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.
