an aesthetic and protective result.

External Redecoration Specialists London

In addition to maintaining our increasing 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 discolouration 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 work 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 are 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 not only saves the client money but also avoids the disruption caused by scaffolding to both building occupants and the surrounding community, 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

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.

Why Use Us For External Redecorations?


Instead of training abseilers to complete technical projects like repairing stone or timber sash windows, we train our specialists to work via rope access. This ensures that we are able to deliver every service we provide with rigor and to exceptional criteria.


We understand no matter how much you try, not all projects go to plan. The satisfaction of our clients is our number one property, which is why we are willing to be flexible and agile around the demands of the project. When you work with Spectrum, you can trust that we will find a way to make sure every project is completed to the highest standards.


By 3D printing our equipment, we are leading innovation in our industry. Our range of custom designed cleaning and repair equipment facilitates us in providing thorough services in the safest and most efficient manner.

What Are External Redecorations?

External decorations involve the review and repair of building details across a façade, deep cleaning using various 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 crosshatch testing to ensure that the painting systems will bond to the surface.

Why Might Your Building Require Our External Redecoration Service?

Discolouration, 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 crucial as it helps prevent decay. This 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.

If you're looking for a reliable and trusted window-cleaner company, look no further! Their work is always impeccable, the support team is incredibly kind, it's a flexible company and they respond immediately.

Chris Sansom2 years ago

Very helpful and friendly guys. Shaky English, but that didn’t really matter - they got the job done remarkably quickly and, as far as I can tell, thoroughly, showing me photos of the work afterwards. They even, at my request, put what they got out of the gutters in a bucket to go on our compost heap!...

Melissa Loedolff2 years ago

Huge thank you to Andreia for her assistance and endless patience. The standard of communication was excellent every step of the way.

External Redecorations in Waterloo

This beautiful waterfront property needed some restoration to reflect the beauty of its surroundings.

Here's a glimpse into our process:

🔍 Structural inspections, substrate testing, and crosshatch testing were all conducted. Why? To guarantee a long-lasting bond between the surface and the new paint.

⚒️ Here's the secret - Before painting anything, we prioritised repairing, restoring, and preserving the wood beneath. This vital step ensures a flawless finish that stands the test of time.

⌛ We never rush quality! Our team invested extra time in repairing any damage or rust on the balcony, ensuring a durable and silky-smooth outcome.

Remember, a quick fix may seem appealing, but a temporary solution will cost you more in the long run.

Opting for a quality repair now saves you from future headaches and expenses.
Don't fall into the trap of "buy cheap, buy twice."
