Renovation by the addition of new skin over the original external fabric.
Over cladding is extremely popular in the UK and is used extensively on medium and high rise framed buildings. Many of these buildings are 20 to 30 years old and suffer from poor thermal performance and aesthetically look unsightly.
For example, defective seals, spalling concrete and rotting or corroded window frames. An investment in over cladding can bring savings such as improved insulation and extended life, not to mention increase in property value.
