However, it cannot be ignored as you need to meet legal requirements or develop aesthetic appeal. PPVS offers the building fabric maintenance you need.

    Most builders use finishes as the final part of any manufacturing or construction process, which forms the final or last surface of an element. Finishes are there to offer protection for your building surfaces from factors like abrasion, corrosion, frost, water, and so on. However, they can add a creative effect and improve the general aesthetics of your building. Although finishes usually have to do with internal surfaces of buildings, they can also be applied on external ones- either wet or dry.

    We also offer insulation services to help protect you by preventing the transmission of elements. Insulation may come in various forms, including thermal, electrical, fire, and acoustic insulation. Thermal insulation prevents the transmission, and in effect, loss of heat. This type of fabric focuses mainly on the space between the inside and outside of your building. Acoustic insulation prevents sound transmission, while fire insulation works on prevention the passage of fire between components or spaces. Fire insulation is essential to any building fabric maintenance. Electrical insulation is used to separate or contain electrical conductors and ensure their safety.



    Our cladding services are ideal for protecting your external walls from the effects of weathering, such as rain and wind – this cladding service also adds an aesthetic value to your building’s exterior. Cladding can come in various forms, including traditional brick or stone cladding, timber cladding, metal cladding, and more modern options such as composite panels. We work with a variety of cladding materials and can help you choose the best one for your building’s needs.


    In addition to our extensive cladding solutions, we also specialise in installing robust roller shutter doors perfect for enhancing security and insulation in your premises. Whether for commercial or industrial properties, our roller shutter doors are tailor-made to meet your specifications, offering both functionality and durability.
