Our Case Studies
The defect at this property is algae staining, which has been caused by the incorrect installation of drainage. This allowed excess water to run down the render.
To rectify this, we had to remove the algae, and then we pressure washed and cleaned the affected elevations. We then over coated the property in our specialist resin emulsion paint to produce the desired finish.
The homeowner at this property was concerned about the cracks in their render.
These cracks have been caused by thermal movement as a result of blockwork failure.
To repair this, we had to reinforce the blockwork behind with the Helifix stitch repair system. We then applied basecoat, fibre mesh reinforcement, and over coated the affected elevations with our specialist resin emulsion paint with a scratch finish to match the existing render.
The defect at this property is severe lime blooming, which occurs when the render has been applied in damp conditions or low temperatures.
We initially pressure washed the affected elevations and carried out a deep cleanse to remove the build-up of efflorescence. This was required as we had to ensure we were working with a smooth surface. We then over coated the property in our specialist resin emulsion paint, which dramatically improved the façade.
This homeowner was unhappy with the several unattractive patches on the render of their newly built home.
The defect at this property was caused by the housebuilder, who had patched several holes in the render with regular exterior house paint which, when dry, clearly did not match.
To remedy this, we decided the best way forward would be to overcoat the front and side elevations in our specialist silicone resin emulsion paint. This easily covered the patches and ensured there was an even finish across the whole house.
