IPC Ltd Liquasil Approved Installers
Liquasil’s cut edge corrosion treatment has been developed by our Chartered Building Surveying practice to overcome the common problem of cut edge corrosion in metalprofile roofs on commercial property.
We appreciate that other systems are available and that there is a long-established procedure to treating cut edge corrosion.
However, our surveyors noticed after inspecting many different metal profile roofs, that the generally accepted methods can actually cause corrosion, rather than solveit.
By actually lifting roof sheets and examining the undersides, it became apparent that roof sheets tend not to rust from underneath and in most cases, the rust is confined to the top of the uppermost sheet.
Consequently, ourbuilding surveyors embarked on a study of older roofs that had previously received cut edge corrosion treatment on overlapping sheets, where the gaps between them had been sealed with a mastic or sealant.
On this previously treated and sealed roof, moisture became trapped, resulting in the extensive rusting of both top and bottom sheets. Still think gap sealing is a good idea?
In most cases, it became apparent that rather than solving the problem of cut edge corrosion, the sealing of the overlapping joints can actually create as many issues as it solves.
The reason is simply that by walking on the roofs, the seal between the roof sheets is often broken, though this break can rarely be seen by the human eye, unless pressure is placed on the roof sheets to identify the break.
Even installers of these systems agree with our analysis and often report that they hear a characteristic “popping sound” of the seal breaking as they walk across the roof during their installations.
The result is that during rainfall,water enters the broken seal through capillary actionand becomes trapped between the upper and lower roof sheet and rust begins to form from underneath. Eventually rust breaks through the original treatment.
Closer examination of these surface rust spots often identifies a much larger rust problem than originally existed with the cut edge corrosion.
Our own tests on previously sealed edge shave consistently shown that water becomes trapped and rust develops from the underside of the roof panels, rusting both top and bottom sheets in the process.
We therefore question the logic of sealing overlapping roof sheets and our discussions with metal lurgists and roofers back up our assumptions.
Consequently, the Liquasil cut edge corrosion treatment system has been designed to treat only the topsheets and not to seal overlapping roof sheets.
This results in a far easier application method, significant material and labour savings and an altogether more robust solution to cut edge corrosion problems.
We do, however, offer an optional gap sealer (lapsil),to satisfy building surveyors who prefer to specify sealing the overlapping roof sheets.
Because Liquasil Ltd is owned by building surveyors, our liquid roofing solutions are designed to actually solve the problems associated with commercial roofs.
The Liquasil Cut Edge Corrosion System is so good, that from November 2016, all installations with a contract value exceeding £10,000 will come with a 12-year latent defects warranty as standard, when installed by a Liquasil Approved Installer.

We recently worked with Gerry and his team at IPC on a project involving the recoating of our indoor car park and loading bay. The job was not without complications as tenants, deliveries and waste management all needed to be accommodated. IPC were totally flexible in helping us to manage the logistics and worked hard to ensure that the project was delivered on time and within budget. We were very pleased with the quality of the work and the way it has helped to transform the area. We are happy to recommend IPC and will be working with them again on future projects.
The finished area was very impressive and to a very good standard. What was more impressive was the "added value" provided by IPC by way of overcoming the significant problems at a challenging time of year so that the area was ready for use on the first day of the new year. Excellent service in every area and highly recommended.
Having searched the web for local floor refurbishment companies we came across a few which included IPC, having asked for quotations from a few and carried out site visits we found the finish from IPC Ltd to be the best option.
Gerry, their project manager came across as very enthusiastic and cost reasonable against other quotations.
We found IPC Ltd to be a very professional company from Diamond Industrial Painting Ltd. Floor coating for ITV Newsquote to completion. They completed the painting of our new studio floor on time, for a competitive price to a very high standard. We would use them again without hesitation.
IPC Ltd.previously undertook works at two blocks that we manage. The service provided was excellent from start to finish and prices were competitive. All works were completed to a high standard and any snagging was dealt with in a timely manner.
We would certainly recommend IPC Ltd
IPC Ltd carried out the painting of a school kitchen for my company the work was completed on time and to a high standard
I was let down badly at the last minute on a commercial exterior painting job by a local firm, when I approached Gerry late on a Friday night for help, he turned out on the Saturday morning, produced a full quotation over the weekend and had a team on site the same week to start the job, in addition to this it was all carried out in dreadful weather conditions
It makes a refreshing change in the day and age to deal with a company as switched on to a customers needs as IPC Ltd.
Give them a try, you won’t be disappointed.
When our 20,000 sq ft retail unit was accidentally filled with smoke IPC Ltd. were able to quickly quote and carry out repainting of surfaces without disruption to our business. Excellent service
During the summer IPC Ltd won a contract to re-decorate the outside of our training centre in Harborne, Birmingham. They completed this large job on time and within the budget, and we have been very happy with the result.
