In January 2000 AJM Decorating was approached about the external painting of all the buildings at Cowan Head, in the beautiful Lake District. We got in touch with international paint firm Sikkens who came and assessed the works required. From this Sikkens produced a bespoke paint specification for the exact requirements of the estate which included a five year wood stain that will remain robust enough to withstand the local climate. We are pleased to say we have now been painting one of the 5 buildings at Cowan Head annually for the last nine years.
The buildings were mostly scaffolded although cherry pickers were used where possible to keep costs to a minimum. All the woodworks had Sikkens B L Opaque applied to the windows, walls were power-washed down, coated with fungicidal wash and given one mist coat and two full coats of Dulux Weathershield Masonry Paint. All works were guaranteed for four years thanks to our inclusion in the Dulux Trade Contract Partnership scheme.
