We was asked to carry out the external spray coating works on this London property for the
Channel 4 TV program " Property Ladder " as presented by Sarah Beeny.
The property started out as a 3 bedroom house and was transformed into an unusual property with
underground rooms and basement courtyards.
The specification required for the coating to be a self cleaning fine texture finish allowing for the brick
lines to be shown, plus it should be able to withstand ground water pressure in the basement areas..
PROPERTY : CHANNEL 4 TV LONDON.
PROPERTY : HASTINGS COUNTRY HOUSE.
This was a property that the present owners family had owned for many generations and had seen many
alterations made to it over the years. The present owner had "KENITEX " applied back in 1969 and still had
the previous contract details..
We was surprised that the walls was still in good condition after all this time and just needed powerwashing and
needle gunning to check adhesion.
The main problem was the chimney stacks where new chimney pots had been replaced 20 years ago and
had disturbed the coating on the very top of the stacks............as a result water had got in and caused a breakdown of the coating around the top of the stacks.....still the owner was not complaining 1 paint job in
39 years is good value "

PROPERTY ; SOMERSBY HOUSE LINCOLNSHIRE >>>>>Birthplace of Lord Tennyson,
This large country property was the birhplace of Lord Tennyson .....poet of Queen Victoria .
The property was interesting for us because this property had also been sprayed with Kenitex some 30 years previous by the present
The new owners decided it was time the property was renovated and after a new roof was installed and internal decorations finished it was time to give the exterior walls a face lift.
This contract is shown in our videos ( link above )
The walls when cleaned up was also like the hastings contract still in reasonable condition and the only major repair work was stiching a few
structual cracks and repointing bricks .
PROPERTY : BEACH HOUSE IN SUSSEX
Here at MASTEX we reallay enjoy our work we work on some fantastic properties in beautifull locations >>like this house on the
beach in sussex.
The house was only 30 years old and built in concrete blocks, the client was painting this property "every 2 years" but the paint was not
protecting the structure.and as a result the salt weather had taken its toll on the property.
We replaced numerous blocks, cavity wall ties, and spent 3 weeks just preparing the surface structure, on stormy days the waves would hit
the walls of the house. and ruin a whole days work of preparation.>>>>>>>>>but in the end the contact was completed and the client
was delighted with the end result.>>>>>>>>>and so was we !
PROPERTY : LARGE HOUSE LIVERPOOL
This very large victorian house in liverpool was a challange in its self because the old cobbledash was in a very bad state of repair
this would be very difficult to match in the repairs using the traditional "tyrolean gun approach ".As we still ocansonly carryout the odd pebbledash contract we decided the best option for invisable repairs on this job would be to reinstate the repairs using the old traditional method of " Heavy Shingle / Cobbledash method " the results was first class.
