External woodwork such as window frames, doors, and fascia boards need painting or staining every three years to stop them rotting. Rain, frost, and the sunshine all combine to damage paint and let water into the wood. Properties close to the sea should be checked more often as the salt air can damage paintwork faster.
Tynemouth Decorators, therefore, recommend their customers to use a flexible undercoat and gloss system, this helps to resist cracking and can last up to six years if used correctly on new timber and as part of a full weather-shield paint system.
Scaffolding can be arranged for customers’ properties through a local, approved contractor.
Our Exterior Maintenance Scheme
All exterior painted surfaces should be repainted before the paint starts to flake and peel away.
Tynemouth Decorators have devised a simple maintenance system to ensure that your building’s exterior painted parts last as long as possible, the main aim is to stop any wood decaying to a point where a major overhaul is necessary. The EMS (Exterior Maintenance Scheme) becomes available to all properties previously painted by Tynemouth Decorators. This helps properties to remain in good condition and therefore keeps costs down for future repaints.
EMS checklist includes
- Yearly check up of all previously painted exterior woodwork
- On the spot repairs to any damaged areas found.
- Removal of leaves from gutters.
- Handyman service available for minor joinery repairs.
- A full report on exterior paint condition.
- Discounted rate for the next full exterior paint job using this scheme.
