Building Transformation provides building restoration and building maintenance services for listed and heritage buildings. Our team of experienced cleaning technicians are fully trained in all aspects of building restoration and maintenance for listed and heritage buildings, with services available for the façade and roofing of these properties.
The UK is home to some of the most incredible historical buildings in the world. Many of these listed and heritage buildings are over 100 years old, showcasing the rich and diverse history of our country. Sadly, many of these buildings have fallen into disrepair, with years of aging taking its toll on the roofs and façade of these structures.
Thankfully, there is hope for these historical buildings and structures. Our goal is to help preserve these cultural landmarks through an external building restoration and maintenance service. Available for the roofing and façade of listed and heritage buildings, we aim to restore and maintain these beautiful buildings so future generations can continue to enjoy them.
Listed and heritage buildings are provided special protections due to their age. These are the oldest structures in the country – some several hundred years old – so they have understandably faced some wear and tear over the years.
Everything from the weather to nearby pollution causes deterioration in these structures, often to the point of disrepair. The exterior of these properties faces most of the damage, with the roofing and façade typically being severely deteriorated.
There are many signs of damage that occur on listed and heritage buildings. For example, organic growth often develops on the exterior surfaces, leaving unsightly stains while damaging the internal structure of the façade.
Similarly, pollution causes unpleasant stains and other types of surface damage, often clearly seen on the façade.
Roofs are at the mercy of the elements, facing constant exposure to rain, wind, sleet, and snow. There is likely organic growth damaging the roof material, which may also be rotted or broken depending on its age.
Simply put, our listed and heritage buildings have faced a lot of wear and tear over the years. To ensure they remain for years to come, eternal building maintenance and building restoration is necessary.
We offer reliable building restoration and maintenance services for listed buildings and heritage properties throughout the country. Available for properties of any age or size, our service is fully compliant with current regulations regarding the maintenance and restoration of listed building.
As each building has its own problems, we offer tailor-made services to accommodate its unique challenges. For some, this could be a simple façade restoration that removes soot and grime from older properties.
Others may require more thorough building restoration, with old and deteriorated materials being completed replaced. A new roof may be required, or restoration of the entire building façade.

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.
