Renovation and Recladding
Because of its high strength, light weight, and ability to reproduce the look of a wide variety of cladding materials, GFRC panels are ideally suited for recladding the exterior facades of existing buildings.
GFRC panels can replace or be installed directly over deteriorating masonry, stucco, EIFS, terracotta, or other claddings, in many cases without even removing the old cladding. The lighweight cladding superimposes minimal loads on the existing structure, often obviating the need to reinforce the building foundation or structure.
Installation of panels can often be done from the outside of the building without disturbing the existing tenants or functions of the building.
Several examples of “BEFORE” and “AFTER” recladding installations are illustrated above.
