Exterior walls white painted with dirt-resistant paint

Pollution and Algae Growth on Exterior Walls?

A freshly painted building is a beautiful sight, with clean, crisp lines and no marks to spoil the facade. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to maintain your homes freshly painted exterior. Staining and discolouration become more apparent and unsightly as time goes by.

Because of the weather conditions here in Ireland, the problem is a serious one for property owners. Buildings suffer severe exposure to the elements and the moisture in the air which, combined with dirt, provides an ideal environment for algae to grow.

Extending the Life of your Home with Expert Exterior House Painters

The solution is to use the new technology found in dirt-resistant paint. Once this paint is applied to the outside of your house, it will keep your property clean and well-kept by discouraging the growth of algae and fungus and repelling unsightly staining.

Dirt will simply be washed down by the falling rain. Look at our pictures below of a recent exterior house painting project. This house had been painted in 2017 and while we were doing interior painting for our clients, we had the opportunity to take these photos in February 2023. All exterior wall surfaces are clean and free from soiling. 

When you are looking for an eco friendly, sustainable paint for the exterior of your house, then Sto paint is the perfect solution, because it's water-based and free from plasticizers.

Customer Testimonial:  

"The Deco-Furbish team were a pleasure to deal with and utmost professionals in every aspect of the job from start to finish. Valuable, expert advice was offered at the colour choice stage. When working on site all painters were exceptionally clean and meticulous in covering pathways etc…. You would hardly know they were onsite from the quiet, orderly way they went about their business. I would definitely recommend Deco-Furbish to anyone looking to paint their house and will definitely be using them again in the future."
