Retail Store Change Over

Cladding Coatings have commenced work on site in July. The building, formally a Homebase store and owned by retail giant Tesco will become a Sports Direct and Wickes store.

In preparation for the work we are in the process of carrying out an adhesion test. The purpose of testing is to ensure that we will be using the best primer suitable for the type of cladding material on this project.

Most of the cladding on the original Homebase store has already been renewed but the client has opted for repainting the sides and rear to keep refurbishment costs down.

The existing cladding on these areas is coated with a PVF2 finish which is very hard and smooth, hence why we are carrying out the adhesion test on this bull nose section which has been replaced.
