Former Visage Factory, Washington

Hodgson Sayers was appointed to help restore the roofing structure to the former Visage clothing factory.

The roofing structure and guttering was suffering from surface corrosion

Silverstone Building Consultancy managed the project on behalf on the client


  • The building spans 11,000 sq metres
  • The main objective was to treat the corrosion. The areas affected – the gutter and sheet end lapse -were painted with Giromax. This product specifically addresses the treatment of cut edge corrosion at sheet overlaps and edges. The new covering will help to preserve the building for years to come.
  • A team of six worked on the project for a period of eight weeks.
