External wall covering on a bungalow in Boscastle Cornwall

This lovely large bungalow near Boscastle on the North Cornish coast looked out over a verdant, sweeping valley, but required repairs to the render and a new coat of paint.

Lovely in the summer, but the rest of the year the driving rain and cold winds from the Atlantic ocean, buffeted the house and caused several cracks to appear, including patches of hollow and loose render.

A long term solution was needed by the owners, to avoid yearly painting and repair of this delightful home and that solution came in the form of a good thick coating of our coloured exterior wall coating system.

As the house has 2 different wall surfaces, we also used Andura Pro Clear on the front of the house which had natural stone walling.

The house had been previously coated with a textured wall coating but the company who did it did not do the correct preparation or the repairs to the house and lo and behold the coating didn’t last it’s expected lifespan and had to be done again.

The owners were not that impressed with the people who originally did the work, especially as they did not honour their guarantee, so they had to pay us to re-do the textured coating across the entire house.

Repairs and prep work for a wall coating

We found out the extent of the previous poor workmanship once we had got to work on prepping the walls for the paint system, especially as some of the coating on the walls came away in sheets as it had come away from the surface beneath!

During two rainy weeks one spring, the team from the Plymouth depot travelled down to the house and worked very hard (between rain showers!) to get the job done and as you can see the results speak for themselves!

This is what the front looked like after we had applied a clear wall coating to the walls.

The job was completed by one of our authorised dealers, now sadly moved on to new pastures due to family commitments.

We had to do crack repairs around the house, as in the photo near the top of the page, plus we masked up the windows, smoothed out the edges wehere the old coating had come away, primed it and then sprayed Andura polar white, which will repel all the wet weather that this area gets.

The house now has an exterior wall covering with a 15 year warranty.
