Durable and beautiful though it is, over time simple rainwater can visibly decay and stain unprotected masonry 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.
