Greengate Mechanical Services Ltd, Newbury

This roof refurbishment project saw a deteriorating and flaking roof surface transform into a protected, long lasting fully refurbished roof.

Cladding Coatings metal roof coating knowledge was called upon for this external refurbishment project in Newbury.

Greengate Mechanical Services Ltd are one of the UK’s most experienced air conditioning and mechanical services companies. They pride themselves on having a skilled and knowledgeable team with years of industry experience.

Greengate Mechanical Services in Newbury contacted Cladding Coatings as they knew their building was starting to show some signs of deterioration. With a reputation to uphold, they knew the importance of having a building that not only looked smart and professional but one that is safe and secure to house their business operations.

During the site visit, where we conducted a free on-site survey, the Cladding Coatings team created a detailed plan for the work that would be required. Metal roof coating was the main focus of the work for Greengate Mechanical, but the on-site survey also revealed that the rooflights and gutter system on the property would require refurbishing.

As the work for this project is on the roof, it was evident that we would need to install an access tower and safety handrail to ensure our team could work safely on site. Health and safety are of paramount importance to us at Cladding Coatings, and we always ensure all health and safety is adhered to when working on-site to protect our team and your staff and visitors.

Metal roof coating using trusted systems

Roofs bear the brunt of the weather and damage caused by foliage and sometimes even animals. Consequently, over time metal roof cladding can start to deteriorate, and if left untreated, it can cause problems for your property.

The metal roof on this industrial unit showed signs of deterioration that needed addressing before they got any worse. We elected to use the trusted 10-year Noxyde® system from Rust-Oleum for the metal roof coating. Noxyde® is an excellent choice for the on-site spraying of metal roof cladding, and it offers exceptional anti-corrosion properties. It can also be applied in a vast range of colours and comes backed by a minimum 10-year guarantee.

Ensuring your metal roof coating is well maintained will help keep your property protected from leaks and damage in the future. Knowing that our work comes backed by a minimum 10-year guarantee gives you the ultimate peace of mind in the quality and standard of our work.

Refurbishing the rooflights and gutter system

From the on-site survey, it was clear that the rooflights and part of the gutter system would need refurbishing in addition to the metal roof coating.

Rooflights require regular upkeep and maintenance like any other part of your building, and like the rest of the roof, they can be exposed to some pretty harsh weather. Failing to look after them can cause damage to your property, and you could end up with a costly bill to replace your rooflights.

The rooflights on this unit were dull and required some attention. After cleaning the existing rooflights with professional systems, we installed the Vernac system, which stops dirt and debris from sticking to the rooflights again. Once coated, the rooflights looked cleaner clearer and would now allow more natural light into the property. Coating the rooflights has also increased their durability.

Part of the gutter system also required repairing and refurbishing. We used Fillcoat Fibres to repair any cracks or holes to ensure the gutters would work more efficiently without leaks.

It is important to make sure that any issues with guttering are dealt with as soon as possible. A blocked or leaking gutter system can cause damage to your wall cladding and also your metal roof cladding as water isn’t able to effectively drain away from your property.

Greengate Mechanical Services Ltd was pleased with the outcome of their roof refurbishment and the finish that Cladding Coatings achieved. As with all work we complete, our systems and services are backed by a minimum 10-year guarantee, with some coating systems providing an even longer product guarantee. So like Greengate Mechanical Services Ltd, you can rest assured that your refurbishment project will be completed to the highest quality standard with excellent attention to detail.
