Repairing cracked render in Ivybridge, Devon

A wall coating on a rendered house

A 1980’s semi detached house in Clare street, Ivybridge, Devon, with poor condition render, several cracks and evidence of mould and algae growth on the walls.

The owners despaired as they could not find a decent and recommended painter and decorator who take the job on.

This project took around a week to complete and all the damp and mould has been cured, the walls are now protected and the owners have a maintenance free finish.

Weatherproof textured external coatings are like ultra durable long life paints which, when applied to your house, last for up to 20 years and this is what the owners requested we did to their home !

We have long been associated with life in Ivybridge and I still have many friends and relatives in the town. For those who are not familiar with the area, the town is about 9 miles east of the city of Plymouth and is at the foothills of the famous Dartmoor national park.

If you live anywhere in south Devon or the south hams are you need your house exterior painted, don’t pay the lad down the road to slap some old tosh you got cheap from Trago Mills, speak to us and we can put the best paint money can buy on the walls and guarantee that it will not to be repainted for up to 20 years and we can prove it too!

Due to the location of the house down one of the old side streets leading off from the former main road to London, it didn’t get much in the way of sunshine and had a fair amount of damage due to moss and algae accumulating on the walls, despite it being only 20 years old.

There was a fair bit of render that had cracked, and we had a bit of bother trying to get over a lean-to extension which had been built at the rear but luckily I knew a local scaffolding firm who came to the rescue.

We then masked up the doors and windows and then applied an external wall coating with a spray machine.

The house still looks this good, 8 years down the line and long may it continue to do so.

If you live in Devon and are looking for a decorator or at least someone to paint the outside of your house, choose people who know the area like the back of their hand, choose us! We hope to hear from you soon.
