Recladding Old Buildings
Traditional brick and block buildings built prior to modern technologies tend to have issues with moisture and often don’t meet modern aesthetic tastes. The sealing of buildings that was prevalent in 60’s and 70’s architecture created long term deterioration problems.
Recladding these buildings creates a ventilating area between the wall and the external façade. This allows air flow to draw moisture away from the building and to drain excess water through the bottom vents of the façade. Rainscreen recladding is the perfect way to prevent water damage to buildings whilst modernising the look and feel of external walls.
Recladding Modern Buildings
With current legislative and safety changes many architects and construction providers are looking to reclad previous projects using non-combustible solutions. Our range of non-combustible cladding solutions are ideal or all buildings. With a full RAL colour range and custom colour ranges available it is easy to meet the aesthetic requirements of the building whilst ensuring adequate safety and fire prevention measures are in place.
