Painting and Decorating Render – Ennis Clare, Lt Baddow, Chelmsford.

Crystal Clear Cleaning Maintenance Ltd – Painting and Decorating Services.

Painting and Decorating Services to Property Render and Jet Washing of Lower Front Roof.

Crystal Clear Ltd have worked for Mr and Mrs Tennet over a number of years by regularly cleaning windows, unblocking gutters every year, cleaning gutters and fascia boards etc.We were asked about the dirty discoloured render and what could be done to remove the dirty green staining. We advised on our system of brushing and scrubbing the worst of the dirt off, treatment the render then finally painting.

We started works on this property in the summer of 2016 by our usual process of firstly sheeting up all windows to protect them from paint and dirt, then cleaning down all the render with our specialised cleaning poles and brushes. To make sure all the fungi and algae was fully eradicated we also applied a fungicidal wash to all areas. After leaving the fungicidal wash a few weeks to work into the render, we then started on the preparation for the painting works this involved by firstly apply a stabilising solution to all parts of the render paying particular attention to any cracks and holes. We then started filling up all the cracks and holes ready for the painting. For most of our customers we advice on Dulux Weathershield Masonry Paints for painting render we feel the Dulux range of paints to be some of the best paints on the market. This job was completed from start to finish in 2 weeks while the customer was away to minimis disturbance, we received high praise for the works and the customer also left us a review.

Future Proof & Protect your Property

60 Kings Street, Maldon – Exterior Renovation

Crytal Clear Ltd were approached by Mr and Mrs Bullard after moving into their period property with regards to the exterior painting of the rendering, rain water system and general condition of their property. The render was mainly in a stable condition but had many poor repairs and patch ups over the years, the render also had no drip bead which is designed to help push rain water away from the property. The complete rain water system (gutters etc) were also long past renewal and not fit for purpose. After a close and though inspection of the property we advised that the property was due a complete exterior renevation. This included relaying new render with a drip bead, totally new rain water system, repairing and painting fascias and soffits, painting new render, painting window sells and some other minor tasks that the customer had requested.

Within two weeks of being contacted we had submitted our free no obligation quote with regards to carrying out the work. Crystal Clear Ltd started work on 16th May 2014 organising the complete project from start to finish we arranged a professional scaffolding company to the property, and we supplied a highly skilled professional team of renderers to re-render the property. The final stage of renovation and decoration involved replacing the old rain water system and painting all the exterior property.

We started on the top fascias which were fully sanded with an electric sander to remove all loose flakey and excess paint, then lightly by hand to smooth over the surface. We then treated the wood with a wood preserver to penetrate and seal the wood, then we filled all the holes and joints up, finally we painted all the woodwork with 3 full coats of Bedec Semi Gloss Barn Paint. We then applied a watered down sealing coat of Dulux Masonry Paint to all areas to fully seal the render, then we applied two full top coats of Dulux Masonry paint. The window sells were heavily scraped and sanded to remove all the loose paint and to smooth over the surface, we advised no to fill the slight holes and cracked with regards to the window sells as these defects would add character to the house while still remaining sound. The Floplast rain water system was installed by a fully qualified carpenter.

Crystal Clear Ltd started the project on May 16th and finished on 22nd June, 5 weeks 2 days from start to finish, with glowing feed back from our clients and their family, friends and neighbours with regards to the transformation of the property, we were more than satisified with the final finish of this renovation project.

Crystal Clear Ltd are able to offer a highly skilled professional work force with a keen interest in completing exceptional levels of quality workmanship, and an attention to detail second to none.
