Winter is here, bringing with it a wide range of extreme weather conditions, including snow, sleet, rain and wind. In the face of these weather conditions it is imperative that every effort is taken to ensure that your curtain walling repairs are up to date.

The primary reason for this is that if curtain walling repair work has not been kept up to date then the coating on it can fail. Besides producing tired and neglected aesthetics, the failure of the curtain walling’s coating can have extremely negative effects for your building. This is because damaged curtain walling no longer forms a barrier between your building and the exterior.  In some scenarios this can result in moisture entering the building, a process known as “water penetration”.

However, water penetration is not just caused by instances of the coating failing. Other factors that can, if left untreated, cause water penetration include the natural build-up of dirt on the curtain walling. Over time, dirt can cause the curtain walling’s coating to fail. Therefore, even if a repair and recoat is not required, regular cleaning of your curtain walling is an excellent protective method to increase its longevity.

In order to avoid water entering your building this winter the best approach is prevention. Therefore, if you suspect that your coating has failed, it is advisable to have all curtain walling recoated and repaired. Many businesses put off this process of due to the perceived financial cost and disruption to business operation that results.

This simply does not have to be the case. Due to the fact that much recoating and repair work can be completed on curtain walling in-situ, the financial cost for such operations is much reduced. In addition, professional curtain walling recoating and repair companies, like ourselves, are able to complete this work outside of your business operation hours. Meaning there is no disruption to your activities resulting from this process.
