Slate Repair & Roof Maintenance, Edinburgh

SG Access specialise in maintenance for hard to reach locations, utilising rope access techniques to safely, efficiently and cost effectively complete high level maintenance such as slate repair, and roof remedial works around Edinburgh.

Slate repairs & Roof Maintenance Edinburgh


A recent survey by Edinburgh World Heritage suggested that Edinburgh’s World Heritage status could be at risk, largely due to a lack of high level maintenance. Of the 202 buildings assessed, 147 required some form of basic maintenance (thats over 70%!), from slate repairs to gutter cleaning to masonry repairs.


We are of the opinion that difficult access is a large contributing factor to this, with both the costs and inconvenience of traditional access methods such as scaffolding meaning that many neglect basic minor maintenance such as slate repairs until there is a large enough scale of work to justify the expense of access provision.


Rope Access (professional abseiling) can help. A Safe – Efficient – Cost Effective solution to building maintenance.


At SG Access, we believe that by making it simple, safe, and affordable for tenement property owners to carry out this type of regular high level maintenance, we can help keep the roofs and buildings of Edinburgh in tip top condition.
