Cut edge corrosion Repairs

Units 1-15 at Alston Court Industrial Estate in Ipswich were looking old and tired. The plastisol coated cladding was starting to delaminate and the existing roof cladding had extensive rust and corrosion causing various leaks. In total, 4,000sqm of cladding and roof panels required cut edge corrosion repairs.


Cladding sheets are coated when they are manufactured to protect them from the elements. When these sheets are cut to size, the edges aren’t re-coated, leaving them exposed. Over time, the edges of the cladding sheets are likely to rust. This can lead to leaks and eventually lead to the cladding panels needing to be replaced. Professional cut edge corrosion repairs can prolong the lifespan of the panels – providing a much more cost effective alternative to cladding replacement.

Cut edge protection

The project at Alston Court took 6 weeks to complete in line with the bespoke Rustoleum cladding coating specification. We started by pressure washing all roof sheets; removing any cut edge corrosion which was then stripe coated with Rustoleum Noxyde anti corrosive coating. All edges of the roof sheets were taped using the Rustoleum Noxyde tape system, and the entire roof was given 2 coats of Rustoleum Noxyde.

Cladding coating

The cladding was prepared using the same methods and finished with an additional decorative coat of Rustoleum Metal Cladding Topcoat in the clients desired colour scheme.

10-year warranty

The surveyors and client were exceptionally pleased with the final result and a 10-year warranty was issued for the project by Rustoleum. This project can also be seen on the Rustoleum website here.

What our customers say…

Ed Stimpson – Tesla Engineering

The two guys did a fantastic job and we’re very pleased with the new look of the building.

They were both very polite and professional, both worked safe on site in the MEWP and cordoned off the working at height areas as the moved across the building, I’d welcome them back any time to work with us again.

It’s nice to have contractors onsite that are happy in their work with a great eye for detail that deliver their best finish possible.

Simon Vince – Partnerships for Renewables

Professional, friendly and very helpful company and guys to deal with. We bought an old industrial unit with an asbestos roof with internal guttering system that are prone to leaking – the advice and specialist solutions Cladspray provided were not only cost effective but very practical and have extended the useful life of the roof at least another 20 years – excellent company, service and support I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them!
