Exterior wall coating and paint: the key differences

2020-04-14T17:35:33+00:00

To the naked eye, there isn’t much of a difference between regular paint and wall coatings. A cursory glance reveals little else other than that they both cover the outside of your home in a colour of your choice. Do a little more investigating however, and the differences between the two become increasingly stark. While ordinary masonry paint will deteriorate quickly, leaving your home vulnerable to damp; exterior wall coating is robust enough to protect your home from harm for […]

2018-12-20T15:33:57+00:00

Penetrating damp is a common problem in buildings but it’s not one that should be ignored and once caught the problem should be solved as soon as possible to prevent any future or further issues. What causes penetrating damp? The cause of penetrating damp is simply down to water and moisture from outside penetrating through the walls causing the dampening damage inside. It’s not just the ground floor penetrating damp can effect, it can be a problem for a property […]

Most common exterior paint problems

2018-10-09T10:37:27+00:00

Exterior paints have to be made of hardier stuff than their interior relatives. They have to be able to endure everything the weather can throw at them – whether that’s freezing cold or blisteringly hot temperatures, adverse weather conditions or even the more mundane, everyday occurrences of buffeting wind and rain. Because of these combative conditions, there are a lot of things that can cause exterior wall paint to deteriorate and a whole range of technical terms to describe them. […]

Property damage: most common causes

2019-07-05T08:37:28+00:00

Sustaining damage to your property is a disaster. And, as much as we believe we have prepared to account for every eventuality, sometimes we are completely helpless. Faced with the irresistible force of the elements, our home’s defences can very quickly be rendered inadequate. Sometimes we only have ourselves to blame: a failure to act quickly enough to neutralise a potential threat or purely through accidental means. A detailed understanding of the most likely threats to your home gives you […]

How much time are you wasting painting your home?

2019-04-10T22:39:01+00:00

Painting the exterior of your property, in its entirety, is right up there with the most time-consuming DIY tasks. Just acquiring the right equipment – the perfect shade of off-white paint, a suitably sized ladder, the dustsheets you need to protect the rest of your home from stray flecks of paint, can take days. Actually doing the painting is laborious. Each side of the house is a project in itself, making completing all four a gargantuan effort. Straining to reach […]

Coastal property maintenance: How to repair and defend

2019-04-10T23:47:39+00:00

For many, the most telling difference between living on the coast and living inland is the pace of lifestyle. As experts in repairing and weatherproofing home exteriors however, we take a very different perspective on the critical differences between coastal properties and inland properties. Most prominent of all of these differences – and most deserving of our immediate attention – is the amount of punishment from the elements coastal properties have to weather. Proximity to the sea brings with it […]

2018-08-29T09:30:51+00:00

Have you ever considered making some changes to your home to increase its value? Almost all of us have, but very few of us take steps to actually realise these ambitions. It is understandable though; where there’s money on the line there is a genuine element of risk involved. Investing your hard-earned cash into a project that doesn’t pay dividends is nothing short of disastrous. To prove the old adage ‘you’ve got to spend money to make money’ true, we […]
