Cladding inspection and survey is one of our highly demanded abseiling service. Cladding inspection projects are coming up usually when leaking issue experienced, loose and dangerous cladding parts discovered, fire barriers or other details of the cladding system require inspection, expertise and/or repair.

These works can be a part of the planned regular maintenance and cleaning but some emergency works, inspection and repair are inevitable sometimes. Next to our cladding inspection and repair services we provide professional waterproofing and masticing as well, which are general and inseparable parts of any cladding installation and building process. When the original waterproofing or mastic sealing of the cladding do not work properly and let any rainwater getting inside the building structures, then this issue requires professional assistance. These failures of the rainscreen system or waterproofing can cause serious internal structural damages, damp issues or other severe problems what means substantial extra repair cost subsequently. The leaking rainwater can damage internal surfaces, paintwork, carpets, flooring …etc. but the elimination of these issues have to be start externally with the thorough inspection of the rainscreen and cladding system.
