Comprehensive guarantees are supplied as standard on all treatments installed by our team.

What is Cut Edge Corrosion?

Cut edge corrosion develops 99% of the time on cladded roofs and in some instances on vertical cladding panels.

Over time the machine cut edges on the sheets are the most vulnerable to the natural elements.

The process begins with the Plastisol or PVC coating peeling back from the metal substrate, exposing it to air and water causing erosion.

Roof Treatments by Cut Edge Corrosion Specialists

The areas where cut edge corrosion can be commonly found is on leading gutter edges, intermediate lap joint and ridge and hip joints.

Overlapped joints remain especially vulnerable due to the effects of capillary reaction drawing sulphur contaminated rainwater into the joint causing the double hazard of 'topside' and 'reverse' side corrosion.
