Rope Access Façade
Issue: External Coating Bubbling and Peeling.
Description: External coating bubbling and peeling occurs when the coating film has lifted away from the underlying surface due to a lack of adhesion, and or moisture entrapment between the coating and the substrate.
In order to fix the problem completely the extent and causes of the problem need to be clearly identified, the causes removed, and the old coating stripped back to sound substrate.
Issue: Façade Cracks.
Description: Shrinkage or thermal movement in render or masonry can cause cracks to form in the render. Cracks often appear around windows and doors due to these being weaker areas that expand.
Any surface cracks can cause early aging of the render system and if left unattended become bigger cracks that require restoration work. Any cracks identified should be sealed to avoid moisture ingress to prevent any structural issues over time.
Issue: Expansion/Control Joints.
Description: A expansion joint – or control joint – is a flexible joint which allows the concrete to expand and contract as/when the temperature changes, preventing stress to the facade which can lead to cracking and water ingress.
Over time, the expansion joint – or control joint can shrink or fail allowing water ingress to enter the building substrate causing internal damage and blistering of the external coating.
Issue: Cement Render Delamination.
Description: Façade cement render delaminate can be caused by a number of reasons. Incorrect mix of sand, cement and bonding agent during installation, moisture entrapment between the render and the substrate, building movement, etc.
All loose and drummy delaminating cement render needs to be removed back to a sound firm level. The cause needs to be identified and rectified before and the area is prepared well and the reinstating of the new render.
