The house had cracks emerging in the exterior paintwork as a result of the inadequate water-based product originally applied, leaving the building materials vulnerable to damage and decay.

The Stormshield range

Rainbow Decorators used Johnstone’s Alkali Resisting Primer to prevent deposits forming that would have a detrimental effect on the performance of the top coat.

With the addition of Johnstone’s Stormshield Pliolite-based Masonry Finish in a sandstone shade, the house now demonstrates a quality, low maintenance finish which is developed to withstand the elements for up to 15 years.

Pliolite-based Masonry finish is specially designed for use in low temperatures or when rain is imminent, which allowed Rainbow Decorators to complete the paintwork without delay.

Johnstone’s Smooth Metal Paint, part of the Metal Defence System, was applied to the metal garage door, gutters, drain pipes, handrails and gates to provide a smooth semi-gloss finish.

As a primer and top coat in one, it provided a time-saving solution whilst offering five years protection from rust due to its anti-corrosive properties.

Peter Lockhart of Rainbow Decorators commented: “The backbone of a good painter is his product, that’s why I only recommend Johnstone’s products to my customers. From a little help from Johnstone’s this project turned from a poor finish to a customer’s and decorator’s delight.”
