Have you started to notice that the rooflight at your business premises seems to not be working as effectively as it used to? Perhaps you have spotted that it is not letting in as much light as before or that it looks dirty and cloudy? If you have noticed that one of your business premises’ rooflights has fallen into a state of disrepair, then it could be worth considering getting in touch with us to discuss your options
At Tritec, we are proud to be able to offer our customers a range of useful rooflight services, from professional rooflight cleaning and translucent coating to replacement. We understand just how vital a rooflight is to a business premises, which is why when a rooflight begins to no longer function properly, it can cause some serious issues.
When it comes to determining what the ideal option is for your rooflight, the best thing that you can do is contact our skilled and experienced team to do an on-site survey. Our surveys take a comprehensive look at the ‘health’ of your rooflight and determine whether it is repairable and can be effectively restored, or whether it may need to be replaced.
Usually we recommend either a professional cleaning treatment or replacement of the rooflight, however, for customers who have a budget to stick to and cannot afford a replacement at the current time, we also have another option - undergoing a translucent coating treatment. This treatment should help to restore your rooflights to their former glory, improving their appearance and enhancing their functionality.
Did you know that our specialist surveyors find that 80 to 90 percent of all rooflights are able to be repaired and restored rather than being replaced? So booking a specialist on-site survey with us is a must, before making a decision about which route to go down when it comes to your rooflight’s restoration.
If our surveyors have recommended that a translucent coating treatment could be the best option for your rooflight, you are most probably wondering what the benefits of it are, as well as whether it is worth the cost.
The benefit of having a translucent coating treatment put onto your rooflight is the fact that it will enhance it in a range of ways. This tough, high-performance, sealing membrane will enhance the strength of your rooflight and restore its clarity, allowing sunlight to stream into your premise once again.
This specialist sealant comes with a UV coating, which means that the sun’s potentially harmful UV rays are not able to penetrate the rooflight and enter your business premise. It also is guaranteed to increase natural light which will mean that less synthetic lighting will need to be used, and less energy will be lost through heating. It is cost-effective and long-lasting and has the potential to effectively restore a rooflight that has been damaged or fallen into a state of disrepair, without being overly expensive.
Aged GRP Roof light can pose a range of problems when looking for a suitable measure to keep it maintained. When untreated for long periods, the exterior gel coat of the roof can deteriorate to such a degree that the roof lights are exposed and the substrate breaking away. This will make the sheet brittle, easily damaged or perforated and this will ultimately encourage leaks and moss growth. Most significantly, it can seriously compromise your buildings security.
