Homeowners time and time again thank us for the work we do to their homes, especially as once our team has finished, the house will not need to be painted for at least 20 years, guaranteed.
This page shows but one of the hundreds of houses we repair and paint every year.
If you enjoy this page, then why not select “case studies” from the menu above and see some more of our work.
Here is what we did to repair and paint this semi detached house in Perranporth, Cornwall.
Being as we are based in Plymouth and the Southwest’s largest exterior wall coating contractor, we often get asked to do work in Cornwall.
Our teams are fuelled on tea and pasties, so no matter what time of year, even in winter, you can be assured of a hardworking and resilient team, at your service 12 months of the year, something your local Cornish painter and decorator cannot do.
This shows us halfway through the wall coating work
The above image shows us halfway through the work. Preparation is the key to a long lasting paint job and this is exactly what our skilled teams do, each and every time.
As the house was pebbledash, we had to stabilise the textured wall surface before we could carry on so we mixed a slurry solution of sand, cement, water and unibond and brushed it across the walls.
This seals in any loose stones on the wall, plus it fills in the heavily textured areas of wall, impossible to apply paint without doing so.
This is why we mask up the doors and windows to prevent any mess, plus it means it doesn’t take us too long to clean up once the job has been completed.
If you see the left hand side of the photo, the wall is white. It has had the slurry primer coat and then we hand applied a weatherproof primer solution to the walls, which gives us a good surface to apply our exterior textured wall coating.
Here is the rear elevation which we had to do some repairs to the rendering before we started painting
As you can see, on every site, it is safety first, hence the scaffolding, which is why our company has a ZERO ACCIDENT RECORD, which we are very proud of.
This wall get the very same treatment as the rest of the house did. A belt and braces approach.
Of course when we work on a house we cover the floors with dustsheets and tarpaulins so as to not make mess on the floor, something traditional decorators seem to forget.
Why do we take some much care in preparation?
Painters and decorators come and go, but we’ve been doing this since 1986, so why are we still here?

Here we see the front already in primer and ready to be sprayed with our wall coating system
Those 2 pipes you can see are from the pump we use to spray our coating, one contains compressed air, the other contains the paint mix.
As our wall coatings are 20 times the thickness of masonry paint, they cannot be brushed or rollered onto the wall, it has to be sprayed.
This gives us the ability to put an extra thick coating, in fact 20 times thicker than masonry paint, meaning your home is fully protected against the weather.
Here is the finished article around the back of the house. This won’t need repainting for 20 years.
Scroll back up and compare what the back of the house used to look like!

A bit about Perranporth.
Whilst we get to work all around the country with our network of accredited dealers, as our head office is in Plymouth, we do get a lot of requests to paint homes in Cornwall, which is just over the border.
Perranporth is on the North Cornwall coast, a mecca for surfers due to the Atlantic swell and big waves. It’s home to about 4,000 people but that swells in the summer with tourists. The name of the town is derives from Cornwall’s patron saint, St. Piran.
Famous sons include Donald Healey, who went on to make highly regarded sports cars, famously collaborating with Austin, and with Jensen.
