Facade cleaning experts

First impressions count. The exterior of your building influences a visitor’s opinion – even before they set foot inside. Thomann-Hanry®’s patent-protected facade cleaning system is the solution you need to optimise the curb appeal of your business. Our unique non-scaffold process yields impressive results with minimal disruption. Having restored numerous high profile façades over the years we understand that, in addition to cleaning a building, it is then imperative to protect it in order to maximise the investment. This resulted in the Aqua Fend® surface protection product range, which was launched in 2012.

Painting and decorating

The character and condition of the windows defines the overall appearance of a façade – and nowhere more so than on historic buildings. Thomann-Hanry® have a proven track record of best practice and industry-leading techniques in the preservation, repair and upkeep of the windows and all other timberwork and metalwork on historic buildings. Better still, we always work from Mobile Elevated Work Platforms, avoiding the need to shroud a building in unsightly scaffolding for months on end.

Building survey

The starting point of the process of a facade cleaning and restoration is a comprehensive facade survey and analysis. During the inspection of the building, we record all visible defects with our bespoke survey software. All issues are highlighted and a digital façade drawing is produced, including before-and-after visuals based on the recommended restoration technique. Our building surveys are done by MEWP, which are also available for hire.

  • “Despite the presence of exceptionally high levels of pollution which had accumulated on the limestone façade over many years, Thomann-Hanry® were able to clean the entire seven-storey building in just two days. They organised all the permits and managed the site so that the work could be undertaken on one of London’s busiest streets without disrupting traffic, pedestrians, retailers or office workers. Their operation was excellent and, best of all, the building’s appearance was transformed.”

I fully endorse Thomann-Hanry® to work on buildings such as this."

  • "Painting the exterior wood & metalwork on a 6 storey five star, grade II Listed building in the busy Marylebone area has not been an easy task. The combined complication issues of occupancy, parking restrictions compounded by adverse weather conditions have been managed extremely well between the Hotel management team and Thomann-Hanry®. The quality of workmanship, attention to detail and cooperation has been exemplary. I would highly recommend Thomann-Hanry® to any company considering an alternative to the traditional scaffolding approach."
