Hi, I don't have much experience with this type of thing. I need to make the two buildings in the pictures look attractive. Both are on the same site and will be rented out to smaller businesses once refurbished. Any ideas?

It really depends on how much you want to spend. Cladding systems are in he news after Grenfell so make sure you get fire retarded products. Have a quick look at this site for inspiration as it might give you some ideas http://www.vulcansystems.co.uk/#

Assuming you don't own these, has a budget been mentioned?

There's a bit more than a lick of paint required. Are you just taking care of the outside?

What sort of finished job is expected?

Thanks for the replies.

We do own them and want them to look attractive. The inside has already been largely refurbished and looks good. Obviously the outside looks terrible.

Havnt decided on a budget, something affordable but looks good.

Our lot had a building done by Allen Fabrications.

http://www.allenfabs.co.uk/

Except ours was a total new build and I'm not privy as to who exactly was contracted to do what.

It was certainly, and still is, a smart finish when it was done.

For the steel clad ones, you could probably pull off the existing sheeting and flashings and reclad with box profile sheeting and fit new flashings on the barges, around the roller doors etc... is it single skin or composite panel? or loose insulation between skins?

A local industrial or even agricultural building specialist would sort that in no time.

I think new cladding is the best option.

A job lot of box profile maybe?

I thought first about painting, but the existing metal cladding is quite damaged.

You could do all the buildings in box profile. The painted brick building could have tile battens fitted then clad.

Thanks for all the comments!

Was wondering for the smaller building if its possible to use fake brick cladding, re-plaster and paint or if there are other options and which would look best?

For the warehouse cladding might be the only way to go but was wanting something more creative and looking inviting rather than a regular warehouse, are there any options here such as fake wooden cross beams?

There were some industrial units around our way that have been refurbished and I've just googled what I think they used.
Warehouse exterior wall panels
I don't know what they cost or how they are fitted but they look the part.

This is my daytime game
there are lots of options available to you but all depends how deep those pockets go-
a rainsreen system has many options like eternit operal,
look up a firm called nord and east and look at there office photos , I done a overclad there last year with bubble sheeting and micro rib,the before pictures were similar to yours but on a bigger scale
a composite cladding like micro rib placed horizontal is great- about £60 per meter to buy plus track and labour
box profile if cheaper or you could use timber vertically placed "castle boarded" fixed to timber bearers
