If your exterior walls have been painted then they will need to be maintained. A high level of surface preparation is essential if the job is going to look good and last a long time.
If the surface is very bad then it may be necessary for us to wash some of it down first with a detergent solution to remove dirt, grease etc. this will help give the best results,then we Rinse off with clean water and allow too dry.
Carefully we scrape back to a firm edge all areas of poorly adhering or defective coatings and rub down thoroughly to “key and feather” broken edges of existing coatings. we Treat any areas affected by mould, lichens, algae and moss with a Fungicidal Wash.we Make good to minor defects with an appropriate exterior filler.
New or sound bare surfaces will be sealed with a thinned first coat of the exterior masonry paint (smooth or textured) to ensure good adhesion of the finishing coat(s). Surfaces that remain powdery, friable or chalky after thorough preparation will be sealed with a coat of Stabilising Primer.
all gaps around windows, doors etc are sealed,then we apply two or three coats of exterior paint to your choice.
all windows,facias,soffits and down pipes are washed where required.
