Cladding Remedial Works

Cladding Remedial Works

What We Offer

We are specialist and qualified consultants reporting on façade repair and improvement works. We investigate remedial work needs, from structural and front panel façade defects to investigating the fire risks of facades.

We visit your building to carry out testing on your façade. Our reports include a thorough investigation of façade materials, structural integrity as well as water ingress and combustibility risks. If you have specific queries about our consultancy or want to talk to us in more detail, do get in touch.

 

Common Concerns

Façade Materials

 

The materials used in building facades should be structurally sound and prevent risks such as the spreading of fires. It is important to ensure that the building you are responsible for is made out of materials that both adhere to safety regulations as well as being safely installed.

We can check your building against the designs and your O & M Manual to inspect levels of safety and compliance. We have extensive experience of a range of facade materials including stone, aluminium, glass, timber, high pressure laminates and composite materials as well as copper, zinc and brass.

 

Rainscreen Cladding

 

We have been involved with the design and application of rainscreen cladding systems for over 30 years. This is now widely used as a cladding option however can easily be fitted incorrectly causing leaks and façade defects.

Incorrect or ill-fitting fixing centres are some of the defects that can be found in the installation of cladding. These can result in loose panels and allow for the potential for falling panels.

We advise on fire barriers, interfaces, insulations and membranes. We check the materials, installation and sub-structure of your rainscreen cladding.

 

Coping and Flashing Failure

 

Bad weather can cause damage if items such as wall panels are secured loosely. These types of challenges are more likely to become apparent in times of temperature fluctuations, such as a change of season or during stormy weather.

We investigate coping and flashing failure that can lead to water ingress.  Our façade testing is carried out to CWCT standard.

 

Façade Structural Fixing Problems

 

Poor, speedy or value (cheap) engineering installation can lead to safety concerns. Cladding can hide issues such as structural concerns.

Issues such as falling panels are one of the more noticeable impacts of poor installation. Such instances can often be symptomatic of larger issues. We look at both the concerns at hand as well as carry out a thorough investigation of any wider issues in the whole façade.
