Client Testimonials

We worked with Vulcan on balcony remediation project in Whitechapel London using over 4000 linear metres of VulcaBar. Vulcan’s meticulous planning and precision took the burden out of what was a complex job and eased the installation process. Vulcan did a survey along with ourselves which dramatically the amount of on-site cutting. Vulcan created a spreadsheet for areas and numbers of material including lengths with all quantities of ancillary items and spares. The accuracy of the product and packaging was outstanding. Vulcan informed us throughout production and all deliveries arrived as promised – they even started a WhatsApp group so all parties were connected at all times. Vulcan have a great understanding of their products and the structures we were installing to. Highly recommended.
