Wall Cladding Coating
If your building is over 25 years old its probably in need of some wall cladding coating
Faded, flaking and rusted cladding
Pre-finished corrugated steel cladding is a flexible and adaptable surface skin for commercial buildings. Its incredibly robust and long lasting considering how thin each sheet of steel cladding actually is. As little as 0.4mm in some cases. However, its not a ‘maintenance-free’ material. Like any other building component it does need some routine care and attention.
Faded, flaking and rusted cladding should not be ignored. Wall cladding maintenance, when carried out to manufacturer specifications, usually only involves a few coatings of paint. Wall cladding coating is a relatively fast process. In most cases our cladding maintenance services are hassle-free. They are carried out without affecting the normal operations of a building. So don’t put it off, get your cladding inspected today to prevent problems with it tomorrow.
All problems great and small
Believe it or not, the colour of your cladding affects its lifespan, or rather the lifespan of the coating. Brighter colours usually fade more quickly than darker colours. When corporate identity and branding is crucial faded or chalking cladding is a problem. Equally when compliance with lease repairing covenants is required, an early over-paint will usually be necessary.
Fading and chalking usually precedes flaking. When you have flaking paint your problems are beginning to snowball. Corrugated steel is an excellent and very popular building material, as we explain here. Its amazing at protecting building interiors from the elements. Just imagine what would happen if those corrugated steel cladding sheets started to peel away and disappear. Its the same relationship with paint and cladding. Take away the paint and the cladding becomes vulnerable and susceptible to corrosion.
When a coating begins to chalk and breakdown, over-painting becomes absolutely necessary. First and foremost carrying out wall cladding coating will prevent exposure of the metal substrate to weathering and subsequent corrosion. A loss in the weather protection on a building’s structure exposes its interior to the elements.
Wall cladding coating services explained
Over-painting cladding will extend the lifespan of steel cladding by at least 10 years. Regular follow-up over-paints will help it last even longer, decades longer. However, to ensure such longevity its important to get the over-paint timing right. The process is much easier when the existing coating is still intact, isn’t flaking and does not require removal.

3 Step Wall Cladding Coating Process
- Survey – inspection and assessment to identify an appropriate solution.
- Preparation – in most cases a high-pressure wash down of the area to be re-coated and removal of any loose paint using abrasives. Any areas of bare metal must be spot treated with an appropriate primer before application of the topcoat.
- Coating – wall cladding coatings are applied by spray or roller application in one or two coats to the required thickness specified by the manufacturer.
