Plastic coated sheets

Why is the plastic coating on one of our straw sheds peeling off ? The shed is 15 years old and has just started falling off this last 6 months.


Ours looked just like yours. What direction does that face? We've just 're-clad' the building that had faded and peeled badly after 20 years. South and west facing elevations were poor and patchy peeling, north and east were ok really but we did the lot + insulation
Strangely, as @S J H says above, 2 out of 3 cladders that quoted said the original was painted sheet not 'plastisol' -although the architect that had signed off the shed had signed it off as 'plastisol'
New sheet came from Southern Sheeting - it was 'Joris Ide' not plastisol and the C200 Grade - see link and select C200
Also we treated all the cut edges with Jenolite anti rust paint.......

I don't think I'll be here in another 20+ years to see what's happened this time :unsure:


We have a shed that's about 10 years old that has done the same, the bits facing the sun is the worst, what is the best stuff to recoat it with ?
