Professional crack repairs
Cracks in walls are not only unsightly, but can also be an indicator of structural problems. Don't leave anything to chance and get it repaired by professionals.
Mistakes to avoid with crack repair
Cracks are treated very often in a rather insufficient way... Usually people patch it up with standard filler before painting over it, while some have even been known to use caulk! Unfortunately, this is a waste of time and money, as the crack will inevitably be back within a matter of weeks. So what should be done?
How to repair cracks in walls
Obviously your crack appeared for a reason. So we set about opening it up and removing the affected area beneath.
Next, we will prime the area and re-render it using a special material that has been reinforced with fibreglass for added resilience and durability. After this comes a process of priming, skimming and priming again.
Once complete, we cut into the edges with a blade and apply a flexible agent, on top of which a fresh coat of paint can be applied.
The following photos show our specialist crack repair process.
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.
