South West decorating team restore a house near Exeter

wall coatings finished

Another example of a quality exterior wall coatings job and House Painting in Exeter Devon, completed in winter 2012.

This lovely property on the edge of Exeter suffered from green mould growing on the walls, plus an amount of damp, and hollow rendering.

Exterior wall coatings, unlike normal masonry paint, can stop the effects of green mould growing on walls, even in damp and overcast areas, such as this property and are great at restoring any wall problems

 

If your home in Exeter, or in fact anywhere in the UK, needs another paint job this year, stop and think how much it is costing you each year, especially if it needs far more than just a coat of paint because we carry out all kinds of repairs, like the rendering we had to do on this job!

 

NPA wall coatings cure damp, and don’t need repainting!

 

Yes, that’s correct,  if you are fed up with painting your house each year, or searching for a painter and decorator, to paint the house, it gets more expensive each year, so why not have a special type of paint, which lasts for up to 20 years and has anti-mould characteristics?

This is what we started with:

You don’t need to be an expert to see that in the photo above, green mould and mildew was growing all over the house.

 

Many home owners who suffer with this, simply take it for granted that if they live in the countryside their home walls will get green. Not so with our exterior wall coatings, because they contain special fungicides that actively stop damp and mould from growing in the first place.

 

If your walls have green mould, this means that WATER exists inside the wall, otherwise the mould would not grow in the first place!

Here is another view of the house before we started work.

Some info on how we repaired the house

 

One of the first things to do, especially with the green on the wall, was to apply a fungicidal wash and powerwash the walls to get rid of the mould and to help us identify where any cracks were that had been covered up with this yucky green mildew!

We soon found some hollow render that needed fixing

STOP. (HAMMER TIME.) We soon found some hollow render that needed fixing

It wasn’t very long after hammer testing the walls by lightly tapping them, that we found some patches of hollow render which needed to be replaced immediately.

 

And lo and behold we found more bits of render that were just about to fall off, so we helped them meet their maker with a hammer and chisel!

It is of vital importance that when doing any painting or exterior wall covering work like this, that ALL repairs, even suspect bad bits, MUST be repaired and replaced before the primer is put on to the walls. It’s the professional way of doing it and the correct way of doing it, each and very time.

 

Here are the “after” images!

When all the work had been done, we took some more photos and here they are!

And here is a shot of another newly painted wall, from another angle. The sun or rather lack of it, makes the photos look like each wall is a different shade but it is a trick of the light I assure you!

We then walked around the side of the property after taking the above photo, and took another one to include a part of the rear too and here it is!
