Keeping it Clean and Tidy

newly paintedWe all know that a boundary wall is a necessity and no longer just an option as it was in the past.

Boundary walls are our first line of defence, therefore we need to ensure that that are always in pristine condition to ensure the best first line of defence in our security systems.

Take regular walks around your garden to inspect your walls to ensure that there are no cracks or damage to your walls.

There are tilow boundary wallmes when ground has sunk due to excessive rainfall, and this can cause the walls to sink and crack, therefore it is a very good idea to ensure that the foundation and footing of your wall is sufficient to withstand the harshest weather conditions.

Always ensure that there is no debris accumulating against your walls, as this can cause fungi to develop and spoil the beauty of your walls.

For security reasons, make sure that there are no bushes or trees growing near the walls to offer a hiding place to intruders.

Unless you have tinted walls, then you will need to repaint at least once a year to ensure that you retain the aesthetic beauty of your walling.

If your walls are a bit low, then raising them is an excellent decision to make, and we at Country Wide Walling are true experts in the task. If you need to discuss the raising of your walls to ensure you are making the right decision, then please feel free to contact us and discuss it with one of our highly trained consultants.,

Avoiding Damage

paint blisteringWe know the value of precast boundary walls or fencing for our property as it provides security and protection for our family and property.

Country Wide Walling can provide you with a pre-coloured wall which will stay aesthetically pleasing for many, many years, as well as adding value to your property. The colouring is added during the manufacturing process, and saves a lot of time and effort and unnecessary expense.

If you have plain unpainted prefab walling or fencing, you will need to repaint them every 2 (two) to 3 (three) years to keep them aesthetically pleasing and avoid them be damaged by constant bad weather.

We all know that painting the fencing or walling is a time-consuming project, but it is also a very important project, which will extend the life of our boundary security walling or fencing.

We highly recommendnewly painted that the colour be added during the manufacturing process, but we also realize that many walls and fences were erected many years before that concept took root.

The paint will form a barrier between your wall or fence and the elements. This is important as it offers protection, and not only extends the life of your structure, it also helps prevent you having to replace it due to large scale damage from the elements.

When choosing paint for your wall or fence, make sure it is an outdoor paint, as these are specially treated to withstand the effects of bad weather.

When painting, please remember to apply at least 3 (three) thin layers of paint which can be applied by either using a paint brush, sprayed on or by using a roller.

Precast Concrete Wall Repairs

concrete crackIf your Concrete Wall has developed hairline cracks or small holes, you can and should repair it immediately to avoid the damage growing and causing a weak spot in your security.

Firstly, clean the area around the cracks or small holes using coarse sandpaper. Make sure you remove all dirt and dust from the wall.

Next, you need to soak the area around the small holes or cracks and keep wet for a few hours. Doing this will prevent the dry concrete from absorbing the water from the cement grout once you have applied it.

Mix the cement and water in a metal bucket to form a thick. Smooth grout. You need to stir continuously to prevent any lumps from forming.

Next you need to fill the hairline crack with the cement, using a trowel. You can use the trowel handle tip to pack the grout firmly and fully into the holes. Always press and spread the grout into the crack and over the edges, then smooth the grout down with the flat side of your trowel.

Cover the repaired cracks and holes with large plastic sheet, which you must tape with duct tape.

For 5 days, you need to dampen the repaired cracks or holes with a little water, then cover again. Do this every single day for the 5 days.

You can then apply a silane-based sealant to the repairs and a few cms all around the cracks or holes, to ensure a good, stable seal. Use a synthetic bristle paint brush for this.

Honeycomb in ConcreteMake sure you check your walls regularly for any sign or cracks or holes, then repair immediately to prevent any cracks extending or widening, and holes enlarging.

Security is very important today, and in no way must you allow any cracks or holes to stay unattended, thus giving would-be intruders an easy way into your property.

We, at Country Wide Walling, seriously recommend that you get the professionals to do any mending or replacing on your precast concrete walls, as this will ensure that the repairs will be done professionally and last a very long time.
