Let’s start with a simple question. Do your exterior walls leave a lot left to be desired? And do you paint the exterior walls often, like, every 2 or 3 years? If so, we’ll let you in on a secret: there’s an easy option on offer…and it saves you substantial money as well.
In comparison to normal paint, which lasts several years on average, energy saving coatings can last up to 25 years, making them a highly cost-effective solution. And unlike paint, wall coatings do not fade, crack, or peel. There is no need for regular maintenance every 2 years.
Less maintenance means less money spent on upkeep. The result? More money to allocate to the things that matter.

Exterior Walls: Why Protection Should Be Your Top Priority
How protected are your outside walls? And what offers the best protection against inclement weather overall? For starters, it’s not paint. Wall coatings offer protection against dirt, pollution, moisture, rain, algae, and much more.
Most people buy houses with paint on the exterior walls, and fail to take the time to discover that more cost-effective alternatives are easily available. And while your house might look nice from the outside, a nice appearance is all that normal paint will provide.
Living in Britain, you are probably familiar with the harsh British weather. Normal paint does not offer any protection from it. And while normal paint is cheap to buy, it is a prime example of the phrase “you get what you pay for.”
Energy Saving Coatings: Problems Solved
Before we explore the differences between wall paint and energy saving coatings in greater detail, let’s look at some telltale signs that your home’s exterior is a persistently poor performer:
– Does your property suffer from cracked or hollow rendering?
– Does your property suffer from mouldy, green, and dirty walls?
– Do you notice condensation on your internal walls?
– Do you regularly pay eye-wateringly high heating bills-even in Summer?
– Have you noticed that your internal walls are always cold?
– Do you have to frequently re-paint the exterior?
– Does your home suffer from penetrating damp, or stains on the wall?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, it’s time to take back control of your brickwork…and your energy bills to boot.
