PROBLEM:        Gull nests blocking roof drainage outlets.

This public house in Paignton, Devon was having extensive internal roof repairs. The roof timbers required replacement due to wet and dry rot, through water ingress caused by gull nests blocking the roof drainage gullies.


SOLUTION:      The client requested  the whole roof  be protected to prevent gulls from landing on any areas.  We designed a bird netting system  to cover all the roof areas.

To give the bird netting enough height for maintenance access, the central point of the net was taken off the middle chimney.  Stanchions were required to raise the net above the chimney, we fitted thick copper piping was into 30mm holes that were pre drilled to a depth of 15mm  into the deep chimney cap.  Stainless steel 2mm wire rope was tensioned from each chimney stanchion to the parapet walls to hold each stanchion securely in place.   These wires gave us the top supports for the netting,  the perimeter wires were installed between small, stainless steel stanchions.

The bird net installation prevented any gull or feral pigeon access.
