Do ProPERLA Products Protect Against Brick Spalling?

do-properla-products-protect-against-brick-spalling

At least one side of a brick wall is often exposed to the elements. All day, every day, such surfaces will endure rain, snow, sleet and changes in temperatures from very hot, to very cold.

Water will often find its way inside even tiny cracks in the brickwork, and then freeze when conditions get colder. This freezing causes the water to expand, placing the brickwork under stress from the inside.

The amount of water that does get in is often very small, meaning that damage done by the water freezing is usually negligible.

Over time, however, these small amounts of damage can accumulate to be something far more significant. This leads to brick spalling, leading many people to ask the question – do ProPERLA products protect against brick spalling?

How Do ProPERLA Products Protect Against Brick Spalling?

Spalling in brickwork has the potential to require rather costly repairs. If the structural integrity of the building suffers as a result of spalling, then it may even make the property unfit for use.

Often, it may be all but impossible to replace just a part of a wall, meaning that major renovation work could be required.

This can take a great deal of time, money and inconvenience to put right. Instead of allowing this to happen in the first place, it is much better to protect the brickwork instead to ensure the structural integrity of the building remains intact.

Fight Water – Fight Spalling

If water is unable to penetrate beneath the surface of a brick, then the process of spalling cannot occur. ProPERLA products help to create a protective barrier on the surface that prevents the water from getting into even the tiniest of cracks.

ProPERLA products are hydrophobic, which means that they repel water, so water just rolls off the surface instantly. ProPERLA can even penetrate up to 17mm into the surface of brickwork and other surfaces, helping to ensure that nothing gets through.

Protecting More Than Just Your Walls

In addition to protecting brickwork, ProPERLA will also protect other materials such as roofing tiles, paving stones, concrete slabs, and terracing.

This helps to ensure protection for the whole home, plus the garden and other areas of your property.

If you are considering using ProPERLA products on your surfaces, you will find that there are several benefits in doing so. Not only will you help prevent the need for serious repairs at some point in the future, you will also help to save money by reducing your energy bills!

Improving Heat Insulation Properties

In asking – how do ProPERLA products protect against brick spalling – you are likely to also find that the products have additional benefits. One of the most notable of these is the products’ abilities to improve the insulation properties of a building.

Water is an excellent conductor of heat, meaning that it allows heat to pass through it easily.

This, in turn, means that it has a negative effect on the insulating properties of walls and other surfaces. With water on the surface and penetrating into the wall, it is much easier for heat to pass through the wall, and escape.

Less Moisture Equals More Heat Retention

In not allowing water to collect on the surface and seep into the brickwork, you are preventing an easy passage for heat to escape from. This can help to save on your energy costs as it will be easier for you to keep your home warm.

These savings will help to recover any costs of using ProPERLA products. In the meantime, they will also help to make your home a more comfortable place to live.

Dirt, Dust and Grime

In addition to preventing damage, ProPERLA will also help to maintain the aesthetics of your property. Exposed to the elements, it is inevitable that exterior walls and other surfaces will accumulate dirt and grime over time.

These will become ingrained and begin to look unsightly, resulting in the need to have them cleaned. This can be quite difficult, though, and may well require specialist skills and equipment in order to get the job done. This can be both costly and inconvenient.

Easy-Peasy Lemon Squeezy Cleaning

With ProPERLA products, however, exterior walls and other surfaces are protected by an invisible barrier that doesn’t allow for dirt and grime to take a hold. Instead, it will simply wash away with ease whenever it rains.

Not only does this help prevent the need for potentially expensive and inconvenient cleaning, it also helps to keep your property looking as good as new for many years to come.

If you are considering using ProPERLA products on your surfaces, you will find that there are several benefits in doing so. Not only will you help prevent the need for serious repairs at some point in the future, you will also help to save money by reducing your energy bills.

In addition, your home will be kept looking as good as it possibly can. Do ProPERLA products protect against brick spalling? Yes, they absolutely do!
