Coverclad Services were contracted to supply and fix new plastisol coated metal wall cladding system in Tipton, West Midlands. The unit was in poor condition and needed renovating and tidying up for increased retail value.

Our task was to remove the existing damaged wall cladding along two elevations (gable end and long front elevation with canopy above), then re-align / replace underlying cladding rails where needed and install new 34/1000 profile 0.7mm plastisol coated single skin metal wall cladding in dark sky-blue colour. As part of the works we also installed a new barge flashing to the gable end, corner flashings and jambs to both elevations, and new (previously missing) base sills to the correct drip detail. The client installed their own new personnel door.

Due to bad weather the works spanned over two weeks. Photos are below. If you require wall cladding installers in Tipton then please call 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.
