The exterior of your house could look freshly painted for many years
A freshly painted building is a beautiful sight, with clean lines and no marks to spoil the facade. Unfortunately it can be difficult to maintain this freshly painted look.
Soiling and staining will 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, combined with dirt, provides a good environment for algae to grow.
There is a way to keep your facade looking as fresh as the day it was painted, however. Our painters and decorators paint the outside of your house with Sto Lotusan. This water repellent masonry paint will keep your property looking clean and well kept, repelling algae and fungus, avoiding unsightly soiling.
"Our decision to contract Deco-Furbish to paint the exterior of our house proved to be a wise move. Their attention to detail is impressive and the various preparation stages has resulted in an excellent finish. The choice of colours is extensive and the quality of the paint is superb."
Our team of painters and decorators brought this Irish cottage in Skibbereen, Co.Cork, 85 years old, back to life while our clients spent their holidays abroad.
Cracks have been repaired and re-rendered, rotten timber to windows replaced.
After the whole building now has several coatings with special primer, textured paint and water repellent, dirt resistant masonry paint by Sto, it is prepared to stand the elements, algae and fungus attacks for many years to come.
This album shows some pictures of the process before and after.
What are the benefits of Sto Lotusan self-cleaning masonry paint:
As well as making exterior walls highly resistant to dirt and water, the paint provides a high level of protection against soiling, helping to keep facades cleaner for longer. Thanks to its unique technology, walls painted with Sto Lotusan, dry very quickly after rain has fallen and have a superior weather and chalking resistance as well as being UV stable. And, not to forget, Sto paints are water-repellent, yet free from solvents and plasticizers.
Buildings painted wit Sto Lotusan have lower costs for maintenance and the value of your property will be increased significantly. Sto Lotusan doesn't just provide protection against water, dirt and algae, it looks great as well. The product is available in more than 800 colours, so you can choose the one that's perfect for your building. Deco-Furbish can still top that with providing colour drafts, to ease your decision in finding the right colour.
How does Sto Lotusan masonry paint work?
The amazing technology that makes Sto Lotusan water repellent masonry paint so effective, is based on the natural water repelling properties of a lotus leaf. Lotus-Effect technology gives the exterior coating an extremely water repellent surface with similarities to that of the lotus leaf. The leaves of the lotus plant are adapted to allow water and dirt to simply slide off them. The micro structure of Sto Lotusan paint has been developed to be similar to that of the lotus plant, so that, when the paint is applied to exterior wall, both dirt and moisture will flow off the wall leaving no trace behind.
