Repairs to sandwich panels

Damaged sandwich panels simply don't look very professional. On top of that, damage can lead to leaks and reduced insulation and protective properties. That way, the materials below the panels may suffer damage, too. As such, it's a good idea to repair this damage.

We specialise in repairing a variety of damage to sandwich panels and profile sheeting, and have been doing so for years for leading suppliers and contractors and on behalf of insurers and building owners. Our expert, committed employees can repair virtually any damage to sandwich panels by well-known global suppliers and manufacturers, such as Kingspan, Joris Ide, Falk, Arcelor, etc. We have developed repair methods that allow us to invisibly repair façade and roof panels on-site. As a result, you won't need to replace them, which will save you money.

When it comes to damage repair techniques, Van Heemskerk is a master. We only work with high-quality, proven paint systems, derived, among others, from the automotive sector. Van Heemskerk has proven itself as a leading expert in damage repairs to company buildings and properties.

I have a dent in my panel, can this be fixed invisibly?

In most cases, the damage can be fixed “virtually invisibly”. That is to say: if someone doesn't know where the panel was damaged, they'll never be able to find the repaired spot! Of course, this does depend on local factors and the condition of the substrate.

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.

Van Heemskerk is an expert in mixing the most suitable colour during repairs. We strive for customer satisfaction by making our repairs “virtually invisible!”

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.

What does it cost?

It is hard to estimate the costs in advance. They depend on a variety of factors, such as size, lighting, accessibility, paint type and local circumstances.

The price is also affected by the costs of replacement, dismantling and removal of the surrounding construction, which can cause damage, leaks etc. Sandwich panels are often attached with hidden fasteners and cannot simply be removed. On top of that, new deliveries almost invariably differ in colour, which means that repairs and spraying are often a more affordable option.
