Over time, the outside of buildings begins to deteriorate. This may happen as the materials age, or due to pollution, fire or water damage. We offer external refurbishment and facade refurbishment so you can keep your properties looking their best and safe for those who use them.

So, what is external refurbishment? It can take many forms. You may want any of the following things fixed: chimney stacks, gutters, roofs, pipes, fire escapes and external staircases, fences and maintenance to any plants growing on your building. As any building maintenance worker will tell you, all of these things need regular checks to make sure the building is safe.

Some people will want their buildings modernised, and others will want to uphold the building’s historic features. Refurbishment often includes adding or updating parts of a building: for example, someone owning a Tudor cottage might want to keep the thatched roof but add in modern gutters to keep the place dry and pleasant.

To completely modernise the outside of a building will require cooperation between refurbishers, builders, architects and owners. When this happens, buildings can gain all kinds of useful amenities such as accessible entrances for wheelchair users, or balconies for people looking to make the most of their space.

Most importantly, though, we need to keep buildings safe. Whether they’re for homes or businesses, buildings need to meet certain codes and have things like fire escapes and sturdy structures. External refurbishers may need to work with internal refurbishers to make sure that everything runs smoothly and safely for the benefit of all involved. Any damage or negligence could result in anything from lawsuits to loss of life. In less drastic cases, a lack of refurbishment may cause leaks and subsequent damage to the property through roofs with missing tiles or insufficient or broken gutters.
