Alucobond restoration services go beyond cleaning and will return your building’s good looks without replacing the panels. You’ll save time and money thanks to our decades of experience restoring aluminum panels. It is possible for us to offer Alucobond restoration services at a fraction of replacement or painting costs.
Why You Need Alucobond Restoration Services
We recommend cleaning the Alucobond panels regularly to maintain your building’s aesthetic. It is a good idea to have your building’s facade professionally cleaned to prevent the accumulation of corrosive deposits. The frequency and method of Alucobond cleaning depend on your commercial building’s local environment and other conditions. This will help to preserve the material’s value and lifespan. Even though rain might wash away some of the dirt, it can leave deposits and mold intact.
Common problems you might encounter with your commercial building’s Alucobond panels include:
- Leaching from improperly sealed stone or precast
- Air pollutants like exhaust causing grime or stains
- Biological growth such as mold and mildew
None of these stains can be removed from Alucobond with standard cleaning methods.
How Presto Performs Alucobond Panel Restoration Services
Fortunately, you can return your building’s metal panels to their optimal appearance with one of two effective restoration services:
- Pigmented or clear coatings
True to their name, abrasive methods scratch the surface of the aluminum panel. Most of the time the scratches are so fine they’re invisible to the naked eye. Presto uses our own specially designed and thoroughly tested products for this process. We also test to ensure the desired results are achieved on a small out of sight panel before working on the entire building. The test area results are then compared to untreated panels to determine how much better the restored panels look than they would with metal panel cleaning alone.
If our Alucobond restoration services don’t produce the hoped-for results, there are evident scratches, or the panel’s coating’s been worn down to the bare metal, we then apply clear coatings designed to hide a wide variety of coating damages. Presto’s specially-formulated and high-performing silicone and acrylic coatings offer long-lasting protection on all metal surfaces. The results are typically beautiful!
In cases where the factory coating has failed all the way through (or if the coating was previously restored and is now showing the aluminum surface below), the only workable solution is to use new pigmented coating on the metal panels. The downside to this solution is that it typically calls for future maintenance and or reapplication sooner than bare panels do.
We know that years of dirt, other pollutants, and UV damage can degrade the material’s coating surface. When we take on an Alucobond cleaning and restoration job, we performance test the suggested process before taking on the entire building. This way, you can compare what the panels look like with cleaning alone and with a restoration procedure. Building managers and owners are often surprised at how restoration services can make the panels look like new.
If your building’s metal panels have visible scratches or if the panel’s coating has been worn down to the bare metal, we recommend a clear coating that hides a wide variety of surface damage. Presto’s proprietary coatings are high-performance silicone and acrylic products that give metal surfaces durable, long-lasting protection. You’ll be amazed at the beautiful results!
