Listed Property Exterior Renovation
At Avery Rose Decorators, we provide a painting and decorating service for listed and period properties.
Redecorating listed properties can be a minefield of paperwork due to the nature of the buildings. Historic England have guidelines which can advise decorators about the work they wish to carry out on listed properties.
Regular redecoration of the exteriors of listed properties is advised as it can help prevent decay, especially for external woodwork such as that on period properties. Specialist decorators use ‘breathable’ paint, such as lime wash to protect the exteriors from moisture damage.
However, some materials in older houses; some brick, stone and concrete walls for example, need to be free from paint to allow damp to evaporate.
The Met Office produces our weather reports and also for many countries across the globe, from their offices in Exeter.
Dulux Trade paint was chosen to work with the construction company Willmott Dixon and S&S Decorators on the building to carry out work including interior painting to offices, walls and corridors and exterior walls. Dulux was chosen to help enhance the look of the futuristic building. Dulux Trade Diamond Matt paints were chosen for all the interior walls, because of its reputation on high usage areas and its resistance to staining. The paint is also famous for its ability to be cleaned easily without having to be scrubbed or polished.
