For covering the top of a wall or other exterior construction, like a retaining wall, metal coping is a popular option for homeowners in the UK. Kladworx offers high-quality metal coping solutions that are both durable and easy to install. Whether on a new construction site or a residential house, Kladworx site inspections and surveys are conducted to obtain information pertinent to the particular scope of work. Detailed measurements of the aluminium coping, as well as bespoke angles and details, are taken into consideration. In this article, we’ll go over the procedures for adding metal coping.
Preparing the Surface
It’s crucial to check that the surface is clean, level, and debris-free before installing metal coping. To get rid of any debris, dust, or loose material from the surface, use a wire brush or a power washer. Use a level, if necessary, to make sure the surface is even and flat.
Measuring and Cutting the Coping
The wall or other structure where the metal coping will be installed should be measured for length and width. Then the coping should be cut to the correct length and width using a saw or metal cutter. While cutting the metal coping, be sure to put on safety gear such as gloves and goggles.
Installing the Coping
The top of the wall or other structure where the metal coping will be installed should be covered with adhesive. The coping should be placed on top of the adhesive and pressed firmly into position. To attach the coping to the wall or building, use screws or clips, evenly spaced along the length of the coping. Ensure that the screws or clips are flush with the coping’s surface.
Apply a sealant to the coping’s edges after the coping is securely attached to stop water from leaking underneath. Apply the sealant with a caulking gun, then smooth it out with a putty knife. Before using the structure, let the sealant fully dry.
