Why do you need facade maintenance services?
1. Building Presentation
Anything from age, pests, weather and air pollutants can affect the exterior attractiveness of a building. Whether it is your home or your place of work, the Magic Glass team appreciate the importance of maintaining the look of your property.
Birds and pests are also an eyesore on your building’s facade and often cause property damage to filling, gutters and roofs. With a team of IRATA trained Rope Access technicians, Magic Glass are able to access and dislodge any area on your building that hosts birds and pests. To prevent any further damage to your property and from a pest issue arising in the future, the team are also fully equipped to install preventive measures such as wire and filling to keep your building clean and polished.
Magic Glass’ facade maintenance also targets wear and tear to paint and waterproofing. Facade maintenance for coating, membranes, rendering and general paintwork is crucial for commercial and residential properties to maintain the facade’s integrity. For commercial clients, maintaining presentable signage is business critical. Magic Glass’ Rope Access division and glaziers are highly experienced in the removal, custom cut, design and re-installation of front facade signage. Height difficulties and bespoke designs are no problem for the Magic Glass team. With an in-house glazing facility, Magic Glass’ team will focus on renewing and refreshing your facade with our Same Day/Next Day service.
Regardless of the structure or age of a residential or commercial block, factors such as material quality and exposure to the sun or rain can degrade the structure and visual appearance of a front facade. Your home or work-place will inevitably deteriorate, and that’s why you need the Magic Glass experts in facade maintenance who are dedicated to addressing new and recurring problems to repair your building to tip-top condition.
Facade remedial repair is often an aesthetic concern, however it can also be a quick and easy way to maintain safe conditions in your home or work-place. The Magic Glass team are not only effective at addressing minor facade issues, but are also highly experienced in greater repair jobs in occasions of damage, corrosion or concrete cancer.
As facade management experts, Magic Glass goes beyond fixing existing issues. The team’s concrete experts examine the site and will identify the causes of concrete cancer to devise a specific plan to repair and prevent it in the future. Concrete cancer affects the structural integrity of your building. With the rapid, experienced and conscientious team at Magic Glass, your issues are treated with urgency and care.
Magic Glass’ commitment to rapid assistance in situations of compromised safety is also assured through its 24/7 emergency call out services. Whether for one-time-only needs or an urgent facade maintenance claim, the team utilises a highly skilled and IRATA trained Rope Access team to make glass, facades and signage safe at any height.
One of the most important safety precautions ensured by Magic Glass facade maintenance is anchor point installation and management. Anchor points are a crucial safety assurance for Rope Access teams when working at heights. For commercial clients in high-rises, facade maintenance will usually require abseiling services to reach difficult to access spaces. Magic Glass not only provides the installation service of these anchor points but also tests and inspects them every 12 months. This allows more rapid and safer services when your building needs glass replacement, cleaning or repair.
3. Value for Money
As industry experts in facade management, Magic Glass not only focuses on achieving measurable benefits for safety, but strives to extend the life of original installations. Along with Magic Glass’ check and reporting services on installations rendered from anchor points, glass and signage, the team focuses on low-cost, low-disruption methods for the client to get more bang for their buck.
Magic Glass thinks about the customer when offering any and all services. For residential clients, cranes and scaffolding are highly disruptive and expensive.

Using anchor points which the team installs and maintains, Magic Glass cleans, reseals and inspects facades discreetly and at minimum cost. Along with cutting the costs of services, maintenance ensures existing fittings are kept to the highest quality for the longest time possible.
