DIY Roller Shutter Repair Goes Seriously Wrong – What should have been a minor repair turns into a very expensive major repair job

This is the site that greeted one of our repair teams in Kent earlier today.

Being a fabrication company our customer thought it would be OK to use his own employees to attempt a repair as the door was catching up on the way down.  It is still unclear why the curtain become disconnected from the barrel at the top of the door opening but the end result was that one side of the curtain came crashing down to the floor narrowly missing somebody operating the shutter.  Our Engineers will have the shutter back up and operating on a temporary basis today and within a couple of days have it fully operational again.  Unfortunately for this customer a possible £100 call out visit to solve a minor problem will become a very expensive major repair job.
