A combination of remedial products and renders by Saint-Gobain Weber has been skilfully used in a private renovation project in Newport, South Wales.
A survey of this brick and stone faced former granary, built in 1820, confirmed extensive levels of damp and a high level of water ingress.
It was essential to cover the original stonework to achieve a sealed, watertight surface – disappointing news for the property’s new owner. But a combination of Weber’s high-performance materials and the skills of specialist applicator M P Plastering of Somerset has resulted in an equally attractive visual effect which now has the benefit of a weatherproof outer skin.
The following Weber products were used: weber CL150 to clean the building; weberend aid as a key coat for the render; weberend OCR base coat render to cover the original stone and brick fascia; weberset SPF to fix the brick slips, which were applied to retain some element of the original aesthetics; and weberpral M monoucouche for the final decorative surface coat.
