      • looks like cutting the ivy off...dont be tempted to pull pieces out from between the roof tiles or it will be a re roofing job just cut it off so it looks neat and leave to die..similarly watch out for the plastic guttering easily snapped...the stuff on the wall should come off with a paint scraper and pair of secateurs to cut...nice little job take your time  £95 i would say

      Make sure you put job in writing.

      You need to explain that you accept no responsibility for any damage, however caused, arising from the removal of the Ivy.

      If you can see this much top growth then there will undoubtedly be a great deal of potentially damaging growth in the roof space and between the battens and tiles.

      Do a risk assessment too. There may be rats, bats, birds or squirrels nesting. If evidence of bats then you will need to take advice as they are protected.
  • Big job? Are you to trim it? Cut back? Remove? 

  • Best assume it's going to take all day with secateurs and a scraper, give yourself plenty of time. Sometimes it comes off easy other times its welded to the wall
  • I would save yourself and the client time and effort by cutting ivy at the base leaving it for at least a month to die back then see how much easier it is to remove.
  • Allow a day + green waste away..........and as others have said, "take your time". Oh yes you may need some eye protection and a dust mask!

      100% agree, don't forget your eye protection and you will definitely need a dust mask... Good luck
