Metal Theft Prevention & Anti-Vandal Solutions
With the economic climate in turmoil, thefts of leadwork, copper and cast iron are on the increase. Many homes and businesses are falling victim to the theft of lead from roofs and guttering leaving properties unprotected from the effects of the weather.
Even items such as grid and manhole covers are being stolen for their scrap value and sold to unscrupulous scrap metal dealers. Thieves are also targeting churches for metal theft.
Imagine the horror of returning home to find thieves have stripped the leadwork from your roof at home or work. Replacement leadwork can be a costly undertaking and is better prevented where possible. Schools and churches in Macclesfield and surrounding areas of Cheshire are becoming a frequent target for metal theft.
