Burglary damage repairs

Burglaries are an absolute nuisance. Strangers have entered your property, valuable items were stolen, and more often than not, your property was damaged in the process. You want to have this damage repaired as soon as possible, of course. You may need an emergency solution first to make sure your property is safe, accessible and resistant to rain, wind and unauthorised individuals once more.

We quickly, professionally and thoroughly repair burglary damage to sandwich panels, sheeting, aluminium frames and doors. We can restore your façade or roof to its original condition. Every day, we work with a variety of materials and suppliers, and our employees have mastered many repair methods.

Van Heemskerk regularly works on behalf of assessment offices and insurers. Our repair methods are highly cost efficient. As such, we have successfully completed a variety of projects both in the Netherlands and abroad.

I have burglary damage to report. Can this be repaired invisibly?
In many cases, the damage can simply be fixed “virtually invisibly”. However, this depends to a large degree on local circumstances, the condition of the surface and prior maintenance. Every day, our experts successfully perform work on both new buildings and buildings older than 30 years, so there is plenty we can do.
What products do you use? Are they the same as the coating on the panels?

9 out of 10 times, panels and profiles feature a coil coating, which is also known as pre-painted steel or aluminium. This could be a colorcoat prisma, PVDF, silicon polyester, or an HPS Plastisol coating, among others. Coil coating is a factory process involving extreme heat. As such, it cannot be applied for repairs.

The products we use are derived from the automotive sector and were specifically designed for repairs to sandwich panels and profiles. The paints seamlessly fit the applied coil coat when it comes to durability and appearance. We are familiar with all types of coating systems and always have the most common colours in stock.

What is the deal with colour differences?

No two colours or buildings are the same. Even if they have the same RAL code or name, every new coil will have a different colour or appearance. This is because most pigments for paints and lacquers are derived from nature, so their properties may differ from shipment to shipment. This phenomenon has an extra dimension in case of metallics, which professionals call “flop”. Flop refers to the way the metallic particles are positioned on the surface. This can result in a darker or lighter effect. It's not unlike a high-pile rug: the colour doesn't change, but you get lighter or darker spots depending on the position of the piles.

Properties and sheeting panels suffer from discolouration over the years. One of our specialisations is “retinting”. This means we use the right pigments to touch up the damage, so it matches the existing colour.

What is your operating area?

We operate both within the Netherlands and abroad. Every day, we perform our activities throughout the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany. However, we also have projects beyond this scope, such as in North and South America and the Middle East.

Do you also repair other materials?

Yes, our service covers a wide range of applications. Please refer to the other parts of this website for more information. This includes, for example, repairs to aluminium frames and doors, as well as composite or wooden constructions. We can usually offer a solution, even though this is not necessarily listed on our site.

Can you implement preventive measures against burglary in sandwich panels?

We can install an anti-burglary panel at the desired height on the inside of the panel. This will discourage future burglars and make breaking significantly harder. When we implement this solution, we will take your preferences, such as colour, size and appearance, into consideration. Contact us for non-binding information on the possibilities!

Can you help me if I want to replace the façade?

We can also replace parts of façades or even entire façades. Van Heemskerk has its own assembly crews that install and renovate sandwich panels and sheeting every day. That way, we take care of everything in-house!

I need a quote for my insurance.

If you contact one of our consultants, we can quickly provide you with a quote that you can submit to your insurer.

I have burglary damage to report. What is the best way to contact you?

It's easiest to contact the regional expert in question via email. You can find more information about this on the right-hand side of this page. Please attach pictures to your request. You can also fill out the online form, and we will contact you as soon as possible.

However, it is difficult to make an accurate assessment based on a picture, so we regularly visit locations throughout the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany. This means we are likely to be able to drop by and take a look at your damage!
