Coverclad Services were called out to undertake storm damaged emergency asbestos barge repairs in Birmingham, to an industrial unit over the festive season. The rear yard elevation barge flashings were rattling and lifting in the high winds, and in danger of blowing off.

Upon arriving to site, we installed temporary braces to the wall cladding and secured down the asbestos cement barges to ensure they would not blow off in the wind. Then, following the emergency repair, we were instructed to measure up and fabricate new barge flashings to encapsulate the existing asbestos cement barges as a more permanent fix, also helping to improve the aesthetic look of the unit.

Photos from the storm damaged asbestos barge repairs in Birmingham are below. If you require an emergency callout then please contact us on 07976 726770. Alternatively you can send us a message.
