External Protection & Decoration
To fully protect the external walls a waterproof membrane needs to be applied. There are various ways to do this. We recommend DULUX TRADE WEATHERSHIELD paint.
ICI Dulux guarantees their paint for 15 years providing the application of the product conforms to the ICI specifications.
Recently a new wall covering has been introduced called “Graphiata” this product is 100% acrylic which is technically waterproof however we have visited quite a few properties where this has started to come away in large patches mainly due to poor application. To further protect your property we recommend that DULUX TRADE WEATHERSHIELD be applied on top of Graphiata coatings.
Flat roof sealing
If you suspect that your roof is leaking then it is imperative that it is dealt with promptly and professionally or untold problems will occur if it is left.
The most important protection for your property is your roof. If properly cared for it will stop water coming in for many years. Flat roofing can be a problem because this area is generally used to install solar water systems and satellite dishes. Very often the roof has been drilled to fix these items causing punctures in the membrane. If you suspect that your roof is leaking then it is imperative that it is dealt with promptly and professionally. Flat roofing should be inspected regularly to make sure that drain holes are not filled up with dirt and leaves leading to flooding on the roof. You should also check for any cracks caused by the hot sun. If cracking is found, then it is advisable to have the roof re- sealed with a quality roof sealant.
