Colder weather is starting to set in across the UK, and with the official start of Winter only 51 days away, it is time to start preparing your building’s exterior envelope for inclement weather ahead.
We experienced extreme conditions throughout Summer, which brought its own challenges – so, it’s important to be prepared for extreme Winter conditions that may test your buildings and structures.
HS RoofClad’s specialists are here to help and have put together three handy tips for you to consider…
Gutters and Downpipes can quickly become a water ingress issue for your building’s interior and exterior structure during heavy rain and snow.
TIP: consider specialist Gutter Lining to reduce the regularity of maintenance requirements.
An annual Roof Condition Survey will make you aware of any minor problems, before they become major issues – allowing time for remedial actions and repair works where required. Consider incorporating surveys into your PPM schedule.
TIP: some insurance policies will require an annual Roof Condition Survey, so double check your policy to ensure you are within clauses.
Decrease budgetary expenditure by reducing energy spend with an Over Cladding system – constructed over the old facade, correct levels of air circulation are introduced, meaning structures are kept dry and damage free.
