Protective coatings effectively shield buildings and structures from environmental damage such as harsh weather conditions, chemical attack, fire, UV exposure, corrosion, abrasion and purposeful damage. The protection these specialist products provide not only help to prolong the life expectancy of your asset but they support health and safety measures and can reduce risks and hazards to you, your staff or to the public.
Applying protective coatings to building or structures delivers long term performance, returns on your investment and will save thousands of pounds in comparison with the cost of replacing old materials for new.

With advances in technology, the development and innovation of protective coatings has greatly improved over the last decade. Protective coating manufactures are able to provide guarantees on their products; some offering 10 - 25 years guaranteed protection when applied.
To ensure that these products deliver the protection they are specified to provide it is crucial that the product is applied correctly. If the manufacturer guidelines have not been followed and a product has not been applied correctly then potentially the product will fail, which could lead to health and safety risks; and it would also mean that any product guarantee will be void and you could lose thousands of pounds.
Installing a protective coating requires careful attention to important factors such as thorough surface preparation, correct method of application and (in the first instance) the selection of a suitable product for a specific situation.
