What makes All Weather Coating Different?

All Weather Coating

Searching for the most effective method to paint your home’s exterior can be a trying task. There is a wealth of information about the topic available online but how can you possibly whittle such an extensive list of options down to one? In this post, we’re going to cover the differences between DIY and professional approaches to painting the outside of a home, as well as the things that separate our own services from those of our competitors.

Why enlist the services of a company instead of taking a DIY approach?

If you’ve successfully painted your bathroom or kitchen before, don’t expect painting the entire exterior of your home to be a similarly straightforward experience. It isn’t as simple as picking up a can of waterproof paint, setting up a ladder and putting the time in. You need the right materials and a comprehensive understanding of the task ahead. Without these essentials, you are setting yourself up to fail.

The sole redeeming quality of taking the amateur approach is financial in nature. Materials aside, you don’t have to fork over any of your hard-earned cash to another party. And while this might seem like a financially astute move for the moment, long-term, it is far from sensible. An inexperienced, ill-informed and ill-equipped painter can only hope to accomplish little more than adequacy, leaving your home vulnerable to costly complications further down the line.

Fitting external wall coatings in Hunstanton

Project Description

The residents of a large block of flats in Hunstanton, Norfolk, had had enough of redecorating their external walls every three years due to the ravages of the salty sea air! They needed a long-term solution.

Work Description

1. Preparation

The high build-up of paint on the exterior walls had an abrasive finish to trap dust and dirt so we use a needle gun to remove it.
Remove large areas of render because damp has seeped in behind
Grind out cracks and fill with an epoxy resin
Use a dryzone damp course treatment on various parts of the properties to help prevent rising damp
Fillet a damp course membrane under the coping stones to help stop render behind the parapets detaching
2. Masking

Mask up windows, doors and drainpipes. This process was carried out in stages to avoid inconveniencing the occupiers any longer than necessary. As most of the flats were holiday homes, we worked on them during the off-peak season.

3. Bag Rubbing

Bag rubbing is vital to help remove scars and imperfections from the walls, as well as stabilise the rendered surface so the next stage (primer) adheres well.

4. Primer Coat

The previous stage has ensured an even finish, so we apply the primer with a roll rather than a brush.

5. Final Coat

Spray Andura Classic 21 on to the wall surface for an amazing end result.
