Art Deco houses are, on the whole, quite rare things.
If you own a house that has been constructed in the art deco style, chances are that factor alone will double the value of the home compared to more run of the mill homes in the same area.
As we are time-served skilled exterior wall experts, we have the knowledge and experience to effectively restore, refurbish, paint and weatherproof ANY art deco home and can provide references to that effect.
What is “Art Deco”?
The Art Deco aesthetic movement was chiefly between the mid 1920’s and the outbreak of the second world war….
Public buildings such as cinemas, concert halls, even factories, were built in the art deco style, but not so many houses. Across Europe, and in some cases, America, Art Deco was the new thing and thankfully many of these building still survive today, their external appearance being their main draw.
Art Deco was a style movement which influenced design across the whole spectrum; internal fixtures and fittings, down to exteriors, with smooth clean lines, curved walls and various arty embellishments.
We offer sympathetic and sensitive exterior wall refurbishments and painting for all art deco houses.
The Art Deco Movement was roughly between 1920-1940.
Famous examples of Art deco buildings include The Chrysler building in New York, The old east stand of Arsenal football club, various buildings in Valencia, Spain, several London Underground Stations, and surprisingly Romania also has a surfeit of Art Deco Buildings.
Never paint again has substantial experience in renovating the exteriors of art deco houses across England and we welcome the chance to provide a quotation if you own one of these houses..
We are proud to be part of keeping history alive and the tiny contribution we make to the upholding of the art deco movement in general, although we have been involved in other art deco house projects previously, including advising on the exterior wall finish for a well known TV property show on Channel 4.
We carry out the full set of remedial works on Art Deco houses, first removing the flaking paint and curing any damp in the walls as a priority.
After preparing a house, We then masked up the windows and protected all the lawned areas and shrubs, and applied a bonding cement slurry, known in the trade as ‘bagging’ or ‘bag rubbing’, which effectively acts as a wall stabiliser, plus consolidates and repairs any loose or missing pointing mortar joints. We also removed the old outside wall paint before preparing for the new surface.
We then hand apply primer to the walls, and then spray applied a coating of our textured masonry coating to the walls.
After all the masking is removed, our teams carefully repaint the original windows with a specially matched burnt orange colour.
