Wall Coatings - Frequently Asked Questions
What type of surfaces can your wall coatings be applied to?
Our wide range of solutions can be applied to pebbledash, roughcast, render, brick, stone, slate, tiles, driveways and more!
How long does the 5 stage procedure usually take?
For an average detached house the wall coating process takes around 5 working days, but the surveyor will provide an accurate schedule after measuring your property.
Will the original surface of my home look any different?
No. Our wall coatings are designed to retain the architectural look of the property.
What colours are available?
We have a wide range that most clients select from, but we can have any BSI colour manufactured, and we offer a clear product when you do not wish a colour.
Are the coatings flexible and breathable?
Yes. The coatings are extremely flexible and elastic allowing the house to contract and expand with temperature changes. They have a high permeability so that water vapour can escape and there is no moisture build up.
Will it crack, split or peel over time?
For over 40yrs these coatings have proven to hold up against the most extreme weather conditions, unlike ordinary masonry paints!
Do you offer a guarantee?
Yes every job comes with a written transferable 15year warranty even though the wall coatings have a life expectancy of 20-25 years.
Is there any specialist equipment that you require?
On some contracts we may require scaffolding or a cherry picker. This is a non-profit making exercise and is used through necessity. Clients will be advised in advance.
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 trellis that may be attached to the wall areas. The only other requirement is access to a water tap.
Can I afford these types of protective coatings?
Obviously our high tech wall coating systems are more expensive than paint, but they include repairs, weatherproofing and more that, other options do not. Their extended life span also offers a greater return on investment. With Anchor Wall Coatings, your home will be maintenance free and looking fresh year after year.
