Yet another successfully completed exterior house painting job, this time we visited Barrow in Furness, in Cumbria.
The house was fairly modern and just goes to show that our special coatings are more than suitable for modern homes as well as older properties.
We will breifly run through the work we carried out here.
Here is what we did to weatherproof and paint the outside of this lovely modern detached house in Barrow in Furness.
The owners of this impressive property had spent a fair bit on adding and extending it over the years and the final thing was to do something about that pebbledash on the outside walls.
Pebbledash is very much a “marmite” exterior wall covering, you either like it or hate it.
I’m with the latter, and so it would seem, was our customer.
The thing about pebbledash is that once you decide to overpaint it, you are then locked into painting it again every other year, and the cost can mount up over time, as can the hassle of having workmen around.
Despite that, adding masonry paint over pebbledash, just your normal everyday paint, is a hard job which takes ages, and eventually looks terrible.
The main benefit of our textured wall coating for pebbeldash is the fact that once it is applied to the walls of your house, it needs no more repair or painting for over 20 years and that comes with a house painting guarantee too.
Here is what the house used to look like, with grey and unappealing pebbledash.
The above image shows the team turning up on day one. The first things they do is to unload the tools and materials they need, to be stored safely out of the way, and then ladders come off the van and the team start to inspect the walls for defects,
If any problems are found, we carry out a full repair on each problem area 0f wall, however in this case, the house was in good condition so we could proceed to the next stage.

Here we see one of the areas we had to erect scaffolding
The first job the team do is to mask up the windows and doors, and lay dust sheets over the ground so we don’t make any mess, and leave the house as clean as when we first arrived.
We then hand applied a bonded cement slurry over the walls, which consolidates the surface and seals in any loose pebbles on the wall.
We then hand apply a weatherproof primer in an off-white colour, and allow to dry.
The final stage is to spray apply a good thick coat of Wethertex MP44 textured exterior wall coating by spray machine. We then remove the masking and tidy up, ready for the final inspection by the client.
Here we see the finished wall coating on the garage to the side of the property.
This wall coating system not only removes the requirement to keep on painting it, unlike paint, this system offers WEATHER PROTECTION against any climatic conditions you and your home may find themselves in over the next 2 decades. Despite that benefit, you may be surprised just how affordable our system is.
