Facade Coating

Waterproof, self-cleaning & breathable exterior wall coating

Keep your property clean and dry.

Our Facade Coating uses the latest nano technology to repel water and dirt and keep your property dry, clean and attractive. It mimics the super hydrophobic (highly water repellent) and self cleaning capabilities of the Lotus leaf.

During wind driven rain, walls would normally absorb a lot of moisture. When our Facade Coating is applied, the rain water is repelled and the walls remain dry – water absorption is reduced by up to 93.4%. Instead of absorbing into the walls, the water forms into droplets which simply run off the surface.

A dry house is a warm house. Wet walls act like a thermal bridge causing heat to  transfer away from the property which in turn can lead to higher energy bills. Scientific testing revealed that by keeping the walls dry, our Facade Coating improves energy efficiency and as such has been verified by the Energy Saving Trust.

The newly painted appearance of your  home will last much longer with our Facade Coating as dirt is simply washed away with rainfall and due to a lack of moisture in the walls, the unsightly growth of moss, algae or lichens is made more difficult. Your property remains clean and attractive.


Moisture in the walls of a property can cause a host of problems for your house, your health and your pocket too. By keeping your walls dry, you can help to prevent; 

  • Penetrating damp
  • Structural damage caused by sulphate attack
  • Cracking caused by frost
  • Accelerated decay of building materials

Protect your home from the damaging effects
of the weather and give yourself peace of


Our Facade Coating does not restrict the ability of the building to breathe. Water vapour permeability testing was conducted in accordance with BS EN ISO 7783:2011 and it demonstrated that the coating had little effect on air and moisture escaping. Unlike some wall coatings ours does not block the pores of the masonry.

Stay Dry & Warm

When applied, the exterior wall coating creates a waterproof, super hydrophobic surface commonly referred to as the ‘lotus effect‘ due to its similarity to the water repelling properties of the lotus leaf. When it rains, coated mineral surfaces will repel the water, causing it to form beads (because the water is more attracted to itself than the surface) and run off without being absorbed. Independent tests have shown that it reduces water absorption by 93.4% and therefore meets the British standard for water vapour resistance BS EN ISO 7783:2011.

UKAS accredited tests demonstrated that by reducing water absorption of the walls, the wall coating lead to thermal performance benefits & has been proven to meet EAD 040083-00-0404.

In addition, testing in a hygrothermal chamber revealed that a wall treated with the wall coating and subjected to repeated heat-rain conditions in accordance with EAD 090062-00-0404, resulted in reduced heat loss when compared with the uncoated (control) wall. The uncoated wall showed on average an increase of 6⁰C of heat loss in comparison to the walls coated with our products.

The wall coating also improves thermal efficiency and contributes to lower energy consumption and lower energy bills, by keeping walls dry. Damp walls act as ‘thermal bridges’ – enabling heat to transfer from the inside out twice as quickly as it would if the walls remained dry.

Prevent & Protect

Our exterior wall coating not only improves the appearance of the building, it helps to maintain and protect it long term.

  • It mimics the lotus leaf by creating a self-cleaning surface. Dirt particles are unable to obtain a hold on treated surfaces and will simply flow off with rainfall
  • The growth of moss, algae and lichens is deterred due to the dry surface created by the wall coating
  • Helps to prevent discolouration
  • Similarly, it slows the ageing or breakdown of the surface of the building by helping to protect it from the damaging effects of the weather including wind driven rain, frost, high air humidity and sea salt penetrated air
  • Performance is unaffected by UV rays
  • The coating is colour stable, ensuring a long-term, attractive finish

Proven Performance

Our Facade Coating has undergone independent tests by UKAS certified body Lucideon and has been proven to meet the following standards;

  • EAD 040083-00-0404 – 25 year hygrothermal performance
  • EAD 090062-00-0404 – external thermal insulation composite
  • BS EN ISO 7783 – 2011 – water vapour diffusion
  • BS EN ISO 12572 – water vapour resistance

Professional Preparation and Application

  • Full inspection of the external walls
  • Cleaning of walls to provide the best possible surface to apply the masonry creme
  • Any areas in need of attention are repaired
  • Repointing carried out where required

We take pride in ensuring that all preparatory steps are carried out to the highest standard so that the masonry creme can give you as much benefit as possible. Read more about our installation process here.

1: Survey

Check the condition of all outside walls.

2: Cleaning

By removing all the dirt, mould, stains and flaky paint we can quickly see where repairs need to be made to give the best possible surface for the treatment to bond to.


3: Moss and Algae Prevention

Any moss, lichens or algae are treated to remove their roots and spores, and ultimately preventing them from being able to grow back.

4: Initial Repair to Cracks

We meticulously work to remove any loose material from cracks in the walls and then fill them using an exceptionally high-quality filler. This gives us the best possible surface, free from debris.


5: Repairs to Render

Damaged render is removed and then replaced to ensure a uniformed, matched surface.

6: Bagging

Poor quality and unpainted surfaces undergo additional treatment to provide phenomenal stabilisation


7: Primer Coat

Our dedicated primer is applied. This gives the best possible surface for the teatment to adhere to and helps give the treament its long lifespan

6: Coating Application

Finally, the hydrophobic, energy-saving coating is applied! This is either invisible or if one of our facade coatings is being used, it is to your chosen colour and texture.
