Coverclad Services were contracted to install a wall overclad system to an existing brick built wall in Birmingham, to the front elevation of a single storey unit on behalf of the principle contractor. The end client wanted to present a more polished and professional front facing office for their customers.

The wall furniture was removed prior to us commencing work e.g. CCTV, lighting, PIR systems and air conditioning units. Our task was to install a top hat grid system to the existing brickwork, and to supply and fix single skin curve wall profile wall cladding (in silver colour) to form the new front elevation. We flashed around the windows and doors and installed all new weather flashings, trims, top barges and base sill in black colour to frame it out at the request of the client.

Overall the works took one week to complete. Photos are below. If you require Birmingham cladding installers then please contact us on 01384 573088. Alternatively you can send us a message or telephone us on 07976 726770 if you are in need of an emergency callout.
