Façade Conservation & Repair
RBR take every care and advice in selecting the most appropriate method for upgrade works to exterior façades.
Cleaning methods we specialise in include Masons Water Clean, Nebulous Water Clean, and Wet and Dry treatments to the more advanced systems of cleaning using Rotec, Torc and DOFF Integra. We utilise specialist cleaning techniques for paint removal and poulticing.
We also have experience in the application of insulated renders on existing commercial buildings. Among our projects included specialist concrete repair works to address long term issues with problematic precast concrete façade panels in a busy city centre which were required to be carried out in advance.
Bird Protection Services
The damage that bird fouling causes to historical buildings can be extensive. Apart from the obvious unsightliness, the main issue is acids released from their excrement. These can cause irreversible damage to building surfaces resulting in the scarring of building fabric, damaging appearance and, potentially, causing thousands of pounds worth of damage.
The way to reduce the threat of building damage is to identify the problem bird and the main problem areas, treat and clean any fouling that may be in place, and then install deterrents that will prevent birds from fouling the same place again.
