When houses are painted, normally not much thought goes into protecting the house from the weather, and this property, in Criccieth, Wales, showed us only too well how normal masonry paint offers zero protection against the weather.
The finish on the outside of your house at present could be rendered, maybe brick, or even covered in that “Marmite” of finishes, Pebbledash!
This house had a painted pebbledashed exterior wall finish, which required yearly painting to stop the masonry paint from literally falling off.
You can imagine that a house this size, to have it repainted each year, or at best, every 2 years, was not only money down the drain, it was hassle for the homeowners too.
Here is how we transformed this detached home in Wales, with a new exterior wall finish, courtesy of Wethertex.
The problem with most houses that have painted exterior walls is the fact that no matter what brand of masonry paint is used, it will only ever last at most a couple of years before you have to have the house repainted again.
The proven properties of the NEVER PAINT AGAIN wall finish system is the fact that once it is applied to a house by our teams, it will not need to be repainted for at least 20 years!
That is guaranteed too: 2 decades of hassle free living.
The owners of this house had been busy renovating it, with the addition of a couple of new extensions, which obviously stuck out like a sore thumb against the older parts of the house.
The photo above shows part of the initial wall preparation works, mainly removing the old and flaking paint from the older part of the house, much of which you can now see on the floor.
Once this is completed, we check the walls around the house for cracks or areas of loose render, and then carry out a full repair programme to any bad areas of the wall.
Here we see the rear of the house before we started work on the walls
You can clearly see the poor condition of the paint on the walls.
Bear in mind they only had it painted, by a local decorator, about 2 years ago, and already the paint has gone “green” and is holding moss and mildew, the upper floors clearly show this.
No decorating company worth their salt would apply paint to this wall just yet.
We have to powerwash the whole house to get rid of any nastiness, as indicated in the previous photo.
Exterior wall coating work in progress…..
Once we have done all the cleaning and the repairs, the mask up the doors and windows and lay dust sheets on the floor to avoid any mess, in fact we are very clean workers indeed and our customers leave reviews saying just that!
We then apply a primer across the whole house and allow to dry.
Walls in particularly bad condition often get 2 primer coats before the top coat is applied.
We then set up our spray machine, mix the large drums of coating and then spray apply our exterior wall coating system to the whole house.
The gable end wall, or “pine end” in Wales, caught a lot of the weather, including the chimney which was letting damp into the house and down the chimney breast indoors.
This photo shows how the weather was literally ripping the old paint off the wall.
Our house painting service is designed to be long term, so once we complete the work we do not have to return and repaint for 20 years and that comes with a no hassle guarantee.
We work all over England Wales by the way.

Here we see a side of the house which now has a beautiful new paint scheme, one that lasts over 20 years
Once the wall coating procedure is completed, the team remove all the masking paper, dustsheets etc and do a very thorough clean of the whole site. No mess is ever left.
Once the work is completed, the team supervisor then asks for the final payment.
