Here are the two elevations that need to be painted as soon as practicable. This is due to the Rightmove estate agent coming to Sannox Hotel to photograph the property for the sales and updated aerial drone pictures…

Ideally protect with hazard/stone/grit free carpet turned updise down and then with a sheet of 1mmm plyboard on top to ensure the new flat roof is NOT accidentally torn/pierced/damaged. THANKYOU.

Ordinary Masonry Paint

Is Adequate

But not as good as the specialist

Northern Lighthouse Board product.

We noticed this in earlier projects…

Indeed, we wish we had this high specification

Northern Lighthouse Board

paint many years ago.

It is world class for buildings in coastal; location.

Whereas lower quality paint is just not up to the job.
