Why does existing cladding need to be replaced?

After the horrifying Grenfell Tower fire in London, building cladding has become a significant issue for so many high rise buildings across not just London but across the country and all of Scotland. It highlighted an issue with Aluminium Composite Material (ACM) cladding that for a period was a commonly used material for building cladding. The Governments department overseeing the Grenfell disaster have said that the most dangerous forms of ACM cladding are unsafe on buildings of any height.

Across Scotland, there are an incredible number of buildings that still have ACM cladding panels that need to be replaced.

At Balmore, we are one of the most experienced building maintenance contractors in the country.

Cladding Replacement Plans are being accelerated by Government funding that has been put into place to help replace all dangerous cladding systems used on buildings across Scotland.
