Weatherproofing and Protection of External Facades
Protecting your building against the damaging effects of wind and rain will save you money, improve comfort levels and help prevent structural damage.
Here you will find a selection of carefully chosen, proven materials to protect your building whilst remaining vapour open.
Even the smallest cracks allowing air to move through a structure can cause a catastrophic collapse in the performance of the insulation plus moving air cools and increases the risk of interstitial condensation where liquid water can cause significant structural decay and can cause mould or fungal growth.
There are products here to help seal, waterproof, re-point, repair, decorate, and protect building facades all are equally suitable for newbuild or refurbishment.

Stormdry is a breathable, colourless, BBA approved, deeply penetrating, water repellent cream for brick, stone, and concrete. Due to its cream-based formulation it is able to penetrate more deeply into masonry than standard liquid-applied brick sealer products.
Stormdry is easy to apply using a brush or roller and only a single coat application is required - many competing water repellent products require two coats.
Stormdry's silane/siloxane technology works by lining the pores of porous bricks, rather than blocking them - allowing the wall to continue to breathe. This is in contrast to many standard brick sealer products, which coat the masonry with a thin film
Stormdry has been specially formulated to be colourless once dry, which allows the walls to retain their original appearance once protected against penetrating damp.
