Either by us following designs produced by your engineers or by using our own design team we can create whatever openings or alterations you require.
Steel frame restoration and refurbishment
Over time, steel frames can suffer from wear and tear, which can lead to damage and deterioration. Steel frame restoration and refurbishment involve restoring the steel frame to its original condition or upgrading it to meet modern standards.
Our team at Steel Frame Repairs can provide a range of restoration and refurbishment services, including:
– Painting and coating
– Renovation and modernization
– Insulation and energy efficiency upgrades
– Refurbishment of steel frame houses
Rust can be a major problem for steel frames, as it can weaken the structure and lead to safety hazards.
Some steel frame houses suffer from condensation based corrosion, particularly in the loft space, because of a lack of ventilation. We retrofit ventilation in whatever form best suits your property. Other associated works include upgrading insulation, replacement roof coverings and installation of vapour barriers.
