Properla Paint: A Savvy Investment For Landlords?

properla paint a savvy investment for landlords

The number of landlords in the UK is on the rise, with around 2.5million landlords currently renting out properties up and down the UK.

As a landlord, you have a responsibility to your tenants to provide them with a habitable property and a responsibility to yourself to keep the property in good condition to minimise expensive repairs and maximise profit from the investment.
Investment in property is very different to other investments; there’s a lot that you need to consider in order to make sure that you get the most back from your investment. One of these essentials, is making sure that your property is protected.

Properla is a home improvement product that many homeowners in the UK have already invested in to protect their homes, but does that mean that Properla paint is a savvy investment for landlords?

It’s time to find out…

IN A NUTSHELL: What Is Properla Paint?

The first thing that you need to know about Properla is that it’s a product used on external surfaces, but it’s not like your standard everyday masonry paint.  Properla is technically a superior wall coating that has been created to do much more than solely decorate a property.

The professionally applied wall coatings can be applied to most exterior surfaces, including walls, roofs and fences. The coatings can be used to create a coloured or clear finish on walls and are designed to last for many years.

Properla comes in many forms, such as masonry crème and façade coating and its primary benefit is its hydrophobic properties. A hydrophobic product is designed to repel water, which makes Properla coatings an incredibly beneficial investment for many reasons…

For landlords, the benefits of Properla are more in the property protection that the product offers. With less chance of internal mould, protection against cracks and a reduced risk of cavity wall insulation getting damaged, Properla can help to prevent some very costly outgoings

How Can Properla Benefit a Rental Property?

The hydrophobic nature of Properla creates a strong and effective barrier that protects external walls from a big problem, water absorption. After Properla has been applied, water absorption is reduced by more than 95%, leaving walls a lot drier. 

This solves numerous problems, as water in walls can be very detrimental to the structural integrity and the energy efficiency of a property. A damp external wall can:

  • Increase the risk of large cracks forming as water gets into the wall and freezes.
  • Lead to external and internal mould growth, which is highly damaging to health.
  • Create a damp internal environment that is unpleasant.
  • Damage cavity wall insulation and render it near useless. 
  • Increase the thermal conductivity of masonry, which means heat will escape from the inside of the property much easier.
  • Decrease the overall energy-efficiency of a property and potentially impact the EPC rating.

Once Properla has been installed, damp wall problems will be a thing of the past, the walls will be better able to stand up to weather damage, the surface of the wall will be self-cleaning for lower maintenance and mould, moss and algae will be less likely to grow 

Is Properla Paint A Worthwhile Investment?

The benefits of Properla are plentiful, but does this mean that the initial investment is going to pay off?

For tenants living in a property with Properla coated walls, the benefits are direct. The property will be warmer and more comfortable, the house will look better and be easier to clean and it won’t take as much energy to heat the property.

For landlords, the benefits of Properla are more in the property protection that the product offers. With less chance of internal mould, protection against cracks and a reduced risk of cavity wall insulation getting damaged, Properla can help to prevent some very costly outgoings.

So, is Properla a savvy investment? If you want to minimise the risk of the weather damaging your investment, it certainly is!
