The Costs of not Treating Cut Edge Corrosion

The condition of the cladding on a building begins to decline over time due to aging and weathering. Meaning when cut edge corrosion begins to occur, it’s important to treat it as soon as possible. Leaving a deteriorating roof too long can cause costly repercussions, as you can see in the example below.

cut-edge-corrosion-damageThe cut edge corrosion has been left to corrode fully through the metal cladding roof sheets and are now beyond repair and require replacement. If the cladding was treated months earlier when the corrosion became apparent, Cladding Coatings could have provided a far more cost effective solution, in the form of their cut edge corrosion treatment.

These roof sheets have been cut out from the roof and new panels have now been inserted. This will have cost 3 times more than it would have done if they had got Cladding Coatings to refurbish it earlier.

If you have detected corrosion on your roof cladding, do not let it get unrepairable. Get in touch for a free site survey to avoid this situation. Save your building and money with Cladding Coatings.
