SPOUTING REPAIR – 13 JULY 2018
Spouting was sagging and dripping over the edge and it was 6m up from the ground. The homeowner called Handy Manners to fix it. We pointed out that code calls for spouting to be installed with brackets every 400mm and whoever installed his spouting had saved a bit of money by putting brackets every 800mm. When we got up there we also found they had used only 1 nail per bracket (4 recommended).
The easy fix was to install a few extra brackets and put a couple of extra screws into some of the old brackets. It helped that we had the appropriate height safety equipment to do the job easily and safely. Another happy customer.
