Generator Enclosure Repairs
We offer inspection of existing canopies that are in need of repair. After conducting an initial site visit we can advise what is best for your canopy which can include replacement of parts such as doors, exhausts and attenuators etc. We can fit parts on site, paint, re-seal, replace roofs and more depending on the condition of the canopy and requirements.
We offer a free inspection within a 150 mile radius of Colchester. Beyond that, we charge a small fee to cover travel expenses. This may vary depending on location.
