How we address larger cracks in walls and ceilings
Cracks are treated very often in a rather insufficient way... Filling with standard filler or even caulk!! And then painting it over…. With this approach they will be back soon, sometimes within weeks…
We prime and re-render wall cracks or ceiling cracks using top grade filling material and our professional know-how.
The correct way and as shown on our pictures: We open these cracks and remove the affected area, then prime and rerender with fibreglass reinforced render. Prime again and skim with an appropriate product, prime again. Then cut into edges with a blade and apply flexible agent. Now the paint can be applied.
Hairline cracks resp. cracks up to 1mm receive flexible “render”, that tolerates movement up to 1.2mm.

Read one of our testimonials regarding crack repairs:
Deco-Furbish have completed work, including restoration and decoration of our property, to a very high standard. Before painting the walls areas of the plaster surface had to be removed and then made good using a hi-tech flexible filling material as technically advised by their representative. This work was carried out to a high professional standard with remarkable cleanliness and attention to detail. Furnishings were carefully moved as needed. Advice was given on suitable colour matches and combinations of subtle shades for each room. Again the whole painting process was carried out with care and attention to cleanliness. The painting team moved and replaced all the furniture as required. The painters were always punctual so we could plan our own time around them. We would certainly have no hesitation in using them again for future projects.
