All exterior painted substrates such as wood, metal and render are painted for protective as well as decorative purposes. Applying paint, varnish or stain will help to preserve the integrity of the substrate against the elements. New substrates properly treated will last for years depending on its function. Older substrates such as timber sash windows and doors will begin to deteriorate over time. Once the protective layer is compromised the exposed areas will be at the mercy of the English weather.


Your decorator will be able to rectify any damage done depending on the extent of the damage. Replacement can be costly so the longer the issues are ignored the worse they may become.


Don’t forget, working outdoors is weather dependant.
