Building Transformation provides flexible masonry repair services for commercial and domestic properties. Whether you need to fix a few cracks in a brick wall or repair an entire building’s masonry, we offer tailor-made solutions to meet each client’s requirements.
After all, the condition of a building’s masonry, stonework, and brickwork varies signficantly from each property. Newer buildings often have minor damage while older buildings require more extensive repairs, so different solutions are required to ensure they are well maintained.
All building repairs are completed by experienced tradesmen with full accreditation and licencing. This ensures complete compliance with all on-site health and safety regulations for commercial properties seeking masonry repairs.
Most properties throughout the country are constructed with masonry such as bricks, limestone, sandstone, and concreate. These materials are incredibly strong and durable, offer great insulation, while also being flexible in design.
However, all stone, masonry, and brickwork eventually deteriorate over time, meaning repairs are necessary at one point. There are many causes of damage to masonry, stone, and brickwork, from general aging and wear and tear to low quality workmanship during construction.
In any case, it is important to conduct appropriate masonry, stone, and brick repairs once they develop. Doing so helps more serious issues developing over time, ensuring you do not need to pay for expensive and unnecessary repairs.
Repairing brickwork and masonry ensures the building’s structural integrity remains intact while also improving the overall appearance of the property. Walls remain waterproofed, brickwork looks better than ever, and you may even find the value of the property increases due to the repairs.
All repair services begin with a survey of the building masonry. We analyse the surface materials for signs of damage, such as cracks, holes, and crumbling sections, allowing us to identify what repair solutions are necessary.
We offer bespoke masonry repair solutions for all stone and brick materials. This includes minor and major brickwork, masonry, and stone repairs. So, whether it is a small crack or a crumbling wall, our services have you covered.
Processes differ depending on the extent of the repairs needed. For example, if there is minor damage to the surface then small repairs using matching materials and render is possible.
For more serious issues, such as defective materials or improper construction, we may need to conduct a full replacement of masonry materials. In this case, we meticulously repair and restore the masonry to its original appearance, blending seamlessly with the rest of the building.
We also restore structural integrity of eroded materials where possible, avoiding the need to conduct complete replacements. This involves reinforcing existing masonry with structural fixings to ensure it integrity remains intact.
Here is an overview of some of the main types of masonry and stone repair services we offer:
• Masonry Repairs and Replacement
• Sandstone Repairs and Replacement
• Limestone Repairs and Replacement
• Concrete Repairs and Replacement
• Brickwork Repairs and Replacement
• Brickwork Repointing
We create bespoke traditional façade and masonry repair solutions projects with a maximum focus to match the repairs to the current fabric with minimal impact on the surroundings. No matter the façade materials type, our tailored solutions fit the specific needs of your property.
From hotels, councils and commercial property owners, we provide façade repair solutions to modern and heritage properties with best-practice solutions, ensuring a robust repair match to the existing structure. Through sympathetic building restoration solutions in line with the philosophy of Historic England, our skilled craftsmen can restore sandstone, limestone, brick and terracotta.
Identifying the problematic areas of the building substrate, followed by the correct treatments and repairs is the key. Repairing masonry, stone and concrete structures requires a thorough understanding of the cause and effects of material failure. We specialise in retaining the value of materials, working with in-situ rather than replacing to help manage costs and impact to the building. Removal of the failed, weak, and defective materials and masonry, repair matching concrete, and providing repointing solutions (whether it is flush, weather struck, recessed, or a bucket handle finish).
On completion of the repairs, we apply a surface impregnator and protective coating to help protect the surface and internal steel from future corrosion. Facade, roof and chimney repairs are undertaken by scaffold, abseiling, cradle or MEWP access, a solution for historic, modern and difficult to access structures. If you are looking for a masonry repair solution that fits with your current building’s design, contact our team of experts today. We will review your current structure and help source the correct details and solutions for your project.

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. The Building Transformation staff were flexible and able to work around dynamic operational issues completing the project within three weeks.
May & Co have worked with Building Transformation on a number of projects which have included external building cleaning and refurbishment. They provided a great service, supported by the high level of documentation from the initial quotation to books and industry-related guidance, all relevant to our project.
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 win people over in our business to take façade cleaning and restoration more seriously.
Building Transformation is always mindful of the environments they are working in and take the time to understand the restrictions of each site; whether they be physical or due to the client’s day to day activities. They are extremely proactive and ensure that any issues are flagged to a client immediately, and when doing so always make sure a solution is provided. I couldn’t recommend Building Transformation more highly.
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.
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.
