Leaking glazing systems are so disruptive to the daily operations of commercial buildings. This is why Glazing Leak Ingress Repair is so critical.
Due to the design of many commercial buildings the glazing tends to be located above or within critical high footfall areas and leaks can often cause major health and safety slip risks to members of the public or its tenants.
Glazing systems are reliant on EPDM weather gaskets and sealant to keep them weather tight and serviceable. Their components are susceptible to age and weather-related dilapidation and do have a serviceable lifespan.
It is therefore key to ensure the ongoing maintenance of your glazing system is fully up to date and kept in a serviceable condition. However, we understand that servicing can be omitted. Consequently a glazing system will deteriorate and inhabitants will soon experience a leaking glazing system.
A leaking glazing system can not only occur as a result of lack of maintenance. It can also be as a direct result of previous poor repairs. Either due to inadequate fitting or even from the original design of the glazing system not being completed properly.
