Exterior painting of 17th Century Manor House


(Russ Pike) #1

Preparation was key to this project: I have decorated this house 3 times inside and out over the past 25 years. Unfortunately the last time the exterior was painted the owner used another painted as I was unavailable, this resulted in this “Howdy Partner” decorator filling all the cracked masonary with decorators caulk - WRONG!!

This resulted in extensive cracking to the original limestone render which had to be raked out and re filled by us, with a suitable lime based mortar.
