Roof Guttering Repairs Underway

We are pleased to confirm that contractors have begun work to carry out structural repairs to the guttering of the roof on the horseshoe section of Home Park.

In the summer, the club commissioned an extensive physical survey of the roof that lies atop the Devonport End, Lyndhurst Road Stand and Kawasaki Barn Park End sections of the stadium - which has stood largely unaltered since its installation at the turn of the millennium – and found the roof to be in excellent condition, but the guttering in a state of disrepair.

The club acknowledges the impact that this has had on the experience of a few unfortunate supporters, some of whom have had to be temporarily moved due to leaks on rainy match-days. The repairs will eliminate instances of rainwater leaking through the roof and into the stadium, as well as extend the lifespan of the guttering for at least 25 years.

We thank the Green Army for their patience while we assessed the scope of the required repairs. The works are significant, but are scheduled to be complete before the next Sky Bet League One fixture at Home Park, against Port Vale on the evening of Friday, 2 December.

The guttering repair is the next in a long line of improvements to all aspects of Home Park, with the club taking great strides in improving the function, look and feel, supporter experience, and environmental credentials of the stadium.

In the past couple of seasons alone, work has been undertaken to upgrade the floodlights, replace tired seating in the Lyndhurst Stand, update the branding inside and outside of the stadium, renovate the Mayflower Grandstand car park, and introduce a host of environmental improvements – including an innovative rainwater harvesting system on the Mayflower Grandstand and solar panels on the roof.

Argyle’s Head of Venue, Christian Kent, said: “This repair will safeguard the roof and contributes to the wider work we are doing to ensure the long-term health and outlook of Home Park is positive.

“The leaks through the roof were a challenge, a particularly large one if you were unfortunate enough to be situated beneath one of the problem areas.

“A lot of work has gone into building the attendances we have at Argyle now, and also in vastly improving the match-day experience once supporters arrive. We are pleased to remedy this issue.”
