install bird netting, bird spikes, bird wire, and bird repellent gel, however, there is not always a “one size fits all” solution. Instead, we concentrate on finding the best solution for your specific bird netting needs and offer a broad choice of bird proofing systems, including bird netting repairs and bird netting installations. 

The Project

Most recently, one of our clients required complex bird netting repairs and bird netting adaptations, as well as brand new bird netting installation. As bird proofing contractors, we were delighted to be able to assist the client with their unique bird proofing needs and use our bird netting expertise to ensure their property was perfectly bird proofed.  

This specific bird proofing project was both complex and incredibly rewarding. After one of the property’s residents spotted one of our branded company vans, he recommended us to the property’s management company as he thought it was a remarkable coincidence that we had the same name as the building itself – ‘Spectrum.’

 

The Site

The building’s existing bird netting was damaged and needed replacing in some areas as well as adapting. However, some of the bird netting was incredibly awkward to get to and required a bit of ingenious creativity to gain access to – especially if we didn’t want to damage the existing bird netting. 

With only three days to complete the project, we had to think quickly to effectively bird proof the building and deliver a project that the client would be delighted with. 

The Logistics

With limited time, and restricted access, as well as the threat of pigeons becoming trapped in the existing bird netting, this bird proofing project posed a complex challenge. However, thanks to both the expertise and agility of our professional bird proofing team, we were able to successfully bird proof the entire building within a matter of days. 

Indeed, our specially IRATA trained staff were able to use their abseiling skills to gain access to the existing bird proof netting and save the client not only thousands of pounds in access costs but a lot of time. They were also able to conduct a thorough inspection of the bird netting using this method to ensure that there were no pigeons caught in the netting before closing it once it was fully repaired. 

Moreover, they were able to improve the existing bird proofing system by making some clever adaptions to ensure that it lasts longer. For example, they installed a zip closing system so that residents or other external contractors would be able to gain access to the building for further building works without breaking the bird proofing netting.  

 

What Were the Highlights?

Delivering a project that not only satisfies, but exceeds the client’s expectations, is always a highlight for us. However, we were also delighted to have been able to go above and beyond for this client and clean the entirety of the building so that there were no remaining bird droppings or feathers fouling the building. 

As specialists in bird netting installation, we took great pride in completing this project to the highest of standards whilst ensuring the safety of our staff, the building, and the pigeons at all times. Indeed, did you know that pigeons are able to find their way back to their nest from over 1,300 miles away?!

We were also pleased to have saved the client a significant sum of money in access costs. Our specially IRATA trained staff of abseilers, and agility to access otherwise difficult to reach places, allows us to reduce the need for costly scaffolding and save each of our clients up to 70% in access costs as well as ample time and unnecessary stress.
