The type of cladding will depend on the purpose of the building in question and where it is: if you’re in an area with a high amount of rainfall, for example, you’ll want something that won’t rust easily or get covered in mould.
Obviously, when builders, architects and property managers decide which sort of cladding to use they will need to consider how stable and durable the material is. But all buildings need maintenance, and part of caring for cladding is keeping it clean and in a good condition. This means looking for any damage done from the environment or elements, any wear or tear and cleaning off any pollution, grime or plants that may naturally move in over time. Getting the right cladding cleaners is really important: they’ll need to assess the material the cladding has been made of and then work out how to remove the dirt without damaging cladding.
Specialist cladding cleaning often involves steam to ‘wash’ off any outer coating of dirt and then spraying the newly clean cladding with an anti-fungal treatment to keep it in a good condition for longer. The cladding may then require new layers of paint or lacquer to improve the appearance. Cleaning a building’s cladding is also a good way to make sure that there aren’t any issues with the cladding itself: damage can sometimes be covered and ignored, but the sooner it’s caught and fixed the better.

Working practices and surface preparation methods are adapted to each building and material type, ensuring that the correct methods are followed, and the façade restored with maximum effect and longevity.

Correct surface preparation is vital. We utilise a variety of methods to suit the surface condition to provide a comprehensive surface. The surface is inspected, and corrosion suitably treated before any application is applied. Test locations are created, and adhesion bonds tested over a period to ensure that the coating system performs in line with the recommended guidelines.
We can provide an access solution to any structure for building inspection, surface corrosion, testing, and treatment suitability using a variety of methods such as rope access, cradle or MEWPs to access the locations for cleaning, treatments, and respraying or surface decoration.
The work provided by Building Transformation was excellent. Their product and building exteriors knowledge is detailed, comprehensive and practically applied to the client’s needs. They offer a professional, detailed, high-quality and customer- focused service which meets the short, medium and long-term needs of the client, and provides practical, cost-realistic advice.
Customer service is paramount to Building Transformation and they invested vast amounts of time in providing me with a programme to facilitate what was a very complex and time-specific programme of work for the site. The quality and level of support provided by Building Transformation is priceless to any client/contractor.
The approach and advice on setting up the works at the Wolverhampton Civic Centre were first-class. Building Transformation’s attention to detail was excellent and the RAMS were followed meticulously to every detail. We were delighted with the works and service, and would not hesitate to use them again, nor hesitate to recommend them to any organisation.
A 200,000 sq. ft., four-storey leisure venue in the heart of Nottingham city centre surrounded by major traffic routes needed work to be done overnight to deal with the traffic issues, while the site remained open throughout. The project took around three weeks to complete and went exceptionally well; the Building Transformation staff were flexible and able to work round dynamic operational issues. The clean was of a high standard and has made a significant different to the image of the building. A very difficult job done well.
I am very satisfied in the manner the job was conducted. Also the level of cleaning provided and attention to detail is much appreciated.
I am using Building Transformation’s work to help justify façade restoration works around our business. They have produced excellent presentations on what can be achieved and is a brilliant piece of informed marketing that is helping slowly win people over in our business to take façade cleaning and restoration more seriously.
Needless to say Building Transformation is a name that is now becoming known and respected.
Building Transformation gave great communication throughout our projects.
It will be my pleasure to recommend Building Transformation.
Just signed off the job with Richard. Myself, the bosses and the tenant all are very pleased with the work. It definitely looks rejuvenated just a case of painting the concrete window surrounds in the new year to finish it off. Have found your company and staff very professional and helpful which has facilitated a project with minimal inconvenience and disruption to our in situ tenants.
I had a walk around today with Dave and am impressed with the work so far. Dave and the team have done a great job.
I’d certainly love to work with you in the future so perhaps before the job is completed we could look at what opportunities there are for the future.
At this stage, from my point of view your team has been extremely professional, informing us of what was happening at all times and most importantly no disruption whatsoever to our guests and business.
We are very satisfied in the manner the job was conducted. The operatives on site were very professional and communicated to us at all times.
The team at Building Transformation understood our challenge of finding a facade cleaning solution that would initially restore the glazing to its original state, protecting our building for years to come. Through intelligent and thorough testing right through to the full restoration of Block D, we have been very satisfied with the project management and delivery of the cleaning programme.
Thank you for all the work that you carried out in cleaning the outside of our school. We are delighted with the results. You have managed to completely remove heavy staining from many areas around the building.
We found you extremely easy to work with: your quote was reasonable, you carried out the work quickly and you were very flexible in terms of timings.
We will definitely be working with you again! Your engineers were very polite and accommodating every time they visited site and have done a first class job. I will be recommending Building Transformation to everyone!
