Facade Restoration of Metal, Glass or Stone

Facade restoration is most often associated with the preservation of buildings, both historic and modern. In commercial settings within the UK, there are generally several facade materials that you see: glass, metal, stone, or composite facade panels and cladding. Stone materials for building facades can either be manufactured (e.g., concrete) or natural (e.g., sandstone or granite). Natural stone is one of the UK’s oldest building materials and can be traced back to even the aptly-named Stone Age. Concrete, on the other hand, is a composite material created through combinations of aggregates.

Facade cleaning of natural or manufactured stone surfaces is often undertaken using restoration systems like DOFF Steam Cleaning which uses a combination of superheated steam at high temperatures (up to 150°C) and low pressure. This restoration system is generally highly effective when performed correctly by trained professionals, providing a safe and efficient way to restoratively clean the surface without damaging it. Metal is mainly used as the structural framework of modern buildings, but it can also act as cladding to the exterior of a building. As this surface is exposed to the harsher elements of the UK’s weather and climate, it can become dull and damaged.

A company specialising in cladding cleaning can restore a facade back to its original look and feel, often at a fraction of the cost of replacement or even respraying. Facade restoration is also the most environmentally friendly option compared to total replacement, so the cleaning and restoration of your facade should always be the first consideration.

By focusing on the restoration of your building’s exterior-facing glass, metal cladding and stone facades, you are saving money, time and effort compared with total replacement.
