Are the coatings flexible and breathable?
Yes. The Coatings are extremely flexible allowing the house to contract and expand with temperature changes. They have a high vapour permeability so that water vapour can escape so there is no moisture build up.
Will it crack, flake, split, chip or peel over time?
For over 30yrs these Coatings have proven to hold up against the most extreme weather conditions, unlike ordinary masonry paints! That is why we can Guarantee the Coatings for Up To 25 Years.

Yes every job comes with a written transferable 15year guarantee with some of the Coatings having a guarantee of between 20 to 25 years with a life expectancy of 30 to 40 years.
Is there any specialist equipment that you require?
On some contracts we may require scaffolding as we work to Health and Safety Regulations. Customers will be advised at the time of Survey.
Is there anything that I will be required to do prior to the job commencing?
We will ask you to move back any obstacles that are near to the property and take down any hanging baskets and secutity lights that may be attached to the walls. The only other requirement is access to a water tap and electric supply.
