Exterior wall coatings on a old brick house in Wiltshire

Front of brick house after exterior wall coatings

Does your house exterior need painting yet again this year?

Do the walls get dirty quickly or does the paint start to fade after only a few months?

Would you like to never have to paint your house again?

Well, look at one of the jobs we have done, explained in full, and then give us a call!

Latest completed house painting project, this old brick built house needed more than simply exterior painting, so we applied a 3 stage exterior wall coating to the outside surfaces and doesn’t it look great!

When we carry out external painting work to a house that is faced with bricks, we need to take a slightly different approach to houses that have pebbledash or render for example.

This particular exterior painting job in Wiltshire required our teams to carry out various repairs to bricks, to fix bad pointing, and also access was required above the roof that abuts the part of the home that we were painting.

The very first job for the team to do is to locate any areas of concern around the house, and places that would need some fixing up and some attention before we are able to carry out the wall coating work to the house.

Exterior painting

Exterior painting on its own just isn’t good enough as far as we are concerned, so we got the tools out, rolled our sleeves up and got to work! We really enjoyed getting some exterior painting in progress between the rain showers!

This is what the house looked like on day one.

We power washed the walls and then laid dust sheets and tarpaulins down to protect the paths.

We then visually checked all areas of the wall surface for problems and then of course carried out the repairs, to which although there were not many, some bricks had to be refaced and some pointing was needed.

We then hand-applied a bonded latex render wash, known in the trade as “Bagging” or Bag rubbing” and this fills in bumps, dents and imperfections in the brick, plus it consolidates the surface, giving us a good key for the exterior painting afterwards.

We then carefully masked up all doors, windows and gutters, and hand applied a special Andura primer coat all across the walls.

After this, we were ready to spray apply the special flexible and weatherproof wall coating to the property, and after we had finished the house looked like this!
