It's Nearly Christmas!

It's December, Santa is on his way, so pressure is on this month making sure we deliver our Christmas Property Maintenance Services before the big man comes. We have lots to get through, lots of homes to visit, lots of painting to do, windows to clean, gutters to unblock - it's always a busy month but the Santa's MKM helpers are ready to go! We've got our tree up in the office, it's freezing cold here in Thornliebank but MKM Property Services are wrapped up and ready to help your Christmas be magical!

DECK THE HALLS WITH PAINT, Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la!

Our Painting and Decorating Team have been very busy carrying out jobs in Thornliebank, Giffnock, Newton Mearns, Paisley, East Kilbride and over in Galston, Ayrshire. We have been plastering, painting, fitting cornice, tiling and lots more. Unfortunately there have been a number of clients who have been in touch due to burst pipes and other insurance related issues, so it's important that we do as much as we can to get these homes back into a condition before Christmas.

Every week our Window Cleaners are out keeping on top of ongoing window cleaning work locally in Newton Mearns, Barrhead, Clarkston, Giffnock and Paisley. But we also get requests for one-off deep cleans at this time of year for Santa coming. Just this week the guys are attending The Range store on London Road in Glasgow to carry out a thorough clean of their entrance areas. This involved an internal clean by old fashioned squeegee before opening hours to avoid disruption to their operations and an external clean using our Reach and Wash water-fed pole system.

The Roofing guys are busy with ongoing Roof maintenance, reactive Roof repairs and annual gutter cleaning services once again this month. We have been working on a large volume of jobs in Newton Mearns, Glasgow (both southside and west end), in Giffnock and in Barrhead.

Over in the West of Glasgow we carried out slating work on dormer haffits. The Haffits are the side walls of the dormer.

On the same project we also worked on a dormer roof. The felted roof was primed and coated with RapidRoof which is seamless a liquid rubber coating that provides a high quality, long lasting waterpoof coating for the roof. The three stages of cleaning and preparing, taping the joints and finally coating the roof with RapidRoof are shown below.
