An award winning Cheshire property has been refurbished using Render Systems from Alumasc.
Owned by David and Margie Edwards, the magnificent Bankhall House was originally completed in 2008, to a traditional Georgian/Queen Ann architectural design, earning them the prestigious title of Daily Telegraph Best Traditional House in the UK for 2010.
Following some initial problems with the original render system, David Edwards embarked on a 4-month study of the render market, in search of a system that would complement and protect his beloved Bankhall.
Following rigorous research into suitable products and approved contractors, David brought in Alumasc Registered Installer Bruce Day of Cheshire Facades, who, according to David, “worked alongside Alumasc’s technical team to show passion above and beyond that of their competitors”.
David, Bruce, and the installation team, worked closely together in the investigation and resolution of the initial render problems, and specified Alumasc’s MR Polymer Render System with a decorative Silicone Render finish, as the solution.
Bruce Day has a well-established relationship with Alumasc and was confident that their products presented the right solution for Bankhall House. He comments:
“The traditional architecture at Bankhall presented a number of challenges with regard to application of the chosen render system. Intricacies in the stonework of the main house and also balustrades and plinths in the garden, demanded a robust system that could be easily applied. I have always found Alumasc systems easy to work with and in this case they also provided a perfect ‘cream’ colour match to the existing finish.”
David and Margie are thrilled with both the installation process and the result. David comments:
“Activity on site was reviewed daily by Cheshire Facades, and snagging was an integral part of my relationship with Bruce and his installers. Bruce insisted, “Our work must satisfy the customer – always”. I was also aware that render products have developed technically since the original installation, and Alumasc were able to offer all of the “cutting edge technology” required to give us the result we wanted. We feel like we’ve been given a new house.”
Alumasc Polymer and Silicone Render Systems are BBA Approved and fully warrantied. They are less susceptible to cracking and crazing than traditional plain render and are fully weather resistant whilst remaining vapour permeable.
