WHY DOES CLADDING FAIL AND HOW DOES PAINTING HELP?
Cladding is no longer used just for just for farm storage areas and aircraft hangars. Advances in material technology have enabled cladding, in a variety of designs, to be used on most building types in the UK. The chances are, you have passed many buildings today that have incorporated this material into its design and build. Its flexibility, cost and availability make it a popular choice.
As cladding has advanced over the decades and designers have learned from previous failures, life to first maintenance has increased. Known issues with previously clad buildings are:
Water Damage caused by condensation. The underlying material of cladding will be a metal of some sort. With the UK climate, this will make the material prone to condensation on the inner and outer layers. Condensation build up on the inner layer can speed up the cut edge process.
Expansion and contraction of the panels due to heat and cold exposure. Dark colours are more prone to movement in the summer. Over time this can cause failure of the existing coatings due to the constant warping. Expansion and contraction can be more problematic around joints and fixing areas.
Fixings. The flexibility of cladding can also cause problems. The fixing of the sheets to the structure of the building requires drilling holes in the sheets. Fixings and fasteners have moved on and should hold longer life expectancy but older fixings may have corroded and cause problems.
CLADDING PAINTING CONTRACTORS
As a nationwide cladding painting contractor we can complete a colour change as part of a re-branding project or an element of a planned maintenance programme, our cladding painting operatives can offer a solution to refurbishing existing cladding. We work closely with building maintenance and construction companies as well as the end client to ensure that disruption is kept to a minimum whilst maintaining strict health and safety standards. Our Paint Sprayers are CSCS certified and hold PASMA, IPAF and EFAW certificates. We offer full RAL and BS colours and can help match colours if requested. We also specialise in electrostatic painting which is ideal for re-coating curtain walling.
Some cladded units may show evidence of cut edge corrosion which is caused when unprotected metal edges are exposed to the elements for long periods of time. We can assess the extent of any damage and suggest the best way forward. Then our expert spray painters can help limit deterioration to commercial premises by re-coating cladding.
When a company requests our cladding spraying service, we will liaise closely with the client throughout the following stages:
SITE SURVEY – PRIOR TO CLADDING PAINTING
If necessary, the site will be surveyed by one of our estimating team. Occasionally, they will be joined by representatives of our paint suppliers who will visit depending on the size and complexity of the project. The areas to be looked at will be:
- The condition of the existing substrate
- Access needs
RECOMMENDATIONS FOR CLADDING RE-COATING
After our initial survey we will forward our recommendations to the client which will include:
- Materials that are to be used for cladding spraying and paint product data sheets will be sent. It is vital that the correct specification is offered at this stage to ensure optimum adhesion and maximum life expectancy when paint is applied.
- Access arrangements.
- A quotation to carry out the necessary spraying works.
INSTRUCTION AND START ON SITE
Once the project has been ordered by the client we will be in continued contact with them and the following will be issued:
- Site-specific risk assessments, method statements and COSHH sheets will be produced for the planned spraying prior to commencement on site.
- Timetable of work will be agreed with the client.
CLADDING CLEANING AND WASHING SERVICES
If you would like to give your business premises an instant lift, Industrial Painters also offer cladding cleaning services, specialising in the cleaning of windows, soffits and fascias with teams based throughout the UK.
Cladding can quickly become covered in dust and grime leaving it looking dirty and stained. This can ultimately lead to discolouration and corrosion which can damage the substrate and ultimately, the building.
All sorts of industrial buildings are cladded with large expanses of corrugated metal which can appear tatty if they aren’t maintained properly. The original powder coating can flake off or fade and this not only looks unattractive, it can ultimately affect the structure of the metal substrate. This can mean that damp seeps into the building leading to expensive construction repairs. Rust and corrosion of metal cladding are problems that can be remedied by Industrial Painters before a fresh top coat is a spray applied.
A new coating sprayed onto cladding will result in a uniform finish that will give the whole building a new lease of life. The top layer will also make the cladding panels last much longer and will mean that the metalwork will not need to be replaced for years to come. A single elevation can be re-coated if it has weathered more quickly than other facades or the whole building can be re-sprayed. Sometimes a few commercial units on an industrial estate are refurbished by us in one go for a consistent look.
