When it came to the exterior redecoration of Regency House in Royal Leamington Spa, the freeholders of the building had no hesitation in specifying Andura Coatings once again as the external finish.
Specialist contractors, John Stedeford & Sons, were successful in winning the tender based on their submission and their long experience of quality work. The external decorating of the 1970s block of 60 apartments was completed in a three month period ending in September 2017. To limit disruption to the site, the contracting firm used three cherry pickers instead of scaffolding which proved to be much more flexible when applying the finish all around the building. The whole building was power washed first to remove any grime and dirt then all the windows were masked with plastic sheets before application of the Andura Pro-Flex coating. Some 1600 litres of Pro-Flex was used to cover 3220 sq.m. of exterior wall. Mark Stedeford, one of the directors of John Stedeford & Sons commented, “We thought that the Andura product was excellent, it was a solid product and easy to apply, we will definitely use Andura’s coatings again.”
Andura’s Pro-Flex technology provides excellent long-term protection and decoration for buildings. The elastomeric properties of Pro-Flex technology give excellent resistance to subsequent cracks in the substrate. Using the very latest advances in coatings technology, Andura has now developed Pro-Flex Ultimate which is specially formulated to combine all the benefits of Pro-Flex technology with improved breathability, water and dirt resistance for a harder wearing, longer lasting and beautiful finish to keep exterior walls in top condition. Pro-Flex is classified as ‘highly breathable’ and ‘highly water resistant’ as tested in accordance with German (DIN), European (EN) and International (ISO) standards. The addition of silicon resin and silane to Pro-Flex considerably improves resistance to dirt pick-up.
