Refurbishing Military Buildings – Why Cladding Coatings Can Help

When we think of refurbishing metal clad structures, we generally picture warehouses, logistic centres, and industrial units. However, Cladding Coatings has also worked on numerous aircraft hangers and military buildings across the UK. Military bases across the country boast a wealth of metal clad buildings, and opting for refurbishment instead of replacement is a great way to stretch the budget. This is why Cladding Coatings has been brought in to help. Let’s take a closer look at how we approach these large-scale projects, and how our experienced team carries out wall and roof coatings to a high standard while complying with strict guidelines.

Refurbishing military buildings is no small feat. Before we enter the site, we need to go through a lot of planning and preparation to ensure the security of the base is not compromised. We also need to follow a set of strict guidelines to ensure our work doesn’t hamper normal operations at the site. So, when we get to work on these buildings, we are well-prepared and have a systematic approach.

One of the most common issues we come across on military buildings is cut edge corrosion on roofs and gutters. This issue can be exacerbated by the harsh weather conditions, and it’s crucial to address the issue properly to prevent any further damage. We also find walls deteriorating due to general wear and tear, and the aging buildings need recoating to extend their life. Our teams are experienced in carrying out wall and roof cladding coating using high-performance paints that offer durability and longevity.

We can use specialist coating systems to re-spray the cladding after completing cut edge corrosion repair work. For gutters, if the corrosion is extensive, it is possible to reline them without the need for expensive and disruptive replacements.

When working on military buildings, we understand the importance of complying with the strict guidelines and procedures. Our team is trained in site safety, security, and protection, before entering the site. We communicate with the site manager in advance to ensure we have everything we need to plan the job efficiently. This helps us to stay on schedule and deliver our services effectively without compromising the safety of the site.

Cladding Coatings has worked with several aircraft hangers and military buildings across the UK. With our expertise and experience, we have helped to extend the lifespan of these structures and maintain their appearance. We have worked on large-scale and challenging projects, but our commitment to excellence and customer satisfaction always shines through.

At this aircraft hanger in Greenham, we had initially carried out a detailed survey as the landlord had noticed some delamination, this weathering and speed of deterioration was likely due to the dark colour used. We also found cut edge corrosion on the sheets and near the roof lights. Our teams were able to repair the corroded areas and respray the roof and walls which provided long term protection. See the full case study here.
