Preparation For Solar

If you have decided to have solar panels fitted to your roof, you will need to ensure it is in a suitable condition. Metal roof coating can deteriorate over time which can cause severe problems for your property if not addressed.

Roofs bear the brunt of the ever-changing weather. Therefore, they often become damaged, and their metal roof coating starts to peel away, and areas of corrosion can develop, which can cause problems for your building.

Cladding coatings have years of experience refurbishing metal roof cladding on commercial and industrial buildings using the highest quality systems backed by longstanding guarantees.

We can refurbish metal roof cladding as part of a large scale external refurbishment or as a standalone project in preparation for solar panel installation.

Are you thinking of having solar panels fitted on your building?

In a world where everyone is trying to be greener and reduce their carbon footprint, many businesses elect to install solar panels on their commercial and industrial buildings. With the way energy and fuel costs keep rising, many people are making the switch to go greener.

Are you thinking about having solar panels fitted on your building, or have you already decided it is something you will do?

You may have overlooked one thing when making your decision: whether your roof is up to standard to receive solar panels.

Is your roof ready for solar panels?

With any project, Cladding Coatings will always visit your site to conduct a free on-site survey to assess the condition of your building. We also offer a drone survey for a small fee, where you will see all of the areas that are hard to see and access.

Your building may be relatively new, or the roof cladding might still be in good condition; therefore, it may only require our cladding cleaning service to ensure that the roof is clean and free of debris before solar panels are installed.

Does your roof show signs of deterioration? A roof with areas of severe corrosion is unsafe and, therefore, cannot safely have solar panels installed.

Issues such as cut edge corrosion can cause real problems for your building. If corrosion isn’t dealt with when the first signs appear, you could be facing a costly cladding replacement project. However, if spotted early enough when the damage isn’t too severe, we can repair and refurbish your roof using high-quality coating systems and treatments.

The high-quality systems we use to refurbish your metal roof cladding provide excellent corrosion protection, are highly durable and offer fantastic waterproofing capabilities. Not only this, but some of our roof coating systems are guaranteed for up to 30 years. This is equal to if not exceeding the lifespan of most solar panels, so you can rest assured that your roof refurbishment will be of the highest quality and will last for years to come.

You can read more about the 30 – year roof coating system which we used to refurbish the roof at Synertec in Warrington.

Something else to consider when looking at the condition of your roof is whether the guttering is up to standard because failing guttering can lead to problems. Read more about our gutter refurbishment services here.
