Crown Trade‘s expertise were recently used by Bootham School in York, to protect the historic building.

Crown Paints Specification Team were called in to attend Fox House’s windows, situated on Portland Street in the city centre. Crown Trade Stronghold Exterior Gloss and Crown Trade Stronghold Exterior Primer Undercoat were specified for the job.

Contract Sales Manager at Crown Paints, Nick Hargrave, explained that due to the building’s location, the windows had deteriorated as they are subject to pollution from the busy road as well as being exposed to all of the natural elements. 

Specifically formulated for use with the Stronghold Exterior Gloss, Crown Trade Stronghold Exterior Primer Undercoat offers long term protection for exterior timber as well as correctly prepared metal work.

With a proven durability of six years, the high-performance solvent-borne glass offers a flexible finish for exterior wood.

A product that would protect the windows and last for the long-term was required and the Stronghold Exterior range will do just that, explained Nick Hargrave. The flexibility of the products means they work with the timber frames well and offer UV protection, he added.
