Sensitive building façade cleaning
We clean, restore and refurbish external building facades, working with modern, commercial, tall and challenging to access building structures to ensure that the building fabric reflects the clients vision, brand values whilst paying particular attention to ensure its condition is protected for the future. Stone, concrete, cladding, brick or render, we have the experience and expertise to provide you with the solutions and information you need to clean, restore, repair, paint and pro-actively maintain your building façade.
Façade cleaning and building restoration will often take place whilst the building is in full use, programmes adjusted to meet onsite and tenant’s requirements or delivered through the night where required. Due to the type of buildings we clean, their height, shape and size, we design and implement building cleaning, façade repair or external building painting solutions, which use a variety of building access methods such as temporary cradles, façade hoist, scaffolding and abseiling methods, cleaning, repairing, stabilising and painting building facades constructed of concrete, brick, cladding, render or stone building facades.
We specialise in the following façade maintenance services for modern commercial buildings:

Surveyors, local authorities, building owners and managers all use us to help create a bespoke façade refurbishment solution. Along with cleaning and restoring building facades we also provide liquid applied roofing works to help water proof podium decks, balconies and roofs for a complete external building refurbishment solution.
Modern buildings are constructed with a wide variety of materials which need specialist façade care, cleaning and maintenance, each material needs a different solution to enhance its life-span. Often constructed with little or no clearly defined façade access and maintenance plan, beautifully designed and intelligently engineered building facades are often inaccessible, leaving materials to weather and decay. This in return leaves little hope to be effectivity or pro-actively inspect, understand, build value around façade cleaning action plans or maintenance required in the future to maintain it.
As modern architecture pushes the boundaries of material design and performance, the need to take greater care of the building fabric increases. We use hot water cleaning, low pressure cleaning, steam cleaning methods to restore, preserve and maintain soiled building façades and exteriors on old, modern and new buildings through-out the UK. We only sensitively clean external buildings, removing staining such as carbon, traffic film, effluence staining, leeched salts, organic matter, environmental pollution and paint from your stone, concrete, brick, rendered or cladded building façade.

21st Century Façades: Breathing Life into Urban Landscapes
The urban environment has changed enormously since the majority of building maintenance concerns were focused on more traditional masonry structures, materials, pollution levels, weather patterns – even the height of most buildings are completely different to a hundred years ago. This book illustrates how Building Transformation’s methods breathe new life, energy and vitality into building skins and cities.
