I’m stood here in the gorgeous surroundings of a sunny Gwynedd in the beautiful country of Wales, taking photos of our latest completed job, this split level bungalow.
This pebbledashed home was in generally good condition and required very little in terms of repair so our team got straight to work preparing the walls for an application of our famous NEVER PAINT AGAIN pebbledash painting system.
Whenever we work in Wales, which nowadays is quite a lot, we always get a warm Welsh welcome, and in this case, even the weather looked down upon us with favour!
We often post pages like this, with a a detailed description of our wall coating process, but as we have been writing this website since 1999, an age in internet terms, we tend to repeat ourselves, even though each house painting job is different.
So on this occasion, I will try and keep it brief, and if you want the low down on how we approach each job and how we apply our famous NEVER PAINT AGAIN pebbledash coating system, simply go to this page to learn more. (opens in a new window)
Here’s is what we did to this home in Gwynedd, Wales.
If you know the Gwynedd area, due to it’s proximity to Snowdownia, it can get a fair bit of weather and the homeowners in this case certainly knew that fact.
A fact that we know is that paint will NOT give your home any protection at all, it is just coloured water, so having one of our weatherproof wall coatings can save you a fair bit of money over the years (It lasts over 20 years before it needs redoing)
This image shows the first stage which is cleaning the wall to remove dirt and debris.
Once this is done across the entire outside walls, we wait for it to dry and in most cases, carry out repairs, but this house didn’t need much, which as a bonus, also keeps the final cost down.
We also had to do the chimney, and unlike some cowboy wall coating companies, which sadly there are a few, we use a proper health and safety approved scaffold to access and work on the chimney in safety.
Let’s get back to working on that pine end……
This photo shows the next stage, which is called bagging. This is basically a bonded cement slurry which we paint over pebbledashed walls to even out the texture a bit, plus give us a good base for the next coat.
The next stage is painting the primer which we did after this was taken.
(Note we lay dusheets and mask up windows, to avoid any mess)
This is what the wall looked like once we sprayed it with NEVER PAINT AGAIN pebbledash coatings
As you can see it goes on very thick, much thicker than paint, which means not only does it leave a fabulously rich and deep finish, it protects the house from the weather and these people know only too well, it may be sunny now, but come winter time it will be bitterly cold and wet.
Here is the finished article, a totally weather-protected wall in Wales!
The paint finish on this home will not need any further painting or repair, for the next 20 years, and that comes with a 20 year insurance-backed guarantee.
