Signs of deterioration to look out for on your industrial wall cladding

Industrial wall cladding deteriorates over time, so knowing what to look for can help resolve issues before they worsen.

Your industrial building houses your business and represents your company; therefore, it is essential that the building not only looks good from the outside but also protects the contents inside.

Over time cladding can start to deteriorate and requires maintenance and refurbishment to keep it looking good and performing well.

Numerous factors impact the performance of your industrial wall cladding. Let’s take a look at some key areas that you need to watch out for:

Peeling and flaking

In the UK, we have ever-changing weather that can impact your industrial wall cladding. Constantly changing temperatures can cause metal cladding to contract and expand, causing the industrial wall cladding coating to peel and flake. This leaves the metal cladding uncoated and exposed to the elements, leading to further and more severe deterioration.

The sun’s UV rays can impact industrial wall cladding coatings and cause problems. The UV rays can cause the cladding coating to become brittle and fade, making it more susceptible to damage. Faded cladding also doesn’t give the best first impression to existing or potential clients and customers.

Cracks & holes

Cracks and holes can appear in industrial metal cladding for several reasons. Accidental damage, the weather and general wear and tear are all reasons your metal cladding can have holes or cracks. The bare exposed metal of the cladding sheeting will corrode very quickly. Again holes and cracks should be addressed and repaired as soon as the problems are spotted.

Cut edge corrosion occurs when the cut edge on the metal cladding sheeting is insufficiently coated. This causes the factory coating on the metal cladding sheeting to peel back and delaminate. Cut edge corrosion can happen due to any of the other factors mentioned.

Dirt and debris

Whilst dirt and debris build-up can’t directly cause your cladding to deteriorate; it can mask a multitude of problems. Not only that, but it looks unprofessional and scruffy. Regular planned maintenance and cladding cleaning can ensure your metal cladding stays looking professional and performs well.

What can you do?

Whilst you can’t constantly be keeping check of every inch of your building, it is essential to review and assess its condition regularly, particularly in times of bad weather where damage is more likely to occur. You need to be aware and keep an eye out for the problems that occur so that you can treat them quickly and efficiently before issues worsen and the refurbishment or even cladding replacement work becomes more costly.

Regular planned maintenance can also ensure that problems with your industrial wall cladding aren’t missed and can be dealt with immediately.

If your industrial wall cladding looks dirty and is covered in debris, cladding cleaning will remove any dirt and debris, revealing what the condition of the cladding is like underneath. If your wall cladding is showing signs of deterioration, wall cladding coating can help refresh your industrial wall cladding to make it look brand new. If there are areas of cut-edge corrosion that need addressing, there are specific treatments and systems designed specifically for targeted repairs of cut-edge corrosion.

Spotting problems early and dealing with them fast can help prevent costly cladding replacement works.
