- Introduction: This case study focuses on the successful completion of an exterior render repair and exterior painting job at Stockham School by Advanced Damp. The project aimed to restore the school’s exterior surfaces, improve their durability, and enhance the overall aesthetic appeal. The following sections outline the job process and the steps taken by Advanced Damp to achieve the desired outcome.
- Client Requirements: Stockham School approached Advanced Damp with the following requirements:
- Repair and restore the deteriorated exterior render on the school building.
- Enhance the durability and weather resistance of the render.
- Apply a fresh coat of exterior paint to improve the appearance of the building.
- Complete the project within a specified timeline and budget.
- Initial Assessment and Planning: Upon receiving the project, Advanced Damp conducted a comprehensive assessment of the school building’s exterior. This involved identifying areas of render damage, assessing the underlying causes, and evaluating the scope of work required. Based on the assessment, a detailed project plan was developed, outlining the step-by-step process and the required resources.
- Preparation and Surface Repair: Before commencing any work, the Advanced Damp team ensured proper preparation of the surfaces. This included cleaning the exterior walls to remove dirt, debris, and loose paint. Any damaged or deteriorated render was carefully removed to provide a stable foundation for the repairs. The team also addressed underlying issues such as damp and mould, ensuring a clean and dry surface.
- Render Repair and Reinforcement: To repair the damaged render, Advanced Damp utilized high-quality materials that matched the existing render’s texture and colour. The team applied a suitable render mix, ensuring proper adhesion to the substrate. Special attention was given to critical areas prone to water penetration, such as window sills, corners, and joints. Advanced Damp also reinforced the render with a waterproofing agent to enhance its resistance to moisture.
- Surface Priming: Once the repaired render had sufficiently cured, the team proceeded with surface priming. This involved applying a primer coat to create a strong bond between the render and the exterior paint. The primer also acted as a protective layer, further improving the durability of the render.
- Exterior Painting: The final stage of the project involved applying a fresh coat of exterior paint to the rendered surfaces. Advanced Damp worked closely with the school authorities to select an appropriate colour scheme that aligned with the school’s branding and architectural style. The team used high-quality exterior paint, ensuring a uniform and long-lasting finish. Multiple coats were applied, allowing for proper coverage and colour depth.
- Quality Assurance and Completion: Upon completion of the exterior render repair and paint job, Advanced Damp conducted a thorough quality check. The team ensured that all surfaces were properly coated, free from defects, and visually appealing. The project was considered complete once the school authorities inspected and approved the work.
- Conclusion: Advanced Damp successfully carried out the exterior render repair and exterior painting job at Stockham School. The project resulted in a restored and aesthetically pleasing building exterior, providing enhanced protection against weather elements. By meticulously following the project plan and employing skilled professionals, Advanced Damp delivered a high-quality outcome within the agreed timeline and budget. The successful completion of this project further solidified Advanced Damp’s reputation as a reliable and proficient provider of exterior renovation services.
