Durable and beautiful though it is, over time simple rainwater can visibly decay and stain unprotected concrete, brick and stone cleaning surfaces.

When rainwater soaks into the masonry it dissolves natural salts that recrystallise when the surfaces dries.

The salts build up in the pores from repeated wet/dry cycles. In cold weather water freezes and expands inside causing cracks to appear, at first the cracks and fractures are microscopic however they do not stay that way.

Combined with other natural forces, such as extreme temperatures and biological growths, this will progressively decay and turn an expensive surface into an eyesore and liability.

It will also produce efflorescence, limescale, damp walls, lichen growth and rust staining.

As soon as your building has been cleaned let us protect it with a breathable, durable continuous air and water resistant barrier, it’s a protection that lasts for several years.

All of our surface protection products and services are supplied by Tensid UK and applied by our expert stone and masonry technicians. 

This will afford you huge savings in the long run, massively cutting the costs of maintenance by protecting your surface today instead of repairing it tomorrow.

SURFACE PROTECTION, PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE

As the saying goes, prevention is better than cure. If you’re unsure about whether surface protection will benefit your home or business, this is an important thing to keep in mind.  It’s easier to protect a surface now and avoid any damage than it to try and repair it in the future. One of the biggest differences between protection and repair is the cost. You’re likely to save a lot of money by being proactive and pre-empting any possible damage. If you don’t protect a surface, it could be costly and time-consuming to fix if it happens to sustain any damage.  Before you decide it’s not necessary, think of what it could save you.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF SURFACE PROTECTION

Saving time and money isn’t the only reason to choose to protect a surface. When we apply a protective barrier to any surface, we do it because it’s going to keep it looking great for years. The barrier we apply is resistant against water and air, which protects surfaces from damp and other problems. It’s also still breathable, to prevent moisture from getting trapped underneath it. It offers protection from a variety of things, from rain and wind to moss and lichen. Without protection, even if expensive damage to your surface doesn’t occur, it can slowly start to crumble away, causing problems and making it look run-down too.

SURFACE PROTECTION ISN'T JUST FOR OLD BUILDINGS

It’s not only historical, listed and older buildings that can benefit from being protected. Any stone, brick or concrete surface is better protected with our surface protection service. If you want to make any surface more weatherproof, you can keep off rainwater and other elements so that it is resistant to erosion. Make a surface last longer and reduce the amount of necessary maintenance to keep it looking clean and pristine.
