No. 2 Ravenscliffe, Laxey

2 Ravenscliffe Laxey Isle of ManThis property demanded a range of different treatments on each different elevation.

Keim systems were utilised in combination, ranging from natural stone repair using Keim Restauro, Keim Universal render; suitable for covering mineral, organic and mixed substrates, Keim Soldalit Fixativ as base coat for strongly absorbent substrates and KEIM Contact Plus Grob used as a bonding bridge.

Finally coatings of finishing coats were applied resulting in a minimum 15 year warranty.

Inspection / SurveyProduct selectionContractorsOutcome - The Result
This property on Telephone Exchange Road has undergone extensive refurbishment and renovation both internally and externally.

The front elevation render was unsightly and areas of embellishments were broken or missing. The gable elevation had been rendered with a lime render and the rear elevation were of original unpainted sand/cement.

The external elevations commanded three differing specifications –

1. Front Elevation

The render panels were then “over-rendered” with KEIM Universal Render at 5mm thickness to equalise the surfaces followed by 2 coats KEIM Soldalit-ME mineral paint.
