Cladding is any material used to cover a structure’s exterior. Picture a protective layer over a surface sort of a roof or exterior wall. Just as your skin protects internal bones and organs, cladding protects against the weather and shields against environmental conditions. Cladding doesn’t have to be waterproof, but it often controls how elements hit or fall on a surface. Think about how a raincoat allows rain to slip off of you instead of soaking your clothing. Cladding also can serve an ornamental function, to cover a more structural but perhaps not attractive substrate. Carry out cladding repair services provides an ideal solution to all the client’s requirements that allows us to target the key areas of your building that need work, with a focused building repair project tailored exactly to your needs for a bespoke, protected façade finish.
Full cladding restraining and building refurbishment is, of course, the type of project we often do here at Cladding Coatings. Yet it doesn’t mean it’s the proper one for you, as you’ll just need just a couple of panels, or a selected area of cladding repaired as a standalone project or additionally to full cladding refurbishment work. Building repair before the damage becomes extensive allows you to avoid the value and chaos of replacement, which might be inevitable if the world of the facade were left untreated.
An oft-seen reason for metal cladding and roofing sheet repair is cut-edge corrosion damage. A common problem, cut-edge corrosion occurs at the edge of sheets and around openings, such as windows, doors, and roof lights. As the metal cladding sheeting begins to peel back, it exposes the inside of your building to the weather. Experienced in cut-edge corrosion repair, and using optimal corrosion protection systems, we target key areas for cladding repair before the water enters your property.
However small, a damaged area of your exterior cladding negatively impacts your presentable facade finish. Areas are often impacted by location, like the sea-facing side of a property or the world closest to foliage. In retail premises, sometimes damage can occur to cladding near ground level and around shop entrances, caused by shoppers and trolleys. Cladding repair on these key areas of your property delivers a uniform, polished, and professional finish.
Cladding may be a critical line of defense against wind, water, sun, and snow. Many building envelope problems can occur when cladding is compromised. Even the littlest breach or failure potentially exposes your interiors to moisture, rot, mold, and mildew. Structural integrity issues to the wall system are likely to follow. It is important, therefore, to regularly monitor your exteriors for cracks, leaks, dark patches (indicating moisture infiltration), or any signs of physical damage. If repairs are required, you want to make sure that they’re administered as soon as possible. Proper maintenance with regular cleaning, sealing, caulking, and painting also can help to stop major problems from occurring and therefore the consequent repair expenses.
