Specialist Decorating Contracts

 

Sizergh Castle

The external painting and part internal decorations of Sizergh Castle took place over the course of a two year contract alongside of other maintainance work carried out by a main contractor. The building was scaffolded and tented to ensure continuity of the work and protection from the elements. External painting included fastidious preparation and painting with a specialist three coat micro-porous paint system to exterior woodwork with similar preparation and the application of a specialist three coat rust inhibiting paint system to metal casement windows and rain-water goods etc. Interior decorations were undertaken to the Chapel and access staircase including lime-wash treatment to new ceilings and fire-retardent coatings to staircase doors.

Thirlmere Aquaduct Bridges

The preparation and painting of the famous Thirlmere Aquaduct Bridges was undertaken through the difficult conditions of a Lake District Winter! Preparation was by means of shot-blasting with geo-textile sheeting being used on scaffolding to ensure no rust or paint particles fell into the river below. A specialist moisture curing paint system was used that ensured painting could continue even in conditions of higher levels of moisture. All painting was overseen by a paint inspector employed by the water authority.

Country House with Holiday Lets (Penrith)

This country house with holiday lets had to be completed 'out of season'. Snow and other inclement weather conditions had therefore to be contended with and specialist micro-porous/flexible paint systems had to be utilised to ensure successful completion of all external surfaces. Pliolite based masonry paints also had to be used to enable this work to continue through the winter months.

Morecambe Stone Jetty

The famous Morecambe Stone Jetty had to be shut off to enable shot-blasting of cast iron railing posts to take place prior to painting with specialist coatings designed to inhibit corrosion of steel found in salty environments. The biggest problem we found though was that during high spring tides, the railings and posts gained a salt-water soaking twice a day, every day! This proved difficult to combat. In addition to the Stone Jetty more than a mile of other railings and posts also had to be prepared and painted. Again with specialist coatings designed to inhibit rust and protect steel in salty environs.
