Pigeon spikes added to renovated Ouse House in York

MJ Backhouse

MJ Backhouse has just recently added stainless steel pigeon spikes to the newly renovated Ouse House in York, on behalf of main contractor Swell Construction of York.

Pigeons can be a real nuisance, causing a mess and disruptive noise on properties and more and more people are becoming aware of measures which can be taken to significantly reduce their activity. Pigeon spikes are highly effective at stopping pigeons roost and then foul on buildings and are not that ugly, so they do not detract from the natural beauty of a property, making them perfect for any age of building. For this project, the MJ Backhouse team has added the spikes on the four-story buildings old cast iron gutters.

Pigeon problems are common across Yorkshire and can find many places to roost and foul, including solar panels of which we have completed a lot of works for recently. Lots of people are now deciding to put preventative measures on their buildings such as netting and spikes, which will significantly reduce the likelihood of pigeon activities on your building.

If you think you have a problem with pigeon activity and work like a highly effective preventive measure to prevent activity, please do not hesitate to get in touch with one of our team today by calling 0800 5426359.
