Formally known as Stone Cleaning Restoration Services, Facades was established in 1984 as a one-stop company for all manner of building facade cleaning, restoration, structural repair and refurbishment. Our headquarters are in North-East England, but in a highly-specialised field demand for our services means we are, to all intents and purposes, a nationwide company.
In the past three decades, we have undertaken well over 2,000 projects, many of them very high-profile, and have established a reputation for the highest technical and professional standards. Testimony to this is the fact we have been members of the Stone Federation of Great Britain since 1987, a body which promotes and upholds good working practices among its family of members and upon whose technical expertise we can call during particularly specialist projects.
Facades also have a long-established working relationship with Stonehealth Ltd, market leaders in sympathetic restoration techniques and equipment, and are proud to bear their rosette standard.
The integrity of building facades and surfaces will only be assured through the correct application of the correct materials using the correct techniques, sympathetically applied. This understanding and know-how cannot be gained overnight. Facades can call upon more than 120 years of experience, and combine this knowledge resource with an approach that is both innovative and proactive.
This flexibility and depth of experience has allowed us to develop excellent on-going relationships with numerous local authorities, major construction companies, architects, surveyors and housing associations.
All our labour is directly employed and trained to either NVQ Level 2/3 in facade cleaning and surface repairs, or have been fully trained by our specialist suppliers of equipment, systems and materials.
Health and Safety is integral to all company operations. A highly experienced Health and Safety Consultant oversees each and every contract and we are at an advanced stage towards achieving CHAS safety accreditation.
