External Redecorations

When the time comes, Spectrum is ready

to restore the exterior of your property.

Good first impressions always count...

and every building deserves to look its

very best, so redecoration is essential for

an aesthetic and protective result.

External Redecoration

In addition to maintaining our increasing the asset value, a complete makeover of the building façade also provides a psychological lift and a feeling of well-being to both the occupants and the surrounding community. Atmospheric pollution, acid rain and pollution from traffic in addition to the degradation of materials on the building façade mean that refurbishment should be considered every 5 years to maintain the buildings aesthetic qualities from the time it was built. When you work with Spectrum, you can trust that your redecoration contractors are meeting the project specifications to the highest standard!

Our External Redecoration Service

Ingrained grime and the chemical effect of pollution from traffic and air quality can soon leave their mark, causing not just discoloration but also damage. When our teams start on a project, they frequently have to work with a range of materials, including steelwork, beams, timber, stone, or cladding, in many different executions and at various stages of damage. Every aspect of the building exterior is covered, from roof to ground level. The age of a building will play a major role in our approach when it comes to achieving a matching effect, especially with historic buildings. Once structural work is assessed, and the project specified, the redecoration teams move in and start repairs and deep cleaning. A good eye for matching colour is an essential skill and we take time and care to get this right, consulting with our clients. Equally when we are replacing stone sections, matching the colour and texture is as important as getting the fit right.

At Spectrum, we work closely with the Building Surveyor or Property Manager, Housing Associations and Local Authorities to assess the work involved and thereby provide a cost -effective scope of works whilst minimising the impact of those works on the surrounding environment. We assist the surveys by providing our rope access teams with camera helmets which are linked to a screen at ground level. With the surveyor in radio contact with the member of the team, he can direct the inspection process. The survey will establish if, in addition to cleaning and perhaps recoating, remedial works is required on the fabric of the building.

This could involve render or stone repair, damaged brick, or concrete, as well as oxidised or stained metallic surfaces. As every building is unique, our vast experience and expertise allow us to provide a bespoke solution for any façade to achieve outstanding results.

Our highly trained IRATA accredited Technicians have the expertise to provide the optimum refurbishment and revival service for Building facades and thanks to our patented equipment we carry this out very cost effectively by eliminating the need for access equipment i.e., scaffolding. Eliminating the need for scaffolding in favour of rope access we not only save money for the client, but avoid the disruption caused by scaffolding to both building occupants and the surrounding community hence reducing the time needed for job completion.

We have many case studies, endorsements, and testimonials from satisfied clients.

On External Redecoration services, we carry out sample test areas to demonstrate the efficacy of our processes so the client can see the expected results which is why you can trust Spectrum to provide the most professional service

Specialist products for redecoration

Once all the repairs and deep cleaning are completed, we are in a position to paint, if required. For flexibility and quality, we primarily use colour matched pigmented silicone resin coating and painting systems. The painting systems we opt for are designed to repel water and be breathable at the same time. The paints come in a wide range of colours and are highly UV resistant and, depending on working environment and general conditions, they can be applied with airless spray or roller. An essential benefit comes from an added constituent, a film preservative which helps protect the façade from further infestation and growth of algae.

Combining Abseiling With Restoration

We have a proven track record in working with all kinds of building structures, of all ages and are adept at working in all challenging and confined spaces. Our no-scaffold policy offers our clients three major benefits.

1. Speed of assessment and then redecoration, with time-saving leading directly to cost-saving

2. No scaffolding so savings can often run into five or six figures

3. The lack of scaffolding is aesthetically desirable for everyone in the area and occupants are spared weeks of reduced natural daylight

To enable surveyors who cannot abseil to inspect work, our teams go up with camera helmets linking to a screen on ground level. The surveyor is in radio contact with the operator, to direct every aspect of the inspection. Many clients, once they have experienced this approach are convinced and converted by its efficiency and practicality on many levels.

What Are External Redecorations?

External decorations involve the review and repair of building details across a façade, deep cleaning using a variety of products and equipment suitable for the substrate, followed by painting or recoating of areas as required. We have the skills and product knowledge to restore all substrates, from damaged sheet metal of all types, to cracked rendering and damaged concrete, brick or stonework. We work with surveyors, local authorities, building owners and managers to deliver bespoke building restoration solutions with minimum impact on the surrounding environment. Before any painting, we undertake structural inspections and other relevant substrate testing along with standard cross hatch testing to ensure that the painting systems will bond to the surface.

Why Might Your Building Require Our External Redecoration Service?

Discoloration, rust damage, gutter leaks and environmental pollution all leave their mark and are not just an eyesore but will cause damage to the substrates eventually leading to structural damage. External redecoration not only improves appearance, but regular redecoration of the outside is important as it helps prevent decay. This particularly applies to external woodwork with windows and doors requiring regular painting or oiling depending on the wood. In older buildings modern paints may not be suitable - lime render and stucco are likely to need special breathable paint such as limewash which is protective but does not trap moisture.

Each project is unique, and we always specify bespoke solutions to ensure optimum results.
