Another example of our Never Paint Again wall coatings treatment, this house in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire needed render repairs & a fresh new weatherproof paint scheme, which we were only too happy to oblige.
The property also required minor alterations to be done by ourselves, along with repairing a multitude of cracks, rendering, and then applying our famous NEVER PAINT AGAIN wall coating.
This page explains our processes and methods employed when we repair and paint a property.
From feedback received, we find our potential customers appreciate us showing them the whole process as we are not your everyday painting and decorating company. We do things a little differently, in fact you may be asking “what are exterior wall coatings?” We have a massive amount of information on our site to answer any question you may have.
Hopefully upon seeing how thorough our house repainting and repairing work is, you may be tempted to contact us for a quote?
On day one we knew the house needed some repairs so this is what we did.
Not particularly nice looking is it, and that is obviously why we were called out in the first place. You can clearly see a lot of cracks on the walls.
Our installation team member in the photo obviously wanted to offer you his own rather “visual” opinion on the state of the house!
Cracks (the ones on houses, not on our team member) will get worse over time if not attended to by a professional.
If a crack is not properly repaired it WILL get worse over time, causing the render to become hollow and allowing damp into the property, meaning costly repairs.
And as our wall coating system requires a wall in good condition, in order for it to last its full 20 years, we always and without fail attend to problem wall areas such as cracks and loose render, before we even open a tin of paint.
The rear of the house was in an even worse state of repair
So we now have a house that needs repairs to render and cracks fixing all around.
Does this sound like your house?
This is the sort of job that a traditional painter and decorator would walk away from as they don’t like to do repairs, they just paint over everything, and lo and behold, after a year or two it looks like a dog’s dinner and you have to call them back and pay them AGAIN to repaint it.
Once we carry out all the repairs to the bits that need fixing and making good, we mask up the windows and apply 2 different types of primer/stabiliser to the walls, like this…..
As you can see, to avoid mess, we always cover the windows, pipes and doors with paper, and put dust sheets down on the floor, so once we finish, we leave the house so clean you would never know we had been there!
Remember our house painting system lasts for 20 years, as opposed to masonry paint which will last for only a couple of years, and our products undergo rigorous weathering tests so when we say it lasts for 2 decades, we mean it!
We applied the first cement-based stabiliser coat to the front of the house, and where it is drying out, you can see the areas where we repaired the cracks.
Once the primer coating is applied (by hand) the repaired areas of wall will not be seen.
This is something that if we used normal masonry paint, we would not be able to achieve as normal paint is actually very thin.
This is in contrast to our exterior wall coatings which are up to 20 times the thickness of normal paints and will give any house a pleasing and uniform finish, on pebbledash, stone, brick or render, plus our house painting system comes with a 20 year guarantee.
The next state is to apply the Wethertex primer coat to the whole house.
Apart from the work we did to the outside walls of the house, we also had to repair and weatherproof the chimney.
The exposed stonework below was re-pointed using lime mortar, and then the chimney breast was coated with our wall coating to match the rest of the house.
We can also do chimney restoration, as seen in the photo below.
We are not chimney specialists though and only work on a chimney stack when we are working on the rest of a house, we don’t repair chimneys on their own, you need a roofing company to do that.
Although this house is in Cambridgeshire, we actually cover the whole of the country so it easy to get a wall coating quote, just speak to us, we’re open 7 days a week!
The final stages in applying our weatherproof wall coating system
The last bit of what you can clearly see is a very intense and thorough programme of works, is to apply our wall coating.
It goes on by spray and although it looks just like a high quality paint job, it’s so much more than that, plus it will not need repainting for 20 years.
As you can see the house has been fully repaired by our expert teams, has had several primer coats and a top coat of Wethertex MP44 exterior textured masonry coating.
This may look expensive to you but I assure you it is not!
Not only that, we realise we are not the only company doing this kind of work, so we guarantee to beat any quote you may have received from another wall coating company.
