RBR combine the best of traditional craftsmanship with modern techniques and materials to accomplish an excellent finish, as well as the best possible protection for the future. The cleaning of masonry facades, whatever the material, is the most visible aspect of building conservation work. At RBR the building’s history is always taken into account, as is the materials used in the fabric of the building, when we decide which cleaning system to utilise. Good stone and brick cleaning systems rely on the skills, care and attention of the operatives. At RBR our operatives are fully trained and qualified and receive regular retraining on any new systems. We are also committed to protecting the environment and strive to achieve both safer and environmentally friendly removal.

Our specialised cleaning methods include:

  • Masons Water Clean
  • Nebulous Water Clean

The more advanced systems of wet and dry cleaning treatments:

  • Rotec
  • Torc
  • DOFF Integra.

RBR Conservation also utilises specialist cleaning techniques such as poulticing to remove paint.

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.
