large house in kent freshly painted by NEVER PAINT AGAIN UK

A paint that stops cracking for this Ashford house

Cracks come in all shapes and sizes, some only on the surface and some that go far deeper. This house in Ashford, Kent, was covered in painted tyrolean and suffered not only from cracking to various parts of each elevation, but it also needed frequent external re-painting. Due to the size of the house, having a local decorator from Kent to come in and paint it every 2 years was costing the owners a small fortune. This was of course coupled with the almost yearly hassle and inconvenience of having a team of painters arrive each time. Most decorators, including ourselves,…

An example of the benefits of protective textured coatings

When most people think about painting the outside of their home they think about PAINT. The sort of paint we can all buy down at B and Q for a few quid. The problem is, masonry paint is only actually designed to last a couple of years before it needs overpainting. In fact most DIY masonry paints start to break down after only the first winter. Our customer (in Newcastle Upon Tyne) realised this and knew all too well of the problems associated with paint and looking at the “before” photo of his house, you can see why the homeowner was…

bad weather and coastal homes

Kent coastal home gets protection from sea salt attack

If you live along our beautiful coastline you would be well aware that it’s a lovely place to be when the sun is shining but bloody awful when the weather’s bad! Houses located along Britain’s seaside are one of the most sought after in the country but that location, devoid of any weather protection, means each home can take a real battering when the weather is bad, causing in many cases, yearly painting of the exterior, but why? When someone makes a decision to move to the coast, perhaps from a town inland, a certain amount of romance and…

Home Decorating services along the M3 corridor

Our wall coatings team for the M3 corridor area have just completed work on a nice little detached bungalow in Chobham and they were so pleased with the work, as of course was the client, they took some nice photos to show us! Chobham lies just between Bagshot and Chertsey and north of Woking, (Paul Weller’s old stomping ground), and a town where we have been many times before when working in the area, so we felt right at home. If you live in ANY town or village in this area, and your home needs a paint job, give us a…

A sandwich

Having a Sandwich before going to Widnes to paint walls

Having a Sandwich? …..And where does the town of Widnes come into that? Let me explain. We paint homes up and down the country so here’s 2 examples of houses we painted with our weatherproof and very long life textured wall coatings. We give you some basic information about what we did to two very different properties,  the first one being a terraced, brick built house in Sandwich, Kent, the other a large 1920’s detached home up in Widnes, Cheshire.

Exterior wall coatings London

An Edwardian Pebbledashed house in Blackheath

Houses with pebbledash attract grime and start to look unsightly after a while, especially so for this property in London that was recently completed by one of our exterior wall coatings contractors. This lovely Edwardian house in Blackheath, London, was a palace inside, however the exterior appearance left a lot to be desired, so the owners called NEVER PAINT AGAIN to see what we could do for them.
