The importance of cosmetic repair in construction

When we talk about construction cosmetic repair, by definition we refer to the final stage of the project, when we are called in by a range of contractors to polish any imperfections to newly built or renovated properties.

The high demand for cosmetic repair solutions is unsurprising, considering many contractors are faced with looming deadlines and exacting customer demands during the final stage of the building project. Such increased pressure inevitably results in a greater risk of accidentally damaging surfaces general fittings, walls and doors in the rush to finish the job.

Whether you are developing a block of flats, renovating a municipal building or refurbishing a single home, leaving chips or scratches on the surfaces at the end of the job is guaranteed to make a bad impression. You have two choices if you want to avoid this – replacement, or cosmetic repair. Replacing broken or damaged fittings can often be a costly option, especially if you factor in disruption to the project and potential delays on top of the net cost of a new counter or door.

This is where cosmetic repair solutions come in. Hiring a trained cosmetic repair company such as SD Sealants allows contractors to quickly and affordably take care of any damage done to surfaces during the construction works. Our fully qualified and highly trained cosmetic repair professionals have years of experience in fixing and finishing all types of surface, across both large and small projects.

What is the cosmetic repair process?

Starting with an initial assessment, our property cosmetic repair team will then begin work on restoring the damaged areas, making sure that the shape, colour, pattern and finish of the surfaces look as good as new by the time they are finished. As part of our cosmetic repair solutions, we repair any surfaces and items that have been damaged during the construction process, including doors, cupboards, bathroom units, walls and floors which may have been scratched, chipped or dented.

Our surface repair experts can restore even the most heavily damaged items to their former glory, allowing construction companies and building contractors to present an immaculate property on schedule, without the need to replace expensive items.

Types of cosmetic building repairs

‘Cosmetic house repairs’ is often used as a blanket term which covers a variety of cosmetic repair solutions for both individual houses and large-scale projects like a block of flats, including:

Cosmetic surface repairs

Cosmetic surface repairs usually involve fixing any surfaces which have sustained damage such as discolouring, stains, scratches, chips or cracks, using a selection of specialist fillers, paints and polishes.

The range of surfaces that can be restored using cosmetic surface repair varies from worktops and kitchen units, wood and flooring to UPVC and glass, as well as an array of external surfaces such as brickwork and masonry.

One of the most common types of cosmetic surface repairs when it comes to the area of cosmetic home repairs is the reconstruction of worktops and kitchen units. Whether it’s dealing with a large crack on a glossy worktop, a chip missing from a newly installed door or a damaged kitchen unit, our expert cosmetic surface repairs team can fill in the cracks, colour match the surface and replicate the texture, restoring the original look of the item so it looks as good as new, saving you the need for a replacement.

Construction cosmetics brick tinting

Another popular aspect of cosmetic house repairs is brick tinting. A technique widespread throughout Europe, cosmetic brick tinting is used to ensure that there are no colour inconsistencies in brickwork or masonry.

There are a number of reasons why colour inconsistencies might appear, including using a variety of brick batches for the same construction job, or failing to match the bricks of a new structure (e.g. extension) with these of the main building. To avoid the end results having a patchy appearance, many contractors turn to the construction cosmetic brick tinting solutions provided by our cosmetic repairs team.

Whether it’s decorative brickwork, replacing old bricks with a new batch due to damage or restoring listed buildings, we can colour match most brick types to ensure a seamless look. Our fully trained cosmetic repair brick tinting specialists can create unlimited brick shades using specialist pigments and dyes, which gives us the confidence that we’d be able to meet the unique tinting requirements of your site.

This cosmetic house repair solution is suitable for most bricks and mortar as well as both artificial and natural stone facades, so you can easily ensure the brickwork matches across the full construction job you’ve completed, whether it’s a block of flats or just a house extension.

Cosmetic tile repairs

During the construction process, walls and floor tiles are also at risk of accidental damage, so it’s very common that contractors find chips, cracks and scratches in the tiling. To avoid ruining the look of a newly built home by having a large chip in the floor tiles, contractors turn to cosmetic tile repairs as a cheaper alternative to replacing the tiling. With the help of a cosmetic repairs team, you can mend the damage and recreate the style of the tile quickly and affordably, which is especially practical if you are working on a block of flats and need a couple of issues patched up.

Cosmetic window repairs

Last, but not least, cosmetic home repairs specialists are often called upon to fix damage to glass windows. Luckily for contractors, our expert cosmetic window repairs team can provide on-site glass repairs, polishing any scuffs and scratches, and removing accidental abrasions from the windows, leaving the glass looking sparking clean without the need for removal or a pricey replacement.
