We’re passionate. We’re expert. And we can make your world a different place
We clean, restore and refurbish external building façades, working with modern, commercial, tall and challenging to access building structures to ensure that the building fabric reflects the client’s 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 and restore your building.
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 façades constructed of concrete, brick, cladding, render or stone building façades.
We specialise in the following façade cleaning areas:
- Façade cleaning and restoration: Super-heated steam and Nebulous cleaning.
- Poultice application for those troublesome, hard to shift areas of build-up.

Surveyors, local authorities, building owners and managers all use us to help create a bespoke façade refurbishment solution. We are experts at using chemicals in a deliberate and careful way, breaking down and removing particularly bad façade staining.
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 façades are often inaccessible, leaving materials to weather and decay. Our chemical cleaning solutions are designed to be part of a bespoke façade cleaning plan, with all waste managed efficiently and safely.
We sensitively clean external buildings, removing staining such as carbon, traffic film, effluence staining, leached salts, organic matter, environmental pollution and paint from your stone, concrete, brick, rendered or cladded building façade. We know that no one size fits all, so if your façade cleaning project requires chemicals, you can trust us to formulate a strategy that will work.

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.
