A complete solution for refurbishing your rendered buildings
If you are a surveyor, architect or property manager searching for a range of sensitive and approved render cleaning solutions which will restore your property back to its former lustre (whilst ensuring the long-term integrity of the building fabric is retained), speak to a member of our specialist render restoration team today.
We provide a complete solution for cleaning render, repairing and protecting render along with other building façade materials such as stone, brick, concrete and architectural cladding. Cleaning any building façade is a delicate and sensitive process. With render you must try to limit the cleaning programme and pressures applied to the substrate to help preserves it integrity for the future. Time and time again we see new rendered facades suffocated with algae, over-cleaned and in a state of decay due to poor and generally ill-considered practice, a lack of attention paid to the renders long-term performance.
Managing organic and visually unattractive growth on the rendered façade is simple, plus it reduces the need to clean the building as the treatment targets and removes the root causes of the discoloration and decay on the rendered facade. We apply a product that absorbed into the render and breakdown the algae, lichen and moss spoors if working on a roof by puncturing microorganisms cell walls. It does not interact with the mineral components of self-finished renders and does not contain any compound deleterious to the colouring agents or the surface cohesion. On porous render, the surfactant active will decontaminate deep into the surface porosity by capillary action and can then be treated with a light steam clean to create the final product. If the render is also affected by carbon and environmental pollutants a light, but phased steam clean using 150degree steam is the most effective to help achieve the desired end result.

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, Torik and 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.
