Coverclad Services were instructed to investigate reported water ingress through an isolated area of Kingspan wall cladding in Wolverhampton at an engineering manufacturing centre. The water ingress was suspected to be coming through the gasket seals into the office building.
Our approved Kingspan installers were dispatched to site for one day following heavy rainfall. We removed the top cappings and four of the Kingspan composite panels to expose the steel and parapet for investigation.
Although we found several faults / areas of concern with the existing Kingspan installation (which may have contributed to the volume of water ingress being experienced on-site) we did not believe the wall cladding faults could have led to / been the main contributing factor to the volume of water ingress being experienced into the office. It was our opinion that the flat roof above the wall cladding concerned should be investigated further under torrential rain conditions.
We reinstated the Kingspan wall cladding and top cappings, with new gaskets as per recommended installation specifications plus mastic seals as an extra precaution and presented our report to the client. Photos are below. If you are in need of approved Kingspan installers then please contact us on 01384 573088. Alternatively you can send us a message or contact us on 07976 726770 if you are in need of an emergency callout.
