Mechanical damage during the construction phase
It is important to understand that minor scratches, dents and scuffs could occur during the construction phase. These might happen whilst the cladding panels or profiles are being unpacked, during hoisting, whilst being erected or indeed by others after the cladding works have been completed.
Good control of site practices will limit the amount. Whilst the area affected by the physical damage / paint repair (where applicable) will no longer be covered by the original pre-finished steel guarantee, all areas outside the actual area of repair will continue to be covered.
