Exterior painting with self-cleaning masonry paint 

Once your facades are coated with the water-repellent paint by STO, dirt particles are unable to cling to this surface and flow off with the rain droplets - like water off a duck's back. This coating literally keeps building walls clean, which guarantees durability and color stability. In return your maintenance costs are lower than with common masonry paint. 

What makes this product unique, is Lotus-Effect® technology. The StoCoat Lotusan exterior coating possesses a highly water-repellent surface similar to that of the lotus leaf.  A lotus plant leaf is unable to keep hold of dirt particles. Dirt simply flows off with the rain droplets that fall onto the plant. Its microstructure has been modeled on the lotus plant to minimize the contact area for dirt and water.  StoCoat Lotusan has been specially engineered to act identical to the surface of a lotus plant’s leaves :

Dirt and water cannot be hold of.

The facade of the building will stay clean and attractive for many years.

What our clients say about their experience with Deco-Furbish:

Superb job done at my property by Deco-Furbish. Property needed extensive repairs but as it's an old property I wanted to retain the character or the building. We had some issues along the way, most notably the weather. But the company strove to complete the works to an exemplary standard, despite the weather being against us. To say I'm delighted with the end product is an understatement. Very happy to recommend to other prospective customers. Micheal D., Gneeveguilla, Co.Kerry
